We had a great walk and chat today…thanks everyone for getting up early on a Saturday. We will be stepping things up with more running at each event.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
We will start the first phase of our “training” on Monday, September 18. This starts our ESTABLISHING A SCHEDULE phase. The goal for this 6-week phase is to get into a routine of running and walking 4-times a week. I have scheduled the first 3-weeks of runs and included both morning and evening runs. Because we are now running a little more and our group is growing…the goal with these new routes it to have wider sidewalks or pathways and less stops.
- Mondays: 6:30 pm, Glendale, Nibley Park to Verdugo (2.5-miles)
- Wednesdays: 6:30 am, Griffith Park / LA River Loop (4.5-miles)
- Thursdays: 6:30 pm, Burbank, Chandler Bikeway Loop (5.5-miles)
- Saturdays: 8:00 am, Griffith Park Loop (5.25-miles)
Over these 6-weeks between September 19th and October 29th, our focus is on keeping up with the schedule of 4-runs each week. We’ll be tracking our weekly minutes, targeting for 80-140 minutes of running or walking each week.
Our short-term goal is to feel comfortable running 3-4 miles, without stopping. So in anticipation of meeting this goal I have scheduled a 4-mile Celebration Run and Potluck Brunch for Saturday, October 29th.
Thanks to all of you, you have motivated me to get up in the morning when I would otherwise sleep the morning away. I am running more that I would on my own – so keep coming and keep moving in the forward direction! Thanks!
