2020-21 Beginners – Beginner/Coach Pairings – Week 13

Hello everyone!

Well, it looks like this will be the last week of one-on-one coaching (for now anyway – don’t want to jinx it!) given the announcements yesterday about post-lockdown gatherings.  I want to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all of our guest coaches.  We truly could not have done it without you.  I am so glad you’ve gotten to know some of our fantastic beginners, and they you.

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, we needed to have a couple of you run on Friday.  Based on the poll you did (which I know was almost a month ago now), the list below is how it’s ended up.  If any of you have conflicts, please let me know ASAP so we can figure something else out.

Beginners – don’t forget to fill out the Google form about your intentions for running the Hampton Court Half.  Please fill out this form even if you do not intend to run.  Thank you!

The coach/runner email list is at the bottom.  Here are this week’s pairs.  I hope everyone who celebrates has a Happy Thanksgiving!

  • 20 min run/3 min walk
  • 17 min run/3 min walk

Proposed Route
note – the map below shows the run going in the reverse.  Since many of us ran basically the second half of this last week, I’m doing it in reverse this week to make it a little different.  The RunGo is the reverse.  https://routes.rungoapp.com/route/tpnHwdGuHu

Head down Circus and turn left onto Grove End.  Cross diagonally onto St. John’s Wood Road and turn left onto Cunningham.  Turn right onto Aberdeen Place and cross over Maida Vale, getting on the sidewalk on the right side of Blomfield Rd.  Run a few blocks and turn left on Westbourne Terrace Road Bridge.  At the end of the bridge, turn left to get onto the canal.  Run straight and just after you pass under the highway, bear right into Sheldon Square and run around it, curving up the hill heading towards Paddington Station.  At the top, turn right onto Bishop’s Bridge and run for almost a mile to Ledbury Road.  Turn right onto Ledbury and then right onto Westbourne Park Rd.  Turn left onto Great Western Road and cross over the canal.  Turn right onto Elgin Avenue and keep going, crossing Maida Vale and turning right onto Hamilton Terrace.  Turn left onto Hall Road and run back to Barclays/Starbucks.
