Happy New Year! I hope you had a fantastic holiday break! It will be great to see you all again. This is the week to get back into running. The routes this week are straight forward. If you didn’t run at all over the holidays, you might consider limiting your mileage this week and easing back into a regular running routine.
Congratulations to Sunny Brenneman who got a new full-time job! We’re happy for you, but we’re really going to miss running with you weekly.
LONG RUN – 7 miles
Monday 6 January (9s, 10s, 12s)
Wednesday 8 January (11s)
Green Park Loop
Head to Hyde Park the usual way and run along the eastern edge of the park to Hyde Park Corner. Cross under the Wellington Arch and run down Constitution Hill to The Mall. Run a short distance down The Mall, turn left and run along the eastern edge of Green Park to Piccadilly. Turn left on Piccadilly and run along the northern edge of Green Park back to Hyde Park Corner. Cross back into Hyde Park and run back up the eastern edge of the park to the Upper Brook Street exit and back to SJW via the normal route.
TEMPO RUN – 6 miles
Monday 6 January (11s)
Wednesday 8 January (9s , 10s, 12s)
Run South on Finchley/Wellington Road to the SJW Church Roundabout, follow the sidewalk to the left and cross Prince Albert Road at the crosswalk just beyond the SJW Church. Continue east and enter the canal at the Charlbert entrance. Run east [left], cutting through the Camden Lock Market until you run out of canal path at Islington. Touch the canal boat tunnel wall—this is The Wall!—then turn around and re-trace your steps back to SJW. When you come off the canal at Regents Park, take Charlbert to Allitsen to SJW High Street to Starbucks.
Friday 20 December – The Heath
It’s Friday again, so everyone up Fitzjohn’s. You can pick your distance and whatever you choose, there will certainly be someone else interested in running that distance. All of these routes are on the website.
In addition, every week there are a group of women who prefer to do a flat run. We can help make sure that you find each other.
4 miles: A great way to ease into running the hill. Run up to the Hampstead tube station and back.
5 miles: The Betsy Route
6-7 miles: The partial Heath route
8 miles: The full Heath route
