Sunday Long Run-Swansea, Baby Point, Warren Park

I got some nice feedback on these routes so I thought that we should bring them back.

In the full route, you visit Swansea, Baby Point and Warren Park.

Here is the 16k route:

*notice that when running the Warren Park neighbourhood loop that you run around the absolute perimeter of the neighbourhood.

Add the Baby Point (1.7ish km), Warren Park (2.5ish km), High Park (1.8ish km) loop to increase the distance of your run to your desired distance.

And, if you find that you’re doing your quality work over a hill or two, don’t sweat it if you are a bit slow. You are still putting in the effort.

I hope to join you, but the family is quite sick. Again, I’ll be very jealous that you get to do this run.

Friday Night Workouts Resume

Hello my fellow Longboaters,

We resume Friday Night workouts at High Park tonight.

The workout begins promptly with a warm-up at 6:15 p.m. The warm-up will be a clockwise run on the upper High Park loop so if you are worried that you will be late or you are running to the park as your warm-up, run counter clockwise to catch us.

We’ll meet at at the Grenadier Cafe.

All are welcome. This weeks workout will be a mixture of tempo running and hill sprints. It promises to be very fun.

Any questions, please email me at stevemetzger3@gmail.com.

Scotiabank Sunday and Long Run

Hello all,

We have a huge list of runners hitting the roads for the Scotiabank races tomorrow. I am extremely excited to see you all battle to reach or surpass your goals.

After the race, I thought it would be great to hit a pub to celebrate our friends’ accomplishments. Richard suggested the Town Crier, which is a nice central suggestion. So, Let’s meet at about 1:30 p.m. If you feel that another time is more appropriate, feel free to suggest.

“But Steve,” you say, “I don’t live downtown and I’ll smell and need a shower!” That’s true. My condo’s gym is ready for service with two showers, a men’s and a women’s (230 King St. East), but I’m sure if you ask, you can find something closer. I know that people run out of the Settlement House on Sunday so that could also be an option.

Anyway, I’m giddy with anticipation.

Sunday Long Run?

I’d suggest the Beltline for our New York/Hamilton/Just Coming Out To Run friends meeting at the West End Y friends as it will be out of the way of the race, but of course if you want to do something that hits the race, say, along the waterfront, that will still be great for your race pace work.

The loop at the end is about 2.1 km so you can do as many as you need. This is a good place to do some pick-ups once you have reached halfway of your run (or however far your coach has suggested).

Here is the link to that loop.
