Marathon Weekend Celebration from City Park- 5, 13 or 20 Miles
The actual Louisiana Marathon Weekend is pushed back to March 7th. But we can celebrate by running the course and distance. Since we ran from downtown last Saturday, I wanted to change it up but still run the course.
Marathoners – I know from conversations that several of you have lost your steam for running the marathon. But if it’s still your goal – let’s go ahead and get some distance as planned for this weekend anyway. It can just be a steady run to cover the distance. You can run the 7 miles before we meet at 7:30 or add it on when we get back to City Park. It takes in the 2nd part of the course.
5 Miles – run the downtown loop and back to City Park. You get the double trouble Overpass workout in it.
13 Miles – this is basically Louisiana Half with the downtown loop first. But I have you hopping over to 3rd St. on the way back out of downtown.
20 Miles – run the first 13 and add on this segment before or after.
SUGGESTED WATER/ELECTROLYTE STOPS – City Park Oak tree after the downtown loop and BR Beach on the way back. I will leave a box of sample gels and blocks at City Park if you want to try some.
