Plan on parking at One Texas on Saturday morning as the recently reopened park is being taken over by SXSW related activities (of which I will not opine).
The Workout – 6 mile tempo
News – there will be a long run departing the zero at 7:00:00 am Saturday. Off the trail this week for 7.77 miles or 11.00 miles. It’s important to know that, as mapped, it is necessary to cross the MoPac footbridge to the north side about 2 miles into the run and then cross back to the south to enjoy Stratford. There will be water/Gatorade at the following spots:
water @ the rock (mile 2 – everyone)
Gatorade @ Redbud/Lake Austin (mile 4.5 – everyone)
Gatorade @ Windsor/Hopi Trail (mile 7 – 11 milers)
water @ the rock (mile 5.77 for the 7.77 milers and mile 9 for the 11 milers)
There are a few early options:
5:45 am – lollipop plus Wilkes (7 to 9 miles at a good clip). J et al.
5:50 am – FROM THE BREAKFAST PLACE. 7 miles at 8 – 8:15 per. And back to the breakfast place. 2 miles at 8 – 8:15 per. Kate et al.
6:00:00 am – 4 mile run/walk at 11:30 per. Al et al.
6:00 am – 20 miles at 8:30 – 8:45 per. Not returning to the zero to join the group at 7:00:00 am! Big et al.
Breakfast at La Feria (2010 S Lamar) at 9:09:09 am.
Run every chance you get!
