I’d like to see you run these 2 milers on a varied terrain course (a good mix of hills and flat). One suggestion would be my off/on 2 mile circuit down at Riverview, with the first mile as a hilly loop on the road (Market-Chesapeake) and the 2nd mile as a flat loop down along the river path. I’ll have Leah post my suggested map.
Think that first mile is hilly? Just wait: We’ll be back in Bellair for the next workout on February 16!
SUNDAY February 3
Come join us for 4-5 social AHR miles at 75-78% at 6:45am at Greenberry’s
