8 Mile

Eminem, eat your heart out.

Yellow star is Oak Avenue Home Base. (not Carl’s Jr.)

Here’s an 8 mile loop I’m aiming for tonight. I ran a different 8 mile loop on Thursday, but for some reason this one looks more intimidating. Me thinks it’s partly due to a weekend of good eats and treats. There’s no shortage of calories this time of year.

Goal this week: Mon-Thursday training, Friday off, Sat morning run, Sunday rest.

I’ll taper back and adjust my distances from week to week, experimenting with some shorter, faster runs, eventually settling on a 5-7 mile core loop. This routine also involves a lot of cross-training as well, like the hike mentioned below; roller blading and biking are fair game, too. We’ll see what happens… It’s all about balance.
