For those running the Oakland Half next week, this week should be a taper run, an easy 6-8 miler. You could practice pick-ups, where you accelerate to race pace for a mile at a time, just to practice the speed at which you hope to be racing next week.
For those in maintenance mode, or gearing up to start on our 18-week SF Marathon and Half Marathon training program, we suggest 6 to 8 as well.
For those with spring marathons, it’s a 20-miler! Please let Jay Kloepfer know directly if you’re planning on running the 20 miler, as we may alter the starting time to suit the expected warm weather.
