For those of you gearing up for the February 14th festivities, here is a mapmyrun.com course for a 1.5 mile loop from Mebane Espress. You might consider this as an option on Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings.
- Try warming up with a few blocks of walking or jogging.
- Run the loop once at a moderate pace.
- Stop at the coffee shop and rest – standing – for 10 minutes or so.
- Run the loop again at a race pace (watch out for traffic!)
- Stop at the coffee shop and rest – standing – for 10 minutes.
- Repeat with a slower loop.
- Cool down, stretch and enjoy the coffee!
