Welcome back to WAWA after a well-deserved “rest week”! This week, we’re doing a great hills workout I’ve titled the “Octopus Hills Workout”.
We’re activating our “summer schedule” starting this week which means we’ll gather at 6 am ET. Enjoy the extra 20 minutes of sleep!
Did you know an octopus has 6 arms and 2 legs? I assumed they were all legs…but Google told me otherwise. For our run workout, we’ll follow the extensions of the octopus. Our two “leg” routes will take us to-from the Cornwell Center to the starting point for the hills workout. And I’ve got 6 “arms” (ie. hill routes) for the main set of the workout.
Here’s the planned route:
LEG 1: Warm up run to Starting Point:
Exit Cornwell Center, turning right onto Selwyn Avenue. Take left down Radcliff. Turn right onto Queens Road West. Then up the Booty Loop hill to the intersection of Queens Road & Hopedale.
Distance: Approximately 1 mile
6 ARMS: Main Running Set:
First Arm: Starting Point up Hopedale (East) and back.
Second Arm: Starting Point up Granville and back.
Third Arm: Starting Point up Queens Road West, left down Ardsley, and back.
Fourth Arm: Starting Point up Queens Road West, left down Coniston and back.
Fifth Arm: Starting Point down Hopedale (West) and back.
Sixth Arm: Starting Point down Queens Road West to bottom of hill, then back to Starting Point.
Distance: Approximately 3.5 miles
LEG 2: Easy jog from Starting Point back to Cornwell Center:
Starting Point up Hopedale (East), turn right onto Queens/Selwyn, then left into the parking lot for the Cornwell Center.
Distance: Approximately 1 mile.
TOTAL Distance is approximately 5.5 miles.
Meet outside the Cornwell Center, ready to go at 6 am!
