OCT 11, 2017 WAWA: “The Octopus Returns!”

Bringing back the “Octopus Hills Workout” this week that I introduced back in June!

Recall, as I mentioned back then, that 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 5:45 am!
