Training

The Saturday Morning Workout

Our staple club run, for the Saturday Morning Workout we meet at 8:00am for a lap or two (or three) around our home 3.1 mile "track." The group always starts out easy and we have several pace groups ranging from 7 min miles to 10 min miles or more. The meet-up spot is the Lake Merritt Amphitheater located at the south side of the lake. All are welcome, so let us know if you're interested in coming out!

If you're driving to meet us, there is a nearby parking lot on Lakeshore that generally has a few spots. 

Other Weekly Workouts

Temescal Tuesday: this is a more casual, shorter run starting in Temescal at 6:15am on Tuesday mornings. The main course is a 5.5 mile loop, and the pace is generally between 8:00 - 8:30 min/miles. The group meets on the northeast corner of 40th and Telegraph Ave

 

Witter Wednesday Track: we also meet for mid-week speed and strength workouts at 6:15am on Wednesday mornings, at the Piedmont High School track).

Thursday Femmes/Women/Non-binary Run: Come join the OTC folks living outside of the he/him area of the gender construct for some recovery-paced miles through Piedmont, or around the lake. We usually cover 5-7 miles together. All paces are welcome—we stop and regroup at least once or twice during this run!

Friday OTC | Renegade Running Sunrise Run: every Friday at 6:30am we meet at Renegade Running for an easy 4-6 mile loop around the Town! 

 

Sunday Long Run: we coordinate on a week-to-week basis to meet up for Sunday morning long runs. These are often runs that take us into the beautiful local trails.

The best way to stay abreast of our training schedule is to join up with the club on Strava, where we post about training and events.
