Medium long run
For long runs, I prefer destination runs--Iron Horse Trail, Alameda's shoreline trail, San Francisco (running over the Golden Gate Bridge is legendary), or even North Berkeley (with the bonus of La Farine or Cactus for post-run refueling). But for medium long runs, I tend to stay in the neighborhood because it's more efficient time-wise, and the rigorous hills above Grand Avenue guarantee a good workout. So the seven miler today included a few solid hills. I'd like to add a mid-week 7-9 mile run to my training plan because I know the extra miles can only help to make me a stronger and, yeah, faster runner.
