A thread for keeping track of running paths. For example, I will reference these paths in my log entries.

(anyone can create a post in here with their paths)

These are "squares, rectangles, etc" that I can use for speed work etc. These are measured via mapmyrun. For example, I can specify that I ran TAM-1 and only sprinted W->E, with everything else being a recovery jog.. Or I can specify that I sprinted W->E + S->N (combination of two sides of the square).

These measurements are not intended for absolute accuracy. I need to know whether i'm running .25 mi vs 0.5 mi or 1 mi vs 1.5 mi etc. So they are ballpark measurements for me when i'm deciding on what kind of intervals/distances I want to run.

TAM-1:
- W->E = 0.56 mi
- S->N = 0.79 mi

- W->E + S->N = 1.36 mi
- E->W + N->S = 1.58 mi

extra: E->W = N->S is worse than W->E + S->N

surface: concrete sidewalk

kw: nob hill

TAM-2:
- W->E = 0.7 mi
- S->N = 0.52 mi
- E->W = 0.85 mi
- N->S = 1.22 mi

extra:
- W->E and E->W are best to run
- E->W has a big bike lane

surface:
- bike lane = asphalt
- everything else is concrete sidewalk

kw: 75th

TAM-3:
- 1.5 mi
- oval path

surface: pavement sidewalk

kw: home

CS-1:
- S->N = 0.44 mi
- W->E = 0.58 mi
- N->S = 0.57 mi
- E->W = 0.63 mi

tot: 2.2 mi

- S->N + W->E = 1.02 mi
- N->S + E -> W = 1.2 mi
- W->E + N->S + E->W = 1.78 mi

extra: S->N on this course is the worst of all of the asphault sidewalks

surface: asphalt sidewalks!

kw: atlantic

TAMCS-1:

tot: 8.5 mi

surface: pavement-sidewalk, sidewalk

kw: kings point publix
