Saturday Training 09/13/08: Peacock Flats

Aloha Athletes,

For this week, were heading back to the N. shore, up to the
Dillingham/Peacock area. This is a great training area. Hope you can make it!

Meeting time: 5:50 am (Please be on time–allow an hour drive from Honolulu/Windward.)

Starting time: 6:00 am

Meeting place: Dillingham Airfield (drive to the far end of
Dillingham Airfield and turn left into the last gate…circle around
back and park in the parking lot behind airfield control tower.)

Training: Up Kealia Trail, across some other roads and trails, uphill, downhill, some flat–very little flat actually, great views, good company, guaranteed fun!!!

Distance: More or less–Could be as little as you like or as much as you want, some will probably do around 27 miles

Time: How fast are you? Again, spend as much or as little time as you like. Could be an hour, depending on your distance (and speed), could be 6-8 hours plus.

IMPORTANT !! Bring plenty of water and carry minimum of 50-70 oz. per loop. 

Plan ahead and bring all the water/sports drink/food
that you will need. Water has been stashed above and there will be a water drop at the corner of Mokule’ia Access Road and Farrington Highway. It will likely be hot and humid, so you will most-likely consume
more fluids than normal. A hat and sunscreen are a must ! Don’t forget electrolytes.
