 DETAILS 

1 PROGRAM DETAILS

The weekend sessions are focused on improving your long run. You will gradually increase your run volume, being careful to run at a pace that will maximize your body’s ability to recover and to use energy efficiently (coaches will provide guidance on appropriate pacing, and you may choose to train with a heart rate monitor to manage your effort level appropriately.) Some sessions will also focus specifically on your race pace. Typical participant paces range from run/walk at 16-18 minute miles, to 8-8:30 miles. You are not “too slow” for this program!
