Let the training begin! Only 16 weeks until the NYC Marathon. Here is my training plan (it is an adapted version of this NYRR plan).
Flex Day: Option to rest, run, or cross-train. Do whatever feels right
Intervals: Run short fast repeats with recovery jogs in between to build speed and endurance
Tempo Run: Pace slightly slower than 10k pacce
Recovery Run: Run at what feels right for your body for only 30 minutes – for me this is about 3 miles
ATEA: Athletes to End Alzheimers – this is the team I’m running for (see more below)
Don’t forget, I’m running for the Alzheimer’s Charity and still trying to meet my $3500 fundraising goal. If you want to learn more about the charity and/or donate you can do so here.
