We believe each runner is unique and deserves a personalized training plan. Canned plans may be able to get you to the finish line, but we want to do more than help get you to the finish. We want to guide you to a lifetime of running. There will be many races to run and goals to achieve, but we want to make sure you remain healthy and happy on your running journey.
The WHY behind the Type of Run:
Easy/Long Runs: 1) build up resistance to injury by taking it easy vs. every run being at a push pace, 2) limits stress on mind & body, promotes joy in running, 3) strengthens the heart muscle, and 4) increases vascularization
These runs, like speed work, will feel uncomfortable. That’s okay as long as you aren’t compromising form. These runs serve as an opportunity to focus on running mechanics.
Marathon: This workout is pretty obvious. This is your chance to get used to the pace, build confidence, practice fluids & nutrition intake, etc.
Threshold: Improves endurance (body’s ability to clear lactate)
Interval: Improves aerobic power and makes the body work at or near VO2 max
Repetition: Improves speed, anaerobic power, and running economy (typically shorter distances of 800 m or below)
