Every Monday This Page Will be Updated with the Workout of the Week.

With the fall season of races just past, we’ve reset and are now looking far ahead into the spring races. The workouts currently are built towards preparing you to train specifically and purposefully towards a 10KM, 1/2 or Full Marathon. If you’re interested in joining our training group focused on races in May-July of 2019 please let me know.

Please share and “enjoy” them with the hashtag #areteendurance

How to Determine my Paces for Workouts:

There are multiple online pace calculators on the internet. The best place to start is with a recent race result or equivalent performance. There is a tendency to enter times based on what you want to achieve, not where you currently are at. Don’t do it, be honest and you’ll train better and happier. Also be aware that different calculators use different words to describe the same pace zones (threshold or tempo for example). I use the titles described in the first calculator below.
