Don’t forget everybody, WE ARE NOT MEETING AT THE TRAINING STUDIO THIS WEEKEND. Instead, we are asking everyone to participate or volunteer with us at the Families for Father 5K event.
Here is another reminder about what you should be doing during the week. Mini marathon people are running two days during the week (with one being at predicted mini marathon pace and the other one minute per mile slower). Each run should be 30-45 minutes long. On the other hand, marathoners should be running three times per week (two runs at predicted marathon pace and one run one minute per mile slower) Try to schedule the runs with the slower pace on Monday (40-55 minutes) and the other race pace runs on Tuesday (25-35 minutes) and Thursday (40-55 minutes). Always try to take Friday off to prepare for our Saturday training.
Here are the scheduled workouts for this weekend. Mini Marathoners should run 5 miles with a 5K effort at the beginning. Marathoners should run 7 miles with a 5K effort at the beginning of the run. Always try to warm-up for at least 4-5 minutes before running at a 5K pace, then run your 5K and finish the run at your predicted marathon or mini marathon pace. If you cannot attend the Families for Fathers 5K with the group just try to run the same scenario on your own.
Don’t forget about the Galloway Calculation form that you used to punch in your Magic Mile times also gives a predicted 5K finish time. Use this weekend to see how close it is.
We hope to see everyone Saturday at the race.
