Apologies for the double post. We had a copy/paste error on the Google sheet and only posted the partial week.
We’ll actually be doing a very light workout tomorrow and you there’s one to do on your own Friday. This won’t be enough to tax your legs but will be enough so that you don’t lose the feel of marathon pace. We want to ensure you keep some marathon effort based miles in this week so that you’re not running marathon pace for the first time in 10+ days on race day which isn’t great for your legs and can be a bit mentally taxing.
The 60-90 minute ‘super easy’ run will be Thursday.
Wednesday, 11/3: Meet at 6:30pm behind the Met – for 2x 1600m @ your expected Marathon Pace, with 1 mile warm up and 1 mile cool down
Thursday, 11/4: On your own: 1-1:30hrs slow, the only objective of this is to make you hungry so your body can absorb more carbs. It’s a very slow run. **Recommend using Thursday Night Run as part of your miles if you can.
Friday, 11/5: On your own: for 1x 1600m @ your expected Marathon Pace, with 1 mile warm up and 1 mile cool down
Saturday, 11/6: Optional 1-3 miles slow. Feel free to join our Saturday Morning Run but preferable just for brunch 🙂
Sunday, 11/7: – Marathon day, enjoy!
Please reach out to me, Gabe or Brian with any questions.
Happy taper and see everyone Sunday!!
