WEEK 7 HALF MARATHON 2019 with ‘SAINTS DAYS’ Training Plan Starts
The month of March starts after this Friday. That’s progress! Runners, congratulate yourself on reaching the point at which the long run at week’s end surpasses the distance you’ll be racing in a St. Patrick’s Day 10K (6.25 miles). Walkers will cover 6 miles, just shy of the actual race distance, and can be equally as proud. If you have not been running or walking hill repeats, consider trying this workout option (Tuesdays) as the spring weather commences. It will add variety and help build strength.
There's only one 'Saints' Day' tune-up race to complete this month before the focus changes, such that you will only be concentrating on preparing for the half marathon. Next week we will start to follow Part 2 of each training plan.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
