Ashland-based training team for the Patrick Henry Half Marathon
Latest Activity: Aug 15, 2011
The training program will be Long Slow Distance workouts on Saturday mornings from the John Rolfe YMCA or Patrick Henry YMCA. It will be complemented with clinics focused on half-marathoner needs.
This program is designed for both novices and experienced runners. You do not need to have completed a previous half marathon to participate. The runners will be broken up into sub-groups of similar abilities. Each sub group will have at least one coach to help out. You do need to be currently able to run at least 3 miles and should be running about 10 miles per week at a 12 minute per mile pace or better for the novice group. The first run will be 5 miles. The weekly long run will be gradually increased up to about 15 miles.
This training team is a joint production of the Richmond Road Runners Club, the John Rolfe and Patrick Henry YMCA's.
Novice: You should be able to do a 3 mile run, be logging at least 10 miles per week, and running at least 3 days per week consistently (running pace needs to be no more than 13 minute miles).
