Weekly workouts are part of our detailed team training plan, organized and executed under the direction of our RRCA certified coaches. The training and workouts target the Harriers' team racing schedule, with particular emphasis on providing structured coaching for beginner to national class caliber runners.
SPEED WORK: High-intensity interval training. Specific intervals are run hard, and each is followed by a short rest period before the next. Intervals are usually between 200 meters to 1 mile depending on the training cycle.
TEMPO - STEADY STATE RUNNING: Specified intervals or a mid-distance run (4 to 10 miles depending on training cycle) at a steady pace that is 85% to 90% of your maximum aerobic capacity.
LONG RUN: Longer distance run (10 to 20 miles depending on training cycle) at a medium to slow (aerobic) pace.
Sundays: 9am @ Tavern on the Green in Central Park
**Workouts take place January - late November. Locations are sometimes changed for specific workouts or canceled. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm the workout locations if interested in dropping in.
As part of Harriers membership, we also offer comprehensive training plans for both fall and spring marathons that can be customized to each runner's ability. To access all training plans, log into our Meetup page.
