What Are You Training For?

What Are You Training For?

Without mesocycles and training blocks to number our weeks and measure progress, it can be hard to stay focused, or even motivated to train. ‘What am I training for’? may even become a question we ask ourselves when there seems to be little point in getting out the door. There’s another way to look at this gap in the race schedule, though: instead of training for an uncertain finish line, we can train for the next starting line.

Boston Marathon Course Strategy

Congratulations—you’ve made it! Just qualifying for the Boston Marathon is worth celebrating. Oftentimes, as marathoners who enjoy type-A fun activities (like marathons), we lose sight of how epic it is to even be at the start line and have the privilege to compete amongst the world’s best. Throw in the most unpredictable weather each year, and you’ve got yourself one of the most celebrated days in the running universe. Be prepared for the course and know what to expect!
