Week 7: Drop Week
Half/Full Marathon Training
This week will be our last week at Percy Warner Park. We will meet at Shelby Park for two weeks, then we will head to Centennial Park for 5 weeks in a row. HEADS UPS: When we move to Centennial Park, we will move to start time up to 8 a.m.
Location: Percy Warner Park
Time: 9 a.m.
Workout: Easy Distance Run. 60, 70 or 90 minutes.
This is one of our two drop weeks (The next one is March 9/10). That is where we run shorter and slower than normal to allow our bodies to completely recover. Running is all about recovering from working hard. You don't become a better runner by running hard. You become a better runner by recovering from running hard. Both parts are necessary: hard workouts and recovery. This week is recovery!
So enjoy the park...run slow (especially up the hills) and head out to brunch afterwards.
