Races for me fall into two categories. I either run them to race (against myself), or I run them to get an exciting, fun tour of a cool city with thousands of others who love running, too. Los Angeles Marathon falls into the second category. I will run Utah Valley Marathon in June and that will fall into the first category.
I have trained hard for races, I have trained leisurely, and I have run races untrained (don’t do it.) People are always asking me what training plans to use. There are thousands out there. Don’t google training programs- you’ll get overwhelmed.
I’m gonna make things easy for you today.
If you have a solid base (4-6 months consistent running) and you’re ready to start training for a race, or you’ve run a race but are ready to step up your game, this book is the one for you. Bart Yasso has programs for first-timers and programs that include speed training for those who have a race under their belt and are ready to run their next race with a time goal.
To say I am a Bart Yasso fan is a little bit of an understatement. His book is what inspired me to start taking 26.2 mile tours of cities all over the world. Here are a few pictures of us.
