The Run Nike Women Series Facebook page announced yesterday that the DC Half Marathon App will be available on January 24. The app’s first training run will be on February 3. While I’ve been training with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, which is the race’s official philanthropic partner, I love the format of the app. Whether you’re a new runner whose goal is to finish the race, or if you want to beat or smash your PR, there’s a plan for you. Everyone will be running the same distance on race day, but every runner needs her own plan of attack. I’ll continue following my coach’s training plan but will compare with Nike along the way.
As a beginner, this is an infographic of the Nike training plan I would use. 317.1 miles in 58 training runs over 12 weeks. I’ll have to add up how many miles I run through the TNT plan over the next three months. I’m sure the milage is similar. Nike knows that cross training is also important when training for an endurance event. They recently relaunched their Nike Training Club App, as well. This app will help those training for the race grow stronger and prevent an overuse injury. I plan to try out my first Training Club workout over the long weekend. I know they must be good if Emily Cook Harris is recommending them. I’d love workout recommendations, if you’ve already used the app.
Was in need of a little retail therapy last night and bought the Leg-A-See Just Do It leggings.
