with the best form in Boulder.
We Love This Quote!
“The biggest thing I’ve gotten from communicating with athletes is that they don’t have direction. A lot of people are getting out and doing back-to-back long runs or some ultrarunners will just go out and go long. They run every day and they don’t have any concept of having structure. We are coming from a marathon background into ultrarunning and I think that because we’re so used to a structured kind of training method, we understand how all the training fits together. It’s cool for me that I can finally give back.” – Camille Herron*

Why not choose a training category that’s just above your current skill level?
Training in Category 1
Is about casual consistency – that’s a secret to falling in love with running. You’ll reach a point where you won’t feel right if you miss your workout!
Note – The weekly mileage numbers are estimates only. Experience matters much, much more.
Training in Category 2
Is about systematic- variation. You’ll be weaving in some new ingredients like surge intervals, speed-endurance runs, hill repetitions and a long run of 60-90 minutes. Your weekly runs can be rotated to suit you so you get enough rest.
Training in Category 3
Is about being precise and selective. We’ll shake up the mainstream dependency on quantitative long runs and generic tempo runs with new and different hill workouts and 5K & 10K paced sessions on the road, track or trail, all designed to complement those essential longer efforts.
Training in Category 4
Is about continuing to search out the best in yourself, so you gain the confidence to go your own way, at your own pace, without worrying about how other people train. We all gravitate to Category 4 eventually whether we realize it or not!
