This year's Go The Distance team is more than a third of the way into their Boilermaker 15K training program! With the race less than two months away, runs are getting longer and the training is getting tougher, but the team is doing great.

Even if you're not on the Go The Distance team, all are welcome to join the training runs. On Monday, the team will run 4.7 miles beginning and ending at the Boilermaker finish line. Don't forget to avoid running under the big green arches until race day!

Here is the training routine and schedule for this week:

WEEK 5

As you are aware now, the Go The Distance Program training does it’s training on the Boilermaker course. Familiarize yourself with the course. When you train on your own, be sure it's on some of the course. This will help you discover your strengths and weakness on the course.

The Boilermaker course is deceptively difficult. There are a few hills to contend with. When you are running up hill lean forward, and pump your arms. When you are running down hill, lean back, relax those arms, open and close your hands, and use that hill for an energy source. Run within your own form; do not copy somebody else’s form.

 

Monday (May 15), Day 1 - 4.7 Miles today. Start at the Boilermaker Finish Line, left onto York Street, right onto Old Burrstone Road, right onto Champlin Ave, right onto Whitesboro Street, and back to finish line.

Tuesday, Day 2 – Rest day

Wednesday, Day 3 – 4.5 mile run

Thursday, Day 4 – Rest day

Friday, Day 5 – Rest day

Saturday, Day 6 – 4.7 mile run
