The countdown to the Broad Street Run is on. Thinking about 10 weeks of training can be overwhelming so we put together 10 tips fo training for 10 miles.
If you're thinking of running the Broad Street Run this year, here are 10 things you should know about Philadelphia's favorite 10 mile race:
The race was exhilarating. I was representing Philadelphia Runner Track Club, or PRTC, for the first time while racing on the 5K course at Belmont Plateau in Philadelphia. It was hilly! So hilly! People hike Mt. Everest and think "At least I didn't have to race Belmont Plateau!" I may just be being a baby about hills, but have I mentioned it was hilly?
Happy race month! After last week's cutback longer run, it's peak week! You are fit, strong and ready to take on any training on any day. You've been putting in the work so you're ready to go the distance. This weeks long run is the longest of our training plan but by now the miles should be starting to pass by more quickly. Make sure you take some time to appreciate what you have done and what you are still doing! Keep hydrating, stretching, and getting enough sleep this week.
