Extra Mile Winter Distance Training

This program targets our more experienced long distance runners who wish to improve their race performance for spring distance events such as the RRCA 10 Mile Club Challenge and the B&A Marathon and Half-Marathon.

This is a “fat-ass” style training program: participants are expected to provide their own hydration and nutrition on group runs (e.g. Gatorade, Tailwind, NUUN, GU, bananas, bagels, bacon, etc… whatever secret sauce you swear by.) . Many of the workouts can be completed with existing training groups such as the Tuesday Night group and the Naptown Running Buddies, or individually.

Program Prerequisites

For the 10 mile or 1/2 only programs, able to run 7 miles comfortably. For the marathon program, able to run 10 miles comfortably and currently averaging at least 25 miles a week.

Current Training Session

2019 Inaugural Extra Mile Winter Training

January 5, 2019 - March 30, 2019

Welcome to the inaugural Extra Mile Training Program!

This program will meet up to five times a week; however you are free to complete the workouts independently as your schedule allows. You are also on the hook to provide your own nutrition and hydration. As this program targets more experienced runners, you probably already have a hydration and nutrition strategy that works for you.

Group workouts will coincide with group workouts with the Tuesday Night Track Workout group and the Naptown Running Buddies runs.

This program is for runners 18 and over. Please no minor children.

The goal is to improve your Spring race at the 10 mile, half marathon or marathon distance with the RRCA Ten Mile Challenge and B&A Marathon specifically in mind, though not exclusively.
