The beauty of the LTR II is that it takes all comers. It's the perfect introductory program for novice runners. The LTR II program can also be a useful part of a larger training program, building speed for runners who primarily run longer distances. No matter what your ability, this program will test your capacity to maintain a consistent pace over distance.

Keep in mind, of course, that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all training program. While the LTR II training schedule offered here are solid and dependable, you should feel free to tinker with them and make them your own. Adapt them to your own rhythms.

Final Point: There's no magic number that will make you accomplish your running goals. Focus on consistency, not making stupid mistakes, and only moving up your mileage when you're ready and comfortable. Always listen to your body.

The 10k is the single event where any runner can enjoy the full range of everything road racing has to offer. As a test of both speed and endurance, this distance combines the best aspects of the 5k and marathon. That means that improving your 10k performance can put you in striking distance of improvements at those other distances as well. In fact, much of the appeal of the 10k is not only that it demands versatility of runners, but also that it helps to develop it within them. Running the 10k often means running better.

ATB Clinic

Start Date: December 5th

Tues & Thurs 6p

As more and more runners on the North Shore turn to the ATB to prove their running mettle, a sensible training schedule is more important than ever for building safely to peak performance.

The North Shore ATB 16 week clinic is geared towards those wanting to prepare for the Around the Bay Race on March 25th, 2018. Participants should be comfortable running 1 hour. Group runs are on Tuesday & Thursday nights at 6 pm and long runs on Saturday mornings at 8 am. Workouts will be posted in 4 week Blocks.

Preparing for the Bay, after all, is no easy thing. It is a big, big time commitment, and for most it demands vast amounts of energy -- physical, mental and emotional. The pay-off, of course, is equally enormous. Enhanced strength, confidence and stoicism are the treasures reaped by all athletes, whatever their ability.

By following the ATB training schedule, you will develop gradually through four training phases: endurance, strength, speed and tapering.

Hope to see you December 5th, laced up and ready for the road.
