How to Plan an Optimal Year of Training and Racing

It’s the start of the new year and of course that means reflection and goal planning.

So, on today’s Run to the Top, I’m going to go over how to plan the optimal year of training and why it’s critical to do this now. You’ll learn:

  • what happens when you don’t make a strategic plan for your goals,
  • how and when to mix up your distances and your training, and
  • what a well-planned yearly calendar looks like for marathoners, half marathoners, and 5k or 10k racers.

If you’ve struggled to make constant progress or find yourself in a constant cycle of lack of motivation and excited about training, this is the perfect lesson for you.

Ask yourself - do you get enough green veggies each day?

I'll admit, I don't. It's tough to fit all of those greens in with an active and busy lifestyle.

But getting in your fruits + veggies is SO crucial as a distance runner for recovery, digestion, and optimal performance.

That's where Athletic Greens is a gamechanger. One scoop has 75 bioavailable vitamins, minerals, and whole food-sourced ingredients including a multivitamin, multimineral, probiotic, green superfood blend, and more.

That means fewer stomach issues, more focus and energy throughout the day (because the workday matters just as much as the morning run), and overall ... just feeling healthier.

Look, if you're struggling to get those fruits + veggies in - or if you keep buying them but they always go bad in the fridge - Athletic Greens will make getting those micronutrients simple and delicious.
