How can the grass be getting green in New York in the middle of January? Normally, I'd be looking for snow within 50 miles to go cross-country skiing this weekend. Maybe I'd find some this weekend if I drove 500 miles. Suddenly, training in New York feels more San Diego.
So what's the best way to take advantage of it? Skip the pool this weekend and pack in some long, zone 2 workouts with some speed in the end. Try this 10-mile long run this weekend:
- 1 mile warmup
- 3 miles marathon pace
- 3 miles half marathon pace
- 3 miles 10 k pace
