Half Marathon Program

Week 8 | Half Day 50

Core Work & Restoration Training

It’s Race Week!

Follow these tips to make sure you have a successful final week of the program and arrive like the finely tuned machine you’ve become for a successful race day!

A lot of new looks are coming your way for this month’s core work and restoration training along with a continuation of the work we’ve already started. Remember, you can always go back to the strength days in previous weeks if you need a refresher or if you’re not yet ready for these new challenges.

Remember it’s easy to go through the motions or to skip this day altogether. But trust us, today’s where you lay the foundation for a strong connected body that can handle the running and racing in the week ahead! Breathe, breathe, breathe and have fun with some new moves!
