Written Workouts Will Include:

Speed and Tempo Runs: Focused on Speed and Form, these weekday runs will press the pace to develop run efficiencies


EDGE Speed and Tempo Runs will be written this season in time-based formats. This allows for:
- The workout to self-scale to pace level and distance (depending on pace)
- The group will finish/end at the same time (no one is the last one in!)

Recovery Runs: Progressive, aerobic focus on these lighter effort days for active recovery

EDGE gives specific guidance on what ‘easy’ should feel like and includes that prescriptive range in all workouts and pace charts, therefore:
- Maximizing aerobic conditioning 
- Reducing rate of injury 

Long Runs (Paces every: 30s from 6:45-10:45/mile): Not just a Long Run, these days grow in mileage and mix up speeds, terrains and efforts so you can tackle any challenge on race day!

- Mix up speeds, terrains, and efforts to build race day skills 
- Workouts will be written in both distance and time-based formats to scale to pace level 

Strength Sessions (yep that’s right – STRENGTH WORK!): Run-specific strength included!

- Written for 2 X times/week all season long
- Keeping you strong, speedy and injury-free 

*EDGE Group Training Plan will be written by Nike Running Coach and EDGE Owner, Robyn LaLonde and vetted through our EDGE Coaching Consortium.
