My name is Ian Torchia and I am a professional cross-country skier based out of Stratton Mountain, Vermont, training and racing towards my goal of the 2022 Olympics. In my first blog with PNG, I went into the basics of marathon training and terminology related to the plan we will execute in pursuit of a half-marathon race. One of the key workouts, aka the “bread and butter” of the training plan will be a threshold session that will help improve our efficiency running at half marathon pace. This session should be incorporated after an easy day of medium distance low intensity running or cross-training. The workout runs as follows:
This workout should be repeated most weeks and can be modified to fit energy levels with either 20-30 minutes of threshold running if feeling tired or up to 1 hour of harder running if feeling good.
