MARATHON TRAINING 2022

 

The 2022 Honolulu Marathon Training will prepare intermediate and racer-level athletes for the 50th Honolulu Marathon on December 11, 2022.  The program will also build advanced racer skills and habits, including five marathon abilities: stamina, power, tempo, speed, and endurance (see “15 things you’ll learn” below). 

The Training will be a hybrid of three sorts of workouts:

    1. Small-Group In-person Workouts in pace groups according to your ability, fast-to-slow. The team’s pace is your slow/comfortable pace; nobody gets left behind.
        • Eighteen In-person weekend runs, starting the week of August 7, 2022 until the marathon on Sunday, December 11.
        • Brian Clarke directs each in-person workout at an Oahu Island location.
    1. Small-Group In-person Conference-call (CC) workouts. Use a Bluetooth enabled cell phone to dial into an audio-only workout with a facilitator and others.
          • Groups decide on a convenient meeting place to do the (70-90 minute) evening workout while they listen in on the facilitator’s instructions.
          • Athletes train and learn together, as some of each workout is spent discussing how to achieve your performance goals.  You become part of a friendly support team. 
    1. Individual Conference-call (CC) workouts. Save time by not having to meet a group.  Train alone, starting from a convenient location (such as your home), while listening to the facilitator and your friends who are also on the call. 

All workouts employ a very-slow-to-slow warm-up, with limbering-up exercises, before continuing at a slow pace or starting relaxed hills or comfortable tempo intervals.

 

Workout Time Slots:

      • Monday and Wednesday 5:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
      • Saturday, 6:30 a.m. to approximately 9:30 a.m.
