This weekend is our next benchmark — 25K… that’s 15.5 miles! That sounds like a long way, but in reality it’s only an 18% increase over our last benchmark of 13.1 miles. So no biggie, right? Remember it’s key to practice all your ‘plans!’
PRC will not be able to attend Portland Fit this Saturday, so if you’ve come to depend on them for last minute Body Glide or a water bottle holder, please prepare ahead! Thanks for all you do, PRC!
The next benchmark on our schedule is the 25K on July 12. This 15.5 miler will start/end at our Zidell homebase. Stay tuned for more details including start times, but in the meantime we wanted to discuss a few options.
This week we debut a new speed training workout — The Ladder. How does one do the ladder? First you go up, then you go down…
Want to do another half marathon? Consider Green Coach Paula’s newest race: the Bridge of the Goddesses. Be a part of this inaugural event next September!
This time of year our number one question is: “What now?” The answer depends on what you want to do next, but it basically comes down to four answers. Which one is right for you?
Portland Fit was once again proud to serve as the Mile 1 and Mile 12 aid station at the Helvetia Half Marathon. It’s a great place to see all our friends after the start and again just before the finish. But we couldn’t do it without a terrific team of volunteers.
Congratulations to all our members that participated in the Helvetia Half Marathon last weekend. It was a glorious day to celebrate all our hard work over the last few months. A half marathon is quite an accomplishment!
