You’ve recently finished a training cycle for a race—and you’re not up for racing again soon, but you don’t want to lose all the fitness gains you’ve made.
Or you’re not much for racing, but you really like having a structured plan to follow and teammates with which to train.
Or maybe your motivation is at the bottom of the laundry chute, under piles of dirty socks and towels, and you need accountability, teammates, expert guidance and a plan, stat.
The solution: Jump on a monthly Train Like a Mother program, a comprehensive plan that includes a full month of running workouts, a unique strength session, and new BOSU or loops circuit. Each month has a different theme with a range of running workouts that continue to build both your cardiovascular efficiency and running-specific strength.
For heart rate, we have three variations of the monthly plans:
The DEENA (this plan): best for athletes who primarily run for their workouts
The JENNIFER: best for athletes who run but also do low-intensity cross training (Pilates, yoga, swimming, etc.) regularly 2+ times a week
The LINDSAY: best for athletes who run but also do high-intensity cross training (CrossFit, Orange Theory Fitness, kickboxing, Body Pump, etc.) regularly 3+ times a week
All have the same features, which include:
★PDF of the Training Plan with a month full of workouts
★A unique illustrated strength circuit + a new BOSU or Loops circuit
★Training Peaks integration of the plan, so you get an email daily with your workout
★Private Facebook group to interact with Coach MK and chat with your fellow #motherrunners
★Private Strava club so you can give and grab kudos from your #motherrunner teammates
★All the motivation, inspiration and accountability that comes from having a tribe support, entertain and (occasionally) b*tch with you
HELPFUL DETAILS: This plan runs from March 1-31. On the Deena plan, long runs on the weekend range from 125-165 minutes; weekday runs range from 30-65 minutes.
IMPORTANT: You must have completed a 20-week Heart Rate-Based Race Plan in order to participate in the monthly training plans. If you have not, please consider joining Heart Rate 101 or the AMAZING Half-Marathon plan, both great places to learn to train by heart rate.
