Welcome to episode 74 of the Final Surge Podcast where we welcome back Hoka NAZ Elite Coach Ben Rosario who talks about what he has planned for the Boston Marathon. Ben has two elite runners, Kellyn Taylor and Scott Smith who will be competing in Boston. We are just over 10-weeks out from Boston and Ben is offering three new training plans that are specific to the Boston Marathon. These three plans are tailored to the level of runner you are. In addition to the training plans Ben will have a weekly blog post which talks about exactly how to execute the training plans for the upcoming week. Make sure you check out his plans on FinalSurge.com/10weekstoboston and follow along with his professional athletes as they prepare for the unique course that is Boston.
You have two runners joining the great American field at the 2018 Boston Marathon, want to talk about them?
With Boston you never know what the weather will be like, could be 40 and raining or 75 and sunny, but if the weather is not a factor Boston can be a fast course so is the intention to run a PR at Boston?
If you look at the field, especially the women's side, it is an incredibly deep field. Was the goal for Kellyn to always run Boston?
You make your logs available for all your athletes. But for Boston, you are going a step further with 10-weeks To Boston.
You have other plans available for the marathon too, how do these differ from those plans?
Can you tell us about the blogging you have planned for these 10 weeks?
You have 10 weeks before Boston, what do some of the staple workouts look like during that time?
You have a document you include with your plans that talk about your terminology. Can you explain how you use the CV workouts in your plan?
When you get to your long runs are most of them steady or are you working quality into your long runs?
There is a lot of specific work to Boston so runners who have never run Boston can be prepared. This weekly blog is going to be able to help a lot of athletes. We want to get on again before Boston to talk about this training some more.
