January 3rd | MTP Winter/Spring ’24

January 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

What's Winter for? Training for Spring of course!

Join us for our Winter/Spring 2024 Marathon Training Program! The 16 sessions occur each Wednesday evening, January 3rd - April 17th. The program is limited to 50 runners and typically sells out quickly.

What: NY Flyers' Winter/Spring Marathon Training Program (MTP), led by Head Coach Amy Sitar and Coach Jim Purvis, is designed to help members prepare for their spring goal races.

  • 16 coached practices.
  • 16-week training plan based on your training history and goals.
  • Assigned group coach to guide/support you throughout the season.
  • Coaching support via email and on V.O2.

The NY Flyers’ Winter/Spring Training Program is available to runners of all levels. Our coaching program prides itself on proper training methodology, great customer service and making practices fun and challenging at the same time! 

Training Plan: All participants will receive a personalized training plan geared towards their season goal(s). The 16-week training plan will start January 3rd and ends April 17th. Participants fill out an athlete survey so an MTP coach can review their recent training/racing history, goals, etc. before personalizing their plan.
Training plans are published to each participant’s V.O2 calendar, which includes the ability to manage your training on the mobile app, website and/or a PDF copy. V.O2 also syncs with GPS so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits. Your MTP coach will help manage your training calendar, which will also include recommendations on cross training, strength, mobility exercises and nutrition, etc. 

Coaching Support: Each participant is assigned a “group coach” to guide them through the training program. Participants receive a coaching invite so their assigned coach can manage their training calendar. Coaches leave comments, feedback and are available by email to help motivate and make adjustments to participants’ training along the way.

Practices: Members gather between 6:30-6:40 pm at the Maine Monument at Columbus Circle. Runners will depart from there to the park promptly at 6:40 pm. Bag check is available on the second floor of the Time Warner Center at the Fleet Feet store.

All athletes train with their assigned coach and group (broken down by experience and fitness level) but at individualized paces prescribed in their training plan. Practices typically finish 7:45-8:00 pm with some mobility exercises (weather permitting).

Socials: TBD. Typically, we meet at least once per month for a post-practice organized social gathering at a nearby bar/restaurant.

When: First Practice is Wednesday, January 3rd, 2024

Where: Central Park (Columbus Circle) every Wednesday evening
