The NY Flyers’ Winter/Spring Training Program is accessible to runners of all levels. This upcoming season is open to anyone who has a goal marathon or half marathon race this Fall (2023). Our coaching program prides itself on proper training methodology, great customer service and making practices fun and challenging at the same time!
All participants receive a personalized training plan geared towards their season goal(s). Most commonly, participants train for NYC, Chicago, Berlin, Wineglass, Philly, and more! The 18-week training plan starts July 1st/2nd and ends November 5th. 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 (Garmin, Coros, Strava and Apple Watch) so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits. Your MTP group coach will help manage your training calendar, which will also include recommendations on cross training, strength, mobility exercises and nutrition, etc.
Each participant is assigned a group coach (see coaching staff below) to guide them through the training program. Participants receive a coaching invite so their assigned coach can manage their training calendar on V.O2. Coaches leave comments, feedback and are available by email to help motivate and make adjustments to participants’ training along the way.
First practice is Wednesday, July 5th. Members gather between 6:30-6:40 pm at the Maine Monument in 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 will finish (around 7:45pm) with mobility exercises (weather permitting).
You gotta have a little fun along the way too! MTP meets once per month for a post-practice social gathering at a nearby bar/restaurant. Join us! 🍻
