Group Tempo Run Thurs Night, Saturday Long Run, and Training Advice for Humid weather

Marathon Training is in full swing and I hope to see you Thursday Night 5:30pm at the Champion Running Group workout for a 35 minute tempo run at Marathon goal pace, followed by an 8 min cool-down jog. This is a staple workout for marathon training and will give you confidence moving forward. I will be behind the tennis courts (mountainside/diamond) at Ala Moana Beach Park, where we will have a brief inspirational talk and dynamic warm-up prior to the workout! Great racing everyone who did Gunstock Half Marathon this past Saturday, you guys rocked and all won your age groups! Way to represent! How are everyone’s long runs coming along in prep for the marathon? Polina, Tommy, and I did a hard 19 mile long run last Saturday and plan on doing a 21 mile long run this Saturday. We usually meet at the Kapiolani Park bathrooms at around 5:50am and go towards Hawaii Kai. Anybody is welcome to meet up and start with us. Bring plenty of water and gel packs for fuel along the way. We usually start out easy the first 1.5 miles and then really pick up the pace, so you don’t have to stay with us. Just meeting people for motivation on Saturday morning is great! Training advice: with this abnormally hot and humid weather, drink more liquids with electrolytes and more often. Your body has to work harder to regulate your body temperature and thus your sweat output and risk for dehydration and heat exhaustion increases. Aloha, Dr. Nate
