BlacklistLA, Your LA Marathon Training Partner
There is nothing quite like running the Los Angeles Marathon. Starting off in Echo Park, and finishing ocean side in Santa Monica, and all the neighborhoods (DTLA, Hollywood, Beverly Hills) in between, the word EPIC is an understatement. The race might just be the best tour to take around our great city.
So, you’ve decided to embark on the journey but don’t know where to start. How are you going to train? Who are you going to train with? Luckily, we’ve got you covered.
We are pleased to announce BlacklistLA has partnered with Conqur Endurance Group to be an official training partner for the 2018 Los Angeles Marathon!
This means that by signing up for our LA Marathon training program, you will be enrolled in a 16-week plan taking you from start to finish with an experienced team of runners to help guide you along the way. Did we mention it’s free?
Every week you can expect an email detailing the week’s workouts, cross training and recovery days. The workouts covered in our plan will include Recovery, Speed, as well as Long Distance runs. As a group, we will meet 3 times weekly. Terms like fartlek, interval, progressive, hill repeats, and the such will become part of your running vernacular. We will also cover the most effective ways to stretch, cross train, and follow proper nutrition (#NoDriveThrus).
Rain or shine, we got you. Need somewhere to run 20 miles, we got you. During the 16 weeks of training, we will never miss a scheduled run. For long distances, we will select an uninterrupted route (think Griffith Park, LA River, or Ballona Bike Path), free from street signs or lights. In fact, all the routes will be preloaded on our Strava account for reviewing prior to our meetups.
Plus, in the month before training begins, feel free to join BlacklistLA as we will work on conditioning for speed and long distance workouts. This will prep your body for the wear-and-tear of training. We want you to be ready to go and plan on giving you all the tools necessary for that PR. An orientation will be announced at a later date.
In the past, LA Marathon training, as part of our “Project 4242” program has guided hundreds of runners past the finish line to new heights, with its emphasis on discipline and community. Through our partnership with Conqur, we are excited to welcome a new generation of runners from all over the Los Angeles area. Whether it’s first or your fifteenth, our goal is for the 2018 LA Marathon will be your best!
