NYCRUNS is proud to introduce a new state of the art training program, designed to get you ready for not only your next race, but to help you become the best athlete and runner you can possibly be. Training 360 combines multiple in person and digital components to guide and support you toward your goals.
In designing Training 360, we took a hard look at other running programs available throughout the New York Metropolitan Area as well as modern training programs in a variety of other sports. Our goal was to invent something vibrant and modern that focuses on developing athletes into the best runners they can be for their next race and for the years of running to come.
Training 360 starts with a telephone or Zoom conference call with Head Coach, John Honerkamp (more on him below.) On this call, we'll get a better idea of where you are with your running and where you want to be, as well as a snapshot of your current level of fitness, any cross training you may do, and other factors that influence your training such as nutrition and sleep. We use this introduction to create a personalized monthly training program. Ongoing remote support will be available via email or app.
The in person training component includes 90 minute workouts twice weekly, Tuesday is for Speedwork and Thursday is for Tempo runs. These longer sessions allow enough time for warm-up, stretching, and Q & A.
Sessions are intentionally small (20-25 athletes at most) so that coaches have time to work with all athletes. With sessions scheduled in both the morning and evening in Central Park and in the morning in Prospect Park, you have several options available to you each week allowing you flexibility. Sessions will begin at 6:30 AM and 6:30 PM.
Sessions in Central Park will meet at the Doris Freedman Plaza (5th Avenue & Central Park South) entrance of Central Park. Sessions in Prospect Park meet at the Bartel Prichard entrance. Registered runners may attend any session, but no more than one session of speedwork and tempo each weekly.
All in person sessions include an informal bag check and in most instances, we will provide hydration as well.
Training 360 members will also receive a team singlet and access to an NYCRUNS Training 360 Team Tent on Race Day (NYCRUNS races only) for pre-race and post-race meetup.
John Honerkamp has coached runners of all ages and abilities for over 20 years. His numerous roles have included Assistant Coach at St. John's University, co-founder of the November Project-NYC, running ambassadorships for Lululemon and New Balance, and Senior Manager Of Runner Products & Services at New York Road Runners. More recently, John founded The Run Collective and created the first-ever Runner Safety Awareness Week in an effort to raise awareness and teach runners how to be safer while out running.
