Two ways to boost your ING New York City Marathon training


These two totally different training programs may help you PR on November 4.

It may not quite feel like fall yet, but for runners, the New York City marathon is rapidly approaching.

And if your personal coach (or your training diary) just isn’t cutting it right now, there are lots of different ways to amp up your training in advance of race day—some more unexpected than others.

Here are two totally different training programs happening soon that may help you PR on November 4:

The Sports Center at Chelsea Piers’ 10 Weeks to a Faster Marathon
August 30—November 1

This marathon prep program includes weekly runs on the Sports Center’s sweet indoor track, individual lactate threshold tests to determine ideal training zones for pace and heart rate, and weekend group runs in Central Park. Plus, if you’re not already a member, you’ll get access to the Center’s expansive facilities on the day the class meets (Thursday) allowing you to cross train for strength and injury prevention. Or hey, soothe achy muscles with poolside lounging and swimming. $525–$595, www.chelseapiers.com

Lauren Imparato
A yoga class at I.AM.YOU’s gorgeous studio might also calm your race day fears.

I.AM.YOU Yoga’s Runners Series
September 13, October 11, and November 15

Lauren Imparato brought her super-athletic approach to yoga to competitors at the Olympics, and now she wants to share it with you. The series of three workshops is designed to help you with tight muscles and overworked ligaments and complement your training needs. So you’ll be balanced and limber on the big day. “Over the past three years, 76 percent of participants in I.AM.YOU.’s Runners classes have PRed, injury free,” Imparato says. (All runners and athletes are welcome, not just registered marathon participants.) $45 single class, $125 for series, www.iamyoustudio.com
