Central Coast Half Marathon & 10k Training Program Week 12

Central Coast Half Marathon & 10k Training Program Week 12

Email Each Week 

Race week is upon us.  Well done on completing the previous 11 weeks of training and thank you for allowing me to be a part of the journey in your preparation and training.  Everyone has come so far since the beginning of the program. You should now feel prepared and ready to run on Sunday.  

If I don’t see you at the track session at Mingara Athletics Track on Wed to tell you in person, I’d like to wish you a great run. I hope you achieve your 10k or Half Marathon goal.  Remember to have fun and enjoy the run. For those coming to Mingara Athletics Track, it will be a shorter session and a chance to celebrate the last one leading into the race.

Good luck and I hope to see everyone after the run. I’d love to meet you and hear how you went.
