When should I schedule a race?

Only add a race into your plan if you intend on racing! Our programs make adjustments based on the fact that your race effort will be the hardest for the week. Many runners will register for races but use the course to help complete their long run miles. We love that idea, however, if that is your intention, then don't add the race to your plan. Just log in your notes the fun details of the day. For most runners, a  half marathon is perfect to add during marathon training, and a 10K is ideal to add when training for a half marathon.
