The NY Flyers’ Spring & Summer/Fall SpeedPass programs are accessible to runners of all levels, whether you’re training for fitness, to stay connected to the club socially, or a half or full marathon goal this season. 

Practices

Members gather between 6:30-6:40 pm at the Maine Monument in Columbus Circle. Runners will depart from here at 6:40 pm but if you're late we'll always let you know where to meet us in the park. Bag check is available (free) across the street on the second floor of the Time Warner Center at the running store too.

All athletes train with their assigned group (broken down by fitness level) but at individualized paces prescribed on their training calendar. Practices typically finish (around 8 pm) with some strength and mobility exercises. 

Workouts

All participants receive two Quality Sessions per week (e.g. one speed workout and one long run). The first Quality Session is a coached group workout and the second is a suggested workout.

All workouts are published to each participant’s V.O2 calendar, which includes the ability to manage your training on the mobile app, website and/or a PDF copy. V.O2 also syncs with GPS so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits. 

Coaching Support

Participants can email SpeedPass coaches at any time for questions or updates to their workouts.

Mask policy is based on the new CDC guidelines and we encourage safe distance and spacing throughout practices.

  • 18-week training plan based on your training history and goals.
  • Assigned coach to guide/support you throughout the season.

The NY Flyers’ Summer/Fall Training Program is accessible to runners of all levels. Our coaching program prides itself on proper training methodology, great customer service and making practices fun and challenging at the same time! 

Training Plan

All participants will receive a personalized training plan geared towards their season goal(s). The 18-week training plan will start July 6th and end November 2nd. Participants fill out an athlete survey so an MTP coach can review their recent training/racing history, goals, etc. before personalizing their plan. 

Training plans are published to each participant’s V.O2 calendar, which includes the ability to manage your training on the mobile app, website and/or a PDF copy. V.O2 also syncs with GPS so you can easily manage your prescribed workouts and actual splits. Your WTP coach will help manage your training calendar, which will also include recommendations on cross training, strength, mobility exercises and nutrition, etc. 

Coaching Support

Each participant is assigned a “group coach” to guide them through the training program. Participants receive a coaching invite so their assigned coach can manage their training calendar. Coaches leave comments, feedback and are available by email to help motivate and make adjustments to participants’ training along the way.

Practices

Members gather between 6:30-6:45 pm at the Maine Monument in Columbus Circle. Runners will depart from here promptly at 6:45 pm. Bag check is available (free) across the street on the second floor of the Time Warner Center at the Fleet Feet store.

All athletes train with their assigned coach and group (broken down by experience and fitness level) but at individualized paces prescribed in their training plan. Practices typically finish (around 8:00 - 8:30pm) with some strength and mobility exercises (weather permitting).

Mask policy is based on the new CDC guidelines and we encourage safe distance and spacing throughout practices.

Social

TBD. Typically, MTP meets at least once per month for a post-practice social gathering at a nearby bar/restaurant.
