Emma Coburn

March 31, 2014

This Runner’s World article has a few details about Emma Coburn’s training under Mark Wetmore:

After a few months off, she started running in September and was back to 75 to 80 miles per week by fall.


WHO: Emma Coburn, age 23
WHAT: A challenging 15-mile run at a pace based on heart rate. Coburn won’t say what the heart rate is, only that it’s different from the target her training partner, Jenny Simpson, has.
WHY: To maintain her aerobic base.
WHEN: Every Sunday throughout the year, varying only for her racing schedule.
THE DETAILS: For this run, Coburn, along with Simpson, Shalaya Kipp, and now Kara Goucher, will drive north or west of Boulder and do the workout on a dirt road. Some of the roads are fairly flat, but they’re all at 8,000 feet. The run is hard from the beginning. Coburn usually maintains 6:20–6:30 pace throughout.
