For the past few years New York became the city where me and autumn meets each other. In the very first week of November that city holds the most famous marathon in the world - the New York Marathon that attracts more than 60 000 participants. This year I start my training plan for the New York Marathon two months earlier than usual. In average, training for any marathon takes about 4 months but this year I've decided to expand my training schedule. My goal for this autumn is 2 hours 52 minutes (at least as my training plan predicts). For the next six months I'm gonna run about 2 000 km, demolish a few pairs of sneakers and lose a few pounds of my own weight. Hopefully my new personal best will be installed in November. The following plan describes my next few workouts.
