Generally, training for a marathon is not the best thing for your mile time, nor is getting older! Cathrine Wolden doesn’t seem to care for how things generally work.
At this year’s NYRR 5th Ave Mile she kept her PR streak alive placing second in her age group finish (40-44) and 9th female overall in 5:09! [Results] Last year she ran 5:17 and the year before 5:19. An amazing string of improvements for someone whose training has been focused on the marathon!
Cathrine works with Run SMART coach Alicia Shay, who apparently know how to consistently get faster for all distances at the same time! 😉
