The Run Tampa Coaching Program is a 12-week, once weekly workout. Two 12-week sessions each year, one in the fall, starting in September and one in the winter/spring starting in January. You can join the program at any time. Runners purchase a package of six or twelve workouts. That way you only pay for the workouts you attend. Unused workouts carry over to the next session.
Location: Al Lopez Park, 4810 Himes Avenue; We meet at the end of the parking lot (under the tree next to the yellow posts) just south of the Cordelia Hunt Rec Center.
Day/Time: Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
Dates: 12-Workout Session. Current session ends December 22nd. Winter session begins January 11th. No training Nov 23rd. Runners may start the program at any time. Please don’t feel you need to wait for the next session. People join all the time. Every workout is different, and I constantly review form/cadence, etc.
Description: Each workout lasts about an hour. Mix of different workouts, emphasis on running form and injury prevention. Drills, strengthening exercises, balance exercises, and intervals of different distances and with different purposes. Every workout begins with an easy jog to warm-up. You’ll need a watch for some workouts, and other times the workout will be entirely effort-based. You don’t ever compete with each other.
This does not include coaching outside of the track workout, but I will guide all participants in how to spend the rest of the week and how to find a good training schedule and customize as needed.
1. Speed work for people who are already in good condition and are doing 20 miles per week or more.
2. Endurance-building for people returning to running after time off or newer runners who’re more focused on building endurance than getting faster.
3. Beginner for people just working up to their first 5k. Everything this group does is walk/run. Lot of focus on form, cadence, drills, and strengthening and stretching to prepare the body for running and prevent injury.
