Are you ready to PR?
Do you need to build endurance?
Are you stuck on a running plateau?
Do you keep getting injured?
Well, you’ve landed in the right place. In my program, you’ll work on running form, cadence, balance, strengthening the right muscles and training movement to improve running efficiency and prevent injury. Add that to speed work geared to your goals.
Are you a beginner, working to your first 5k or your first 5k of non-stop running? Then I have a class for you, too.
Mine is a comprehensive program that addresses every element of your training. To learn my philosophy, listen to my podcasts; I’ve got 125 Mojo for Running and 45 Beginner Runner Village episodes, which make a great backup to my ‘in person’ training.
I hold two 12-week coaching sessions per year, one starting in September and a second starting in January. 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: Tuesdays (experienced runners) and Thursdays (beginners), 6:30 p.m.
Dates: Fall session starts the Tuesday after Labor Day; the winter session starts the Tuesday after New Year’s. Next session begins Tuesday, January 8th and Thursday, January 10th.
Description: Each workout lasts about an hour. Emphasis on running form, injury prevention and how to train. Drills, strengthening exercises, balance exercises, and intervals of different distances with different purposes. Every workout begins with a 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/schedules outside of the track workout, but I guide all participants in how to spend the rest of the week and how to find a good training schedule and customize it as needed.
1. Speed Group: Tuesday nights, for people who are already in good condition, are doing 25 miles per week or more, and looking for high intensity.
2. Endurance Group: Tuesday nights, for people more focused on building endurance than getting faster or runners training to improve their half or full but who are not wanting a workout as intense as that of the speed group.
3. Beginner: Thursday nights, for people just working up to their first 5k or for people who’ve done a few 5k’s but don’t yet have the endurance to run that distance non-stop, or for people returning to running after time off. Within are many levels from those working up to running their first quarter mile on up to those who can run a mile but cannot yet string three miles together. Focus on form, cadence, drills, and strengthening and stretching, preventing injury.
