Training

We use a schedule that is designed to increase evenly and progressively from start to finish. We break it up into three 4-week training phases for a typical training program, each with very specific training focuses:

  • Weeks 1-3: Introduction - in these weeks we introduce you to base pace, various workout types, and common themes in running
  • Weeks 4-6: Build & Strength - these weeks we will begin to increase weekly mileage, add strength and flexibility training, and focus on consistency 
  • Weeks 7-9: Sharpen & Lengthen - in this phase, we get confident with our work and perfect what we've done previously
  • Weeks 10-Race Week: Recover & Race Prep - the last few weeks of training are dedicated to rest, race planning and staying loose

*Our programs are progressive in nature, with each week building upon the last - slow, steady and consistent!

**Weekday meetups consist of different types of workouts (intervals, hills, fartlek, tempo, plyometrics, and good form running)

 

***Weekends are for long runs and recovery! We start out with a relatively short distance and slowly but surely build to our goal distance and pace!

 

Exclusive Discounts and Prizes

Throughout the program you'll have access to in-store discounts on all the essentials you'll need to maximize your training.  You'll also earn an exclusive training program technical t-shirt, and we'll have some other special prizes and giveaways throughout the season too!
