This 14 week program is designed to help runners reach their goals by focusing on improving mobility, as well as increasing strength and endurance.
Tuesday evening track workouts focus on a gradual development of speed over longer time intervals. Runners new to these “effort” workouts need not feel intimidated. Embrace them! And experienced runners will welcome the minutes these workout will shave off their finish times. Some say these interval speed workouts are the best kept secret in the world of running.
Strength training is paramount to running economy and longevity. The repetitive nature of running can cause wear and tear on the body. It is through strengthening of both the primary muscles of running along with the secondary supportive muscle of the core and glutes that we build stamina. With the primary and secondary muscles working in synergy, running economy and endurance improve and the chance of injury decreases.
