These are Run and Run/Walk Training Programs:
The Half Marathon Training Programs are 18 week AND 12 week programs that meet once a week designed to prepare runners for their first ever endurance event or to help seasoned runners meet a new performance goal. These programs will educate on endurance training principles, hydration and nutrition techniques, body awareness, pacing and running autonomy.
The Programs meet on Tuesday Evenings at 6:30 PM and Saturday mornings at 6 AM. The workouts will last about an hour to up to three hours as we increase mileage throughout the season. In addition to the workouts there are educational clinics, motivational speakers, newsletters keeping you up to date and expert coaching/mentoring to help inspire and motivate you on this training journey.
The Fall 2017 session of the 18 Week Half Marathon Training Program starts on November 4, 2017. The 12 Week Half Marathon Program starts on December 16, 2017,They both go until March 3, 2018. The Half Marathon sessions will be training for a race on March 5, 2018, the Annual Marathon of the Treasure Coast Half Marathon. Race registration is not included in the Training Program Fee.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q: Do I have to be running the same goal race as the program is designed for?
A: No, you are more than welcome to run ANY race and still train with us! Just make sure that you get with the coach beforehand and talk about your dates and tapering needs.
Q: I am a very slow runner. Is this still the right program for me?
A: Absolutely. We want to inspire and educate runners of all levels, regardless of pace! We will always have trainees and Mentors to run alongside you, so you need not worry about being alone on the runs. Just make sure you are meeting the mileage requirements as posted on the registration page before you sign up.
Q: If I miss workouts, or I have to consistently miss one of the days of our weekly meetings does that mean I cannot be involved in the program?
A: Of course you can still be involved! We would love to have every trainee at every run, but understand that life and obligations may get in the way. Just make sure that you are completing your training runs independently so you don’t fall behind on your progress! Also, let your coach know when you are expected to miss so we don’t worry about you!
Q: What if I have to miss the informational meeting?
A: No big deal! The informational meeting is not mandatory. Just come to the first workout and we can get you up to speed then. Or e-mail the Training Program Coordinator what day you are planning to attend and she can give you a run-down, send you the informational handout via e-mail and walk you through registration.
Q: Can I come to the first workout before deciding to register?
A: Of course! We are confident after you see what the programs are all about that you will want to get involved!
Q: What does the training schedule look like?
A: We will be starting at smaller mileages and building over the course of the program. It will never change suddenly or dramatically and you will always be well prepared for any increase distance.
Q: Where do we meet?
A: Fleet Feet Stuart
