Train with Efficiency • Train with Strength • Train with Purpose
Our 14 week marathon and half marathon training program is perfect for runners of every level. The plans are 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 experience 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 synergistically running economy and endurance improve and the chance of injury decreases.
Training for this 14 week program kicks off Tuesday July 9th 7pm at Connecticut Sports and Fitness with an open house and panel discussion on what to expect during your training.
