TRAIL FITNESS TRAINING PROGRAM
Congratulations to the 38 participants of Trail Fitness 2018! (Here visiting Briones)
It's time for the 2019 edition! We'll start Sunday, March 3 for 8 weeks.
Our goal race is Sunday, April 21, the 10k and the half marathon race Angwin to Anguish
. The half marathon distance is a new Pacific Association ultra series race, the series followed by our LMJS racing team. We might check in at the Woodside 10k race April 7 too.
Improve your strength, form, and agility as you take your running to the trails. Runners of all speeds and experience with the ability to run a 5k will benefit the most from the program.
Working on the ups and downhills; building strength to lift your feet off the ground and giving you confidence to bear the elements in the off season; you'll be prepared for spring running and races. We'll be visiting various trails in the Oakland hills, Tilden and maybe even Castle Park Walnut Creek depending on the level of wetness and creeks!
Running Ability : Please feel comfortable running at least 3 miles before the start of class. Those wanting to run the half marathon race are best to add on more mileage after each session or get a longer run in on Saturday! LMJS will be continuing with Trail Training for the Triple Crown this year with the Tilden Tough Ten even being an RRCA State Championship Race (register early). We'll follow with Skyline 50K (Aug 4) race training through the summer. Why not start building your mileage now?
