This class is recommended for runners who have been running for at least 6 months and want to improve their running. In each session, we will do dynamic warm-up drills, a workout and stretching with direction from a variety of LMJS race team members.
The emphasis for this class will be on learning to run faster by improving form and running economy - both critical aspects of racing. In each class, you will participate in a track workout designed to work on these elements, with a brief discussion of how these fit into a training program.
In class, you will learn about the different types of workouts and their benefits related to race distances. You will also hear brief discussion of topics vital to running and racing such as nutrition, tapering, and race day tips.
We've included a 5K race for you to see your improvement over the session.
What's special about our class
For each workout, runners are divided into groups by pace which are led by an experienced pace group leader. We can accommodate all paces with some notice. Please sign up early so we can better fit your needs!
