Summer 2015 Running & Walking Programs
Starting May 6th
When: Wednesday evenings 5/6 – 7/22/15
Where: Barnstable High School Track, W. Main St, Hyannis, MA.
This session will include the following groups (PLEASE NOTE STARTING TIMES):
Walk/Run – (5:45PM) – This is the class that launched our running program!!! It’s designed to help you make a transition from walker to runner. It begins with a 30-minute workout made up of intervals of 30 seconds of jogging followed by 90 seconds of walking. By week 12, participants will be running 12 minutes and walking just 1 minute. In order to be successful, it is essential that students train regularly throughout the remainder of the week.
Basic Running – (5:45PM) – Make running a more regular part of your life and add variety to your workouts. Sessions consist of light jogging with “accelerations” followed by recovery. It’s suited to runners coming back from injury or extended layoff or who feel Running & Racing is a bit too much. Since there are frequent re-grouping periods during every workout, no one gets too far ahead or behind. Consequently, this group is able to accommodate runners of an extremely wide range of abilities and goals. You can virtually make the workout as hard or as easy as you want. You should be able to jog continuously for at least 30 minutes before joining this group.
Running & Racing – (6:00PM) – The purpose of this groups is to help runners further develop in the sport of running. Participants include marathon runners, triathletes, local road racers along with those who simply enjoy a challenging and fun group workout. Workouts generally take place on the track and are designed to improve lactate threshold, VO2 max, running economy. Individualized attention is available to anyone who asks for it. Note – this group continues into the Fall indefinitely.
