I know it's hard to think about with the frost-bitten temperatures outside but our running groups for spring training are forming!
Our first group in the fall was such a fun time! We trained from August through October and November for various races like the Tulsa Run and the Route 66 Half Marathon. We had first time runners, runners increasing their distances and runners improving their times. Every single person who trained with us had a major accomplishment: Chris with a first place age group, Mary with a course PR, Phoebe with a longest distance ever, Susan with a course PR (and the most fun in a race), Jennifer with most fun she's had running and Catharine with age group placements and distance PRs. Teresa and I had so much fun cheering everyone on, we can't wait to start this spring group.
Here are the training options to choose from:
Newbie Runner: This is for anyone who is trying to move from walking to running. We will target the St. Patrick's Day 5k on March 11. If this date doesn't work for you or you want to continue racing into the spring, there are many more spring 5ks. Cost: $25 per month (minimum 2 months).
Endurance Runner: This option is for those of you looking to move up from a 5k to a 10k or Half Marathon. We will focus mostly on improving mileage and endurance ability in your running. Target runs include the Golden Driller, Oklahoma City Half Marathon and/or Garmin Half in Olathe, KS. All are in April. Cost: $25 per month (minimum 3 months).
Speed Runner: This final option is for any runner looking to get faster at a particular distance. It will include more specific workouts throughout the week. You can choose 5k, 10k or half marathon distances and target any of the races above. Cost: $35 per month (minimum 3 months).
- Every plan will include weekly emails with your specific running instructions for the week. Sprenkel will check in and track your progress through the RunKeeper app.
- Suggestions for strength training, fueling, hydrating and injury preventing throughout the training cycle.
- Race day support, access to studio (if applicable) and encouragement.
- Weekend group run
Starting January 14, the Saturday run will be open to the community. Runners are welcome to come run as a group on Saturday, or run around your home following the coaching instructions. We will run at 8am until the runs become too long to finish before 9, or it gets too hot.
We are so excited to coach you, listen to your complaints, celebrate your success and CHEER you on to the finish! Email Sprenkel to sign up or if you have any questions: email@example.com
