We’ve had another successful season of our popular Speed and Strength program, seeing huge gains on the track since the program began in May.  Our runners are already seeing their hard work pay off with faster race times.  One participant had this to say after setting a 5K personal record (PR), on a hilly course:

“So yesterday was the fastest 5k since I started running again in 2015.  My time was 26:22.  I had started running in 2008 and stopped in 2011 due to injuries and other health problems.  Decided to start up again in 2015.  So pretty impressed with my time considering the hills on the course and it was pretty warm especially in the later stages of the race. Thank you Julie and Lisa for another great season!”

Runners are also seeing tangible improvements in their everyday training, thanks to the improved technique and form learned through the Speed and Strength program.  Another participant had this to say:

“I just wanted to thank you for a great program.  I am thinking I’ll incorporate it again next year.  I feel like I’ve gotten a lot out of it.  Just the bits of advice you’ve both given me have been fantastic, and I have been able to add to my routine.  On Saturday, when I was running my first long run in a while, I squeezed my but going up hill and that kicked on my glutes and it was noticeably easier to get up the hill.  I consciously did that on each hill.  The run left me sore, but it was great to see how a little bit of technique could make a big difference. “

We look forward to coaching the Speed and Strength Program again in spring 2019.
