***This is the first run of the series. Look for Pip Running signs to the parking lot.***

“PR” stands for Personal Record. This program is for all abilities, novice to seasoned veteran, and caters to those that want become faster runners. By default, the program caters to anyone that wants to become a better runner, including those just starting out so don’t be shy if you are a beginner. 

Highlights of the Program:

Complete Written 24 Week Training Program that can be modified to fit into most people’s busy schedules.  The training includes specific hill and interval phases. Your fitness will improve regardless of the hill and interval phases but the hill exercises increase your leg strength and improve your range of motion greatly reducing the chance of injury all of which enhance the interval phase. The differences can be significant if you go into the intervals with stronger legs. The intervals are a balance of shorter leg speed workouts and longer, more sustained, up-tempo workouts.  Note: The training program calls for 4 days per week with options for a 5th and 6th day per week.

Individual Assessments.  The assessments cover your stride, form, and shoe needs (biomechanics). This can be videotaped or not. We also cover anything else that matters to you. Your goals, injury concerns, scheduling challenges, and any questions you might have. 

2 Supported Runs per Week. We meet every Thursday evening and Sunday morning.  The locations vary but you will get a mix of roads & trails and flat and varied terrain.   

Education, Information and Support Covering Everything That Matters, including: Proper Footwear, Injury Prevention, Hydration and Fueling, Tapering, How to Prevent Blisters and Chaffing, the Commons Mistakes and How to Avoid Them, Pacing, Recovery, etc.

2 Coaches: Coach Susan and Coach Dave will be by your side during training and when we're not with you in person we'll be available almost anytime you need us through text and/or email.
