Running Clinic – Think and Grow Faster!

Canceled 

Thursday, May 17th at 5:45pm
With Running Coach, Art Ives
In many ways the sport of distance running is beautifully simple, all you do is lace up your shoes and head out the door. But even though endurance sports provide an opening to greater health, happiness and confidence, there’s no easy way of running. Sometimes it hurts! There certainly are many ways to make it easier however. Knowledge, training, and coaching can dramatically increase your efficiency and enjoyment while reducing the risk of injury and burnout.
This talk will speak to those who want to improve their health and speed in order to run 5K,10K or move up to 1/2 marathon distance. As well as those who couldn’t care less about racing, who simply want to fall in love with running more and discover a new direction for themselves.
 
Answers:
  • How much should I train?
  • How long is long enough, how fast is fast enough?
  • What are the best times to do each workout?
  • Who are the most important people to work with?
  • What are the most important things to do at all times?

About Art Ives:

Art has either coached or competed at every running distance from 100 meters to 100 miles. His love of running is matched only by his love of helping other runners surpass their personal goals.
