Training Program

There was a comment left on our last post, I reposted it here for everybody to see. Thanks, it made it easy for me since I didn't have all of the information. Hope to see a lot of people there, I hope to make it as often as possible. I need plenty of motivation!

There's a Spring Into Training Program starting on Tuesday, February 9th at 5:30 p.m. on the 4th floor of Bluffton Regional Medical Center designed to address the very topic you posed in your post - training in the winter, getting motivated, cross training, increasing distance and pace safely, preparing for the Indy Mini and other races. The $20 program includes free access to the YMCA one day each week, discount at 3 Rivers Running Company, presentation by a Registered Dietitian, discussion with a physical therapist about training aches and pains, weekly motivational emails, various pace groups, and printed training schedule. For more info, email or talk with Mac. Registration is required for the 12-week program. The program is co-sponosred by ORR, Bluffton Regional Medical Center, and the Wells County YMCA.

Running Outside?

So, with this new snow accumulation and another round of very frigid temperatures, is anyone still running outside? If you are, good for you as long as you're being smart and careful. If you're not, oh well, there's always time to relax, cross train, use a treadmill, etc. It seems weird to start training for the Indy Mini again, time goes way too fast! I'm sure at the meeting on Monday we will be talking about setting a date for the 5/10 mile training run. See you then.
