Fall/Winter Base Camp

OVERVIEW

Whether you are just completing a fall race goal, setting your sights on the spring, or just want to get started and stay motivated even when the weather is less than inspiring, the new Fall/Winter Base Camp will be a great fit. Designed with beginners and experienced runners in mind, you can recover from that fall race, begin building a base so you’re ready to train for that spring endurance goal (check out our Winter/Spring Distance Training Program!), or just get ready for the holiday season.

 DETAILS 

1 PROGRAM DETAILS

A typical session may focus on endurance, improving speed through intervals targeting different running forms and training zones/energy systems, and running technique.  Weekends will be more focused on endurance with weekdays including greater speed options.  Each location will have one session focused primarily on run technique/form as well. (If you’ve participated in a Begin/Base/Build program before, the structure will be similar.)

2 PROGRAM DURATION

The program is designed as a bridge between other programs finishing in October, and our Distance Training, Begin/Base/Build, and Cherry Blossom/Spring Mid-Distance Training Programs which begin in January.  It kicks off the weekend of 11/9 and continues through the New Year, wrapping the weekend of 1/2/16.
