Winter Evening Interval Program Details


OVERVIEW The Winter Interval Training Program is designed for runners of all levels who are looking for a group atmosphere and a coach's guidance as they continue to work on their speed and endurance, as well as running mechanics and technique.

Whether you're a new runner, a previous Running 101 or 201 participant, a marathoner recovering from your fall effort, or training for a spring race, this program will give you some structure and motivation during the winter months and help prepare you for your springtime goals. Coaches will challenge the most experienced runners, but novices also can get started running right by taking this class.

The program is track-based and currently offered in Arlington, Burke, DC, and Reston. When the track is not avaiable due to HS sports or other conflicts, we will offer an off-track workout.We are also hoping to offer a Vienna program, pending track availabillty — Vienna details will be posted as soon as we (hopefully) secure track space.

Each week will include workouts appropriate to improve your base and build your endurance, focusing on improving your lactate tolerance and aerobic capacity. For those training with our Distance Training or Cherry Blossom/Spring Mid-Distance Training program there will also be additional volume and/or intensity focused on building your strength for those longer races. When weather permits, coaches will include some true “speed” from time to time as well.


The program is planned for 12/12/17 through 3/15/18, conditions permitting. There will be no session the week between Christmas and New Year’s.


The program cost for the Winter Evening Interval Program is $99 for the session. This cost includes up to twelve weekly coached workout sessions, and participant benefits including a commemorative program t-shirt and other giveaways and social activities.
