Workouts

Workouts are coached from start to finish with personal attention given to each athlete. The program design follows a periodized training schedule with Base in the Winter, Build in the Spring, Race in the Summer, and Maintenance in the Fall. Running efficiency is emphasized through education, practice of drills, and feedback from the coaches. The main set of the workout is typically between 3-4 miles.
