The Runners' Den clinic is based on safety and having a good time running with others. The clinic provides all levels of runners a place to meet and go for a speed type workout in one of many pace groups available each Tuesday night. The workouts are designed for those training for 5km fun runs all the way up to marathons 42.2km (some may also call this a fun run). There are two walk/run groups that follow a scheduled program. There is a group for everyone...Come and RUN at the DEN!

 

 

WORKOUT DESCRIPTIONS


FITNESS WALK:
This group follows a program designed for those who have been doing up to 1 hr of vigorous walking. The group does some of the local hills incorporated into the workouts. This group meets on Tuesday evenings only.

OTHER PACE GROUPS:
The other groups will follow the workout schedule listed on the front and be taken through the workouts by group leaders.

HILLS:
Hills prepare the muscles for faster running without going anaerobic. Hills strengthen the main running muscles and help lead us to becoming more efficient runners.

INTERVALS:
Interval training breaks up race type efforts into segments or repetitions. This workout is done by time or distance in order to be able to measure improvements and teaches even pacing.

PYRAMIDS:
Pyramids are a form of intervals that work on maintaining form and speed throughout the workout. Workout is based on time or distance.
