Running has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. One of my favorite parts of being a Certified Personal Trainer is helping people to learn that running can actually be really fun. Because running is both efficient and social, it’s a great component for an exercise program for busy people. I will be hosting my 3rd annual four-week running clinic on Wednesday evenings from 6-7pm, starting September 15th. This free clinic will be held at the pavilion in Perry Park, adjacent to Highland Park Elementary, 4900 Fairview Drive, Austin, TX 78731. Men, women, and teenagers are welcome to attend.
Each clinic will consist of warm-up and cool-down jogs with agility drills and strength or speed conditioning exercises. Each week will focus on a different aspect of running training: the basics of form and staying injury-free, hill training, interval training, and pace running. At the conclusion of each week’s workout, there will be directed stretching and time for questions and answers. The clinic is open to all ability levels, from joggers to seasoned runners. I promise that workouts can be modified to be made suitable for a wide range of participants.
The timing of the clinic serves as a great base for those who want to run the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Sunday, November 7th. As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, I am motivated to help find a cure for this disease. Join other Austinites starting on September 15th to demonstrate that running builds both good health and strong communities.
