This is the same information I presented at the meeting we had last night and I wanted to make it available to everyone.
Why we're doing this
There are a few reasons why we're doing this. First off, it's important to train for something. Once you actually put in a goal, an end that you're working towards, everything changes; your workouts suddenly mean more, your nutrition means more, your recovery means more, and you get more out of everything.
Second, we want to expose you to different types of training methodologies. The point behind the Development Series is to give our members a chance to train specific areas of their fitness and skill set (endurance, strength, power, gymnastics, etc). Depending on the reaction to these different series, there's the possibility of seeing these specialty classes enter our schedules permanently.
How it works
What to expect
Since we're training for a 5k run, we'll be working on developing specific skills and capacities based on that. During each class, we'll be practicing running drills, mobilizing in order to be more efficient, and running intervals in order to build our capacity and comfort in the time domain we're aiming at. You'll also be given "homework", which will include running drills and mobilization techniques as well as running suggestions to help you work more on your conditioning and comfort.
How to get started
1) Sign up for the Endurance Development Series by putting your name up on the board. There are only 30 spots available.
2) Sign up for the Glendale Downtown Dash.
If you want to run with us at the 5K in March, but don't want to do the entire Development Series, that's totally cool and you're all invited to register and join us.
