2023 Learn to Run Program - March 11, 2023 to June 3, 2023
PRC is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting registrants to our 2023 Learn to Run Program.
Purpose: To gently guide you the process of being able to walk for 45 minutes to being able to run for 30+ minutes. We will celebrate this accomplishment with a club-based fun run 5K celebration/graduation run at the end of the Program.
Prerequisites: If you are considering joining the LTR Program, please answer these two questions honestly:
Do you have any health conditions which would prevent your doctor from recommending an increase in physical activity? If you are unsure, please consult your Doctor first.
Can you walk 45 minutes at a time without pain, discomfort or shortness of breath? If you cannot do this before starting running, you are at a significantly higher risk of injury. You want to make yourself healthier, not cause harm.
1) Warmup prior to running with dynamic movements
2) Begin each session with a walking interval (~ 5 minutes)
3) Run/Walk Intervals as prescribed on calendar
4) Post "workout" walk (~5 Minutes)
5) Post session static stretching
