Half Marathon Training Time!

As we head into fall, what will be your goal?  Have you ever wanted to compete in your first half marathon or get a PR in your next race? Well Giant Strides is here to help you achieve your goals. Racing season is upon us, and the Fiesta Bowl/Runner’s Den is the next race we will be competing in. Although the race is December 15th, training will begin last week in September.

If you are interested I offer racing plans for the inexperienced runner all the way to the experienced.  For just $150 you will receive a 12 week training plan as well as weekly long runs on Saturday with the group at various locations. If you already have an idea of a plan you are more than welcome to come join us on long runs for just $5.00 a run, all group runs will begin the first weekend in October. Please let me know if you are interested in joining our group.

As always, Giant Strides offers classes on Monday Wednesday, and Friday from 5:45-6:45 AM at Windgate Ranch and  9:00-10:00 AM at Windgate Ranch.  I also offer a 5:45-7:00 AM class on Tuesday and Thursday at Desert Willow Park in Cave Creek.  I would love to see you out there!  The classes are structured to focus on specific body parts during each workout.  They are designed for total body conditioning and include strength and body toning exercises using resistance bands, jump ropes, and medicine balls.
