GRIT Fall Session

THE FALL SESSION HAS BEGUN!

With race season around the corner, the focus on the Fall session will complement your steady runs with time and distance based pacing manipulations. We will still use some overloading techniques, such as sandbags, hills and stairs, but the primary focus will be getting you in peak race condition.The Fall session is for anyone who:

  • Wants to compliment their race training with interval training
  • Improve their anaerobic and aerobic energy systems
  • Enjoys running focused workouts
  • Learn how to control your pacing

Tuesdays 
Tuesdays will blend overload training and time-based intervals. The purpose of these workouts is to help runners develop a stronger sense of their pacing through feel. The aim is to promote consistency and performance through the feedback that your body provides you.

Thursdays
The track provides the opportunity to match our distance and time pacing, and this allows to target our energy systems with some greater accuracy.

OWN YOUR LANE

GRIT is built on an evolving philosophy that training should focus first on the individual, and second, we workout together because who share the goals of being healthy and fit while having fun. The phrase that I use to remember this is ‘Own Your Lane’. This is intended to express, in part, the following:

  • Understand your own unique movement patterns, body type, strengths, weaknesses, etc.
  • Measure your own performance
  • Learn from those around me, but don’t compare myself to them
  • Stick to your own values
  • Keep moving forward
