Come Prepared: Are you ready for your first workout? Here are a few great things you will need to come prepared to the first workout.
Goal Setting: "A goal is a dream with a deadline." What would you like to get out of this training? Are you looking to run or walk your first 5k? Trying to hit a PR in the 10k? What about just being able to keep up with your kids? Whatever your goal, it's important to put it in writing and create an action plan. Here is a fantastic worksheet to make sure you are setting S.M.A.R.T. goals.
American River Parkway Etiquette: Just as there are "rules of the road" when it comes to driving, there are similar safety rules and etiquette along the American River Parkway for walkers and runners. Click here to brush up on a simple code of conduct that keeps the parkway safe. Also, if you are in need of a Parkway Pass- Fleet Feet Sacramento sells them! Grab one and enjoy the "jewel of Sacramento".
Deena Kastor "Sound Body Sound Mind" Tip: "Have a purpose: why do you walk or run? I find if I have an answer to this question than I commit to the practice. Your answer may change with new races on the horizon. Do you want to set a personal best? You will need a deeper commitment. Do you want to lose 5lbs? Staying in bed for an extra hour won’t help with that. Let your reason for running drive your ambition."
Speed School: For those of you who are registered for Monday Night Speed School your first workout will be Monday, April 11th @ 6:00 pm at William Land Park, near Doc Oliver Field. Bring a water bottle and yoga mat or towel for stretching and core work. Space is still available if you would like to add this exclusive training experience.
