Here's to the New YOU! Feliz Actividad & Happy New Year! Congratulations on your commitment to good health & fitness!
Welcome to Running 102 Monrovia! The next 12 weeks will be a fun and challenging journey. We look forward to not only improving your running efficiency but also providing you the tools to allow you to achieve your health and fitness goals.
The goal race for our Winter Session is the Coaster Run 10K at Knott's Berry Farm on
Sunday, March 2nd.
Tonight we will go through a 10-15 minute orientation. This will include a brief overview of proper footwear and apparel for running, as well as the introduction to our warm up process that is also a strength conditioning workout. For a preview of the warm up, visit the Files section on this meetup site. Files section is under the heading "More". The handout used for our warm up is Functional Warm-up .
We will then complete a group 40 minute workout. We will be beginning with an interval of run 4/walk 1. Even if you are more advanced in your intervals, please participate in the group workout so you get to know your fellow Snail's!
Once we complete our workout, we will go into our cool down and stretch process. Please bring a bottle of water to drink while we are cooling down.
Meet your coach!
Jose feels coaching is a very fulfilling position because there is no better feeling than seeing someone who at first thought they were not a strong enough runner to finish a 5k accomplishment their goals. He currently runs to maintain his fitness level to participate in running events like 5k's, 10k's and Half Marathons. Jose has been running seriously since 2007 when he ran the Nike Run Hit-Remix at the Colosseum. Before that he was using running as a way to warm up before he started a physical activity like Martial Arts, Softball, Basketball and weight lifting. Right now his short term goal is to get a Triple Crown Medal in 2013 for running three Rock n Roll Half Marathons. His long term goal is to some day run a Full Marathon. Jose feels that you get out of your fitness what you put into it, in other words, go strong or go home.
