CONGRATS ON TAKING THE FIRST STEP IN ACHIEVING YOUR HALF MARATHON GOAL!
Welcome to the beginning of your Disney Half Marathon journey. A Snail's Pace Running Academy looks forward to not only getting you to the finish line of your event but to providing you with the tools to help you achieve your running and fitness goals.
We will be providing you with an evidence based, structured training program. By applying the principles and the training requirements we provide, you will greatly reduce the risk of injury.
At today's session, you will receive a brief orientation of approximately 10 minutes. This will include 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 Conditioning Exercises.
After a 1 mile warm-up you will participate in a timed 2 mile run. The goal of this timed run is not to run fast or hard, it is just a means for us to place you in a pace group and determine an appropriate interval for your training. Please dress prepared to run.
After our 3 mile run, we will complete a group Foundation Training workout before the cool downand post run stretching. You will find your Strength Training Level 1 & 2 handout in the files section as well. FORMA Total Body Strength Levels 1 & 2 + Appendix

MEET YOUR COACH
Hello, my name is Anita Power and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity of coaching for A Snails Pace Running Academy! I’ve been running for nearly 5 years and have completed a marathon, several half marathons, 10K’s, 5k’s, trail runs, and mud runs. Having participated and coached in previous ASPRA trainings, I’ve found it to be a wonderful experience in which I’ve gained valuable running knowledge and experience. Best of all, I’ve been able to make and maintain wonderful friendships. My goal for you as coach is to help you reach your running goals in a safe, supportive, and fun approach!
