What we're about

A Snail's Pace Running Academy offers a medically based, structured training program for runners/walkers of all levels. Our goal is to safely train each individual and help them accomplish their own "A Fitness Lifestyle" goals.

In the Mission Viejo area, classes are offered in two locations; Mission Viejo store 24451 Alicia Parkway and Back Bay Loop-Muth Interpretive Center 2301 University Dr, Newport Beach 92660. Classes are held on Wednesdays at the store and Saturdays at the Back Back loop.

Classes offered are:

5K Walking/Running Training: This is a 8 week class meeting 2 times per week. Our goal, in addition to having fun, is to assist you in increasing your overall health profile.

Half Marathon Training is a 16+ week, 1x a week group. We can help you complete your first half marathon or prepare you to improve upon a previous events time. As with all of our courses, we are very goal oriented. Classes held on Saturdays 7am at the Back Bay Loop.

Marathon Training is a 20+ week, 1x a week group. We offer multiple training schedules depending on the ability of the runner. We are here to challenge you but safely guide you through your training. Classes held on Saturdays 7am at the Back Bay Loop.

We will not only get you to the start line of the race, but prepare you to successfully complete your event and be stronger in your day to day activities.

HEY....I just wanted to tell you Snail's that you are the bomb!!!!!! Great job this morning...We threw in some longer intervals and ended up running over 3 miles! That's a 5K and we aren't even thru the month!!! We have some faster runners and some that are just getting acclimated to running! Running is cardio...so it's ok to breath a little harder!!! Also...I have my magic whistle and will blow it once for those who want to regroup and twice for those that want to go a little further. The most important thing is to listen to your body...communicate with me big time!!!!! Drink plenty of water and have fun!!!! :) Next run will be between a 4:1 ratio and a 3:2 ratio...meaning walk between 3-4 minutes followed by a 1-2 minute run!!!! Great job!!!! We will also do a little functional training after our run like Saturday!!! Train to run...not run to train!! Blessings to you all! Coach Shawn

Hi Runners!!! Let's go team!!! You are all the BOMB...We are moving into a new ratio...which means we are running more than we are walking.2:3 ratio...some of us are still at a 3:2 ratio...and that's perfect...we always meet together after each interval! So google the story of why Geese fly in a V...it's the same reason we all stick together...it's your homework... Saturday's run will be the same as above... Blessings to you all! Coach Shawn xxxooo
