Information: Marathon Training Program

 

Attention Men & Women Who Would Have To Drive A Considerable Distance Or Who Sometimes Have Saturday Commitments, Or Will Be Traveling:

 

If you are juggling career issues, children or family issues, or have to drive a long distance to participate in the training program, HERE IS THE SOLUTION TO YOUR DILEMMA! Once we get up in mileage, the long runs will be followed the next Saturday by a short recovery run---these short recovery runs can be done at home or on vacation. Once you get your schedule, you will know when these short runs are.

  

If you live a considerable distance from Charlotte, you can sign up, advise us you want to be a Virtual runner, and do your training runs at your location and get all training by email.

 

Running In The Heat Of Summer:

 

We are the only Training Program, that when the Summer heat arrives,will have tubs of ice water, with sponges, at the waterstops, so you can squeeze cold water from the sponges on your head and torso to cool off. This is a cooling delight when running in the Summer Heat !!!!

 

Waterstops - Quality Of Water: 

 

Waterstops will feature Gatorade and bottled spring water--no flouride and chlorinated tap water at our waterstops!!!! Gatorade even made with Spring water!

 

Testimonials-Why The Galloway Program?

 

Several years ago, my 10 minute per mile Pace Team team leader could not run the April SouthPark Half Marathon---so I filled in for her. Most of the runners who ran with the 10 minute Pace Team had not done the Galloway method. The team came in 1 minute 30 seconds earlier than what the pace for 13.1 miles should have been. But here was the shocker! Two of the women had run the Southpark Half Marathon the previous year (course was the same) and bettered last years time by 21 and 22 minutes respectively!!!! All ran their best time ever and all kept saying " how is it possible to take walk breaks and still run my best time ever in this race." All kept saying at the end " If I had not just experienced this, I would swear that the time I ran was not possible." The secret to all of this was simple---they had reached the last few miles without being exhausted! They ran themselves into the ground the previous year and were absolutely exhausted. The walk breaks keep you from being exhausted and allow you to finish a marathon or half marathon much stronger! Walk breaks will be 30 seconds on many teams, about the same time as hitting a water stop during a race!

 

PROGRAM DETAILS:Join Charlotte's largest training program,and Charlotte's most successful training program,now in its 28th year----the Jeff Galloway Training Program! This program will have running teams for runners of all levels. The Galloway Program has helped individuals at all levels of conditioning "To Get In Shape" and train for and finish half marathons and marathons!

 

Chase A Dream----Join us and experience the camaraderie, the fun, and the new friends of a truly outstanding National Training Program. 

 

LEARN THE SECRETS TO LONG DISTANCE RUNNING!

 

WEEKLY TRAINING EMAILS:

 

Each week , the weekly training email will unlock the "Secrets to Long Distance Running"! These secrets will then be applied to our weekly organized run.

 

LEARN THE SECRETS TO BEING HEALTHY! 

 

WEEKLY HEALTH BULLETINS:

 

Most Marathon and Half Marathon Programs are just that--training information. This Program goes beyond that to give you the equivalent of 2 programs for the price of ONE. Each week, you will get cutting-edge health information from top Doctors and Health websites, that will give you advance knowledge of health and nutrition trends long before they appear in traditional media.

 

WHEN DO WE RUN:

 

We meet early each Saturday morning for our weekly organized run. We ask you to run 2 times during the week on your own. If you currently run 3 times a week during the week, that is OK too.

 

WHERE THE SATURDAY RUNS START:

 

The Uptown Childress-Klein YMCA. Directions to this "Y" are at the end of this email. This is not the "Y" on Morehead St.

 

We Organize You Into Teams By Like Abilities

 

We will have enough people to create teams of like speed and ability, and thus provide you with the support and camaraderie that is so needed for long distance running. We will group you by "Like Abilities" ,so that the people you are running with ,run at a similar pace as you do. You can switch teams at any time.

 

The Power Of The Running In A Group

 

 NOTHING WILL MAKE THE LONG RUNS EASIER THAN RUNNING WITH A GROUP!

 

 By organizing you in groups by pace, you will watch unfold before your eyes, the wonderful "Magic" that occurs when you run in a group. The group will literally "pull you along" as you cultivate new friends and swap funny stories ------after all, we encourage you to have a good time on the runs because it make time go by faster and distance seem shorter!

 

Join us and see why training is much more fun the Galloway way,and how running with a group eliminates the long ,lonely, and monotonous hours of training by yourself!

 

YOU WILL ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS MUCH EASIER RUNNING WITH A GROUP!

 

The Magic Of Jeff Galloway's Method For Long Training Runs and The Actual Marathon

 

We will teach you the "Magic" of Jeff Galloway's method of adding 30 second walk breaks during the run. This allows the legs to recover and to save energy for the back half of the run where it is truly needed,and will reduce injuries you can incur doing long distance training. Those that are training for their 1st Maraathon often assume they do not need any type of walk break, and my answer to that is "Wait to you get to 20 miles -the next 6 miles will not be like any 6 miles you have ever run!"

 

Runs Each Week

 

We will get together early each Saturday morning for our Weekly organized run---this will be the long run for the week and will increase in distance according to the schedule you will get.. We will ask you to run on your own at your convenience 2 times during the week for 30-45 minutes per run---these runs are the same each week.Runs during week can be what you usually do.
