This summer, Fleet Feet Sports will be hosting a training crew focusing on the popular Nike Women's Half Marathon.  Our coaches will take you through 10 weeks of tempo runs, interval training, cross training, long runs, nutrition and recovery.  Also included will be fun social events like a private wine tasting event and a BodyRok Open House.  

Who is leading your team:

Details about the training:

  • Program kick-off: Saturday, August 2nd at 7:45am.  The first workout will be a 3.1-mile goal-setting run.  After this run, each runner will work with Coach Ashley to plan their training strategy to achieve their race-day goals.  Your running pace and effort level during the first run will be the basis for calculating the span of your training.

    • Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. - Interval Training & Tempo Runs (Meet at Fleet Feet Sports)
    • Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. - Nike Training Club Cross Train Workout (Meet at Fleet Feet Sports)

  • Each runner will receive a calendar with training or rest recommendations for each day, even when the group does not meet.
  • The training crew will have a limited number of spaces available to ensure a high coach-to-runner ratio.
