Sacfit Training Program Details
Our 16-week program is the longest (and least expensive) in the region. The longer program allows for the most complete training and preparation to assure the best success and results for any number of Spring-time training goals you might have, including:
- Half Marathon (First-time finish or PR goal)
- Speed work and Marathon base building
- 5K, 10K distances
- General Fitness
Additionally, our training program is safe and sensible and is tailored to each individual’s fitness and ability, including:
- Beginning Walkers and Runners taking that first step
- Intermediate Walkers and Runners building on an existing foundation
- Advanced Runners looking to get faster, hone technique and refine strategy.
Our typical weekly training is a 4-day schedule:
- Saturday group workout (supervised)
- Monday easy workout (on your own)
- Tuesday evening Stair or Track group workout (supervised)
- Thursday evening Tempo group workout
Note: For our advanced team members, we add an easy Wednesday workout.
Race Goals for the Upcoming New Year?
For those with a race goal in mind, our target race is the American River Parkway Half-Marathon and 5K. This is our most popular training program and is perfect for all fitness levels – and most New Year’s Resolutions! Our training program is also aligned with the Shamrock’n Half Marathon.
