For runners, the Winter and Spring months are typically a time for specialized training regiments like Base Building and Speed Work.
For beginners, this means getting your body used to running on a consistent basis – a key component to begin any running program, and a great start toward training for half marathons or full marathons.
For experienced runners, this means switching from the high mileage demands associated with marathon training to significantly lower mileage, but increasing speed work and strength training – all necessary elements toward improving race times.
Sacfit offers several programs that incorporate the above options. And with each program, we provide the tools and encouragement to inspire our runners to test their new found fitness and abilities at various Spring-time 5k and 10K races.
At the end of our 16-week program, Sacfit is teaming up again with race manager Rich Hanna to present The 12th Annual American River Parkway Half-Marathon/5K – Sacramento’s largest Spring-time half-marathon and 5K race. The race will be held on April 28, 2018, to coincide with our final day of the program.
All these factors contribute toward improving running performance and form, as well as fitness and health. But in keeping with the Sacfit philosophy, these programs are also designed to keep getting fit a fun, enjoyable, and interesting endeavor. After all, if it’s not fun, what’s the point?
