    TRAINING CLASS DESCRIPTION

    The Fall 2016 Half Marathon Class is a 12-week
    program preparing individuals to participate in a
    half marathon this fall. The class starts on Thursday,
    September 8, 2016 at 1st Place Sports, Town Center
    Store (4870 Big Island Drive) at 6:30 PM (come prepared for a short run that evening).

    The class can serve as a stepping stone for those planning to complete a marathon in December or January. The target half marathon is the Subaru Distance Classic Half Marathon on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016. If not able to participate on Thanksgiving Day, a good alternate half marathon would be the Ameris Bank Half Marathon on December 18, 2016.


    YOUR RUNNING LEVEL
    Most participants will progress towards completing the entire half marathon running, but others may prefer a walk/run combination to complete the race. It is recommended that you be running or walk/running three times per week for two to three weeks preceding the class start date. Please take it slow and easy if you are not currently training.

    The program will accommodate all levels of runners, so everyone is  encouraged to participate in the training class. Pace groups will be formed to complete training runs at 17 minutes per mile and faster. You will be encouraged and assisted to tailor your training program to fit your specific fitness level, time constraints and running goals.


    GROUP RUNS
    The class will meet every Tuesday for group runs and selected Saturdays for long runs throughout the training schedule. Be prepared to train 4-5 times per week for a significant benefit. Tuesday we will meet at 6:15 PM, conduct a group discussion and depart for a training run at 6:30 PM. The Tuesday meeting location is on the River Walk near the Yates YMCA in Riverside, except for the first class.

    We will meet Saturdays at 7 AM starting Sept. 10 and every other weekend for a long group run in varying locations throughout the Jacksonville area: Downtown, Ortega, Orange Park, San Marco and Fleming Island. Saturday formal group runs are scheduled for September 10, 24, October 15, 22, November 5, 19. Being present at any particular training event or day is not a requirement to benefit from the class.


    TOPICS TO BE DISCUSSED

    Group discussions conducted most Tuesdays prior
    to Group Runs will cover:
    » Training Plan Development
    » Running Shoe Selection
    » Nutrition
    » Running Clothing and Specialty Products
    » Heart Rate Monitor Training

    » Varied Training
    » Cross Training
    » Night before and Race Day Preparation


    TRAINING CLASS COACH

    The class is conducted by Jennifer DeSantis who
    has been a participant and group leader for the past 3 years. She is a fitness coach who has worked with people of all levels training for various events. She has raced numerous races from 5Ks (3.1) to Marathons (26.2) across the country. In addition to Jennifer,  there will be pace group leaders providing additional guidance and encouragement.
