Cypress Running Club added a Walking Training Group in the 2016-17 Season! Hopefully you are ready to walk your way to the finish line!
The walking group will be great for those that:
- Love to walk
- Are not able to run
- Feel intimidated to start a running program, but want to exercise
- Are recovering from injury
- Haven’t exercised in a long time and want to start moving again!
The Walking Group training plan will target the Aramco Half Marathon. With that said, that doesn’t mean that you have to do that race to participate in the Walking Group. You are welcome to choose a different race and/or distance, but you can still train with the group. The official training plan is 15 weeks long, beginning in early October. To build endurance, the group will start meeting up in early August. As goes with running and walking, first comes endurance (time on your feet) then comes speed.
The training group will meet every Saturday morning for the longer walking distance of the week. Along with our Saturday training, you will also need to complete the other scheduled workouts during the week to help you achieve your goals.
Target races for the 2019-20 training season
