Want to get faster, stronger and more efficient in your running? Do you want to improve your running form, learn more about injury prevention, stretching and strengthening drills? Coach Tony Watson and Assistant Coach Charlene Kohler-Britton offer 10 week speed work sessions for $50 that includes all the above, and more. Sessions are offered for beginner/slower runners (Thursdays) and experienced/faster runners (Tuesdays). These workouts are for PPTC members only, and are held in Prospect Park and at the Red Hook Track. The next 10-week sessions start on September 15 and 17.
The training sessions will meet at the Bartel Pritchard Square (BPS) entrance of Prospect Park (across from the Pavilion Theater) at 7:00 PM each week and the Red Hook Track. Red Hook Track sessions will be announced in advance, and you will have the option of meeting at the track or meeting at 6:45 PM to run as a group from BPS to the track.
Each week a suggested training program will be sent by email after each session. Each includes a weekly program for those runners training for 10K distance and under, as well as a program for those who are training for half to full marathons.
Attached you will find the Info Sheet that we need each runner to complete, even if you’ve run with the coached speed program before. Please carry it with you for your first session and we will collect them before we begin. If the speed workouts are new to you, please bring your race history (2014-present).
Any gear you have can be stored in our car each week, so please do not be concerned if you are arriving straight from work. We also provide water after each session if the weather permits.
Again, we wish you a warm welcome and look forward to working with each of you.
Coach Tony & Charlene
