Coached Speed Workouts SPRING 2017

Please note: Our speed-work sessions are intended for runners with at least six months of experience, as attempting speed workouts before building a solid mileage base puts runners at a greater risk of injury. If you’re a brand new runner looking for coaching, check out the programs at JackRabbit Sports.

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 are offering a special 1 ½ hour, seven week speed work session for $50 that includes all that and more. Sessions are offered for both experienced/faster runners (Tuesdays) and beginner/slower runners (Thursdays).  These workouts are for PPTC members only. They will be held in Prospect Park and at the Red Hook Track. Our Speed Clinics are geared to all runners who favor all distances, from the mile to the marathon. Workouts will include drills, strength training, core and stretches in addition to the speed work.

The seven week session will begin on April 11th & 13th and will run through May 23rd & 25thSign up here:

(Note, an active membership in the Prospect Park Track Club is required to participate in this program.)

Each week a suggested training program will be sent by email after each session. Each includes a 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).

Again, we wish you a warm welcome and look forward to working with each of you.

Coach Tony & Charlene
