Great Job Gil Torres!!!
I just got back from the first installment of the Beginner's Runners Workshop. I ain't no beginner but I sure got some learning.
About 20 newbies showed up and all had a great time. For some it was there fist loop around the Park.
Next week there will be lessons on interval training (or fartleks for us oldsters).
Beginners' Workshop Series Kicks Off
First in Three-Part Series Begins Saturday
Gil Torres, Kirsten Marino and Katie Muladore will be leading a three-session workshop starting this Saturday, March 14th, at 8 a.m. designed specifically for beginner runners. This pilot program is in collaboration with Slope Sports and grew directly from our success with the joint group runs. We are reaching out to runners who feel they are too slow or inexperienced to do long outings with the big group. Each session will illustrate practical tips that will help runners stick with a program, develop good technique and progress gradually and safely towards their goals. All paces are welcome. We’ll be regrouping at specific points along the run and nobody will be left behind. We’ll meet on the sidewalk at the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park. The program is free and we encourage you to attend all three sessions. Non-club members are welcome.
