Beginner’s Running Program

 

Join our Beginner Running Program and safely work your way up to running in 12 weeks. The program develops beginner runners through 12 weeks of brisk walking and jogging intervals. Beginner runners will work alongside recent graduates of the program, training to run a 5k race* (3.1 miles). In addition to running, we will also work through habits that will help you maintain your running, like stretching and strength training. The new friends you meet in the program will hold you accountable to the weekly runs! At the end of the program, new members will work up to running comfortably for 25-minutes straight., racers will feel ready to complete a 5K road race, and all participants will have confidence and motivation to keep moving forward. Kate Vandel will coach our Beginner Running Program. Kate is a long-time runner and currently preparing to complete her 9th full marathon.

*If you are currently able to comfortably run or run/walk for 25 minutes straight and want to join the 5k group, please join us!

This program will begin September 10th and will finish November 28th.

Racquetball

Did you know the YMCA has 2 racquetball courts? It does! So break away from your regular workout schedule and play a game of racquetball. It’s a great workout and a fun way to get some exercise. The YMCA has racquets you may borrow but you must supply you own eye protection.  THE YMCA RECOMMENDS THE USE OF EYE PROTECTION.  Members can reserve a 45 minute court time up to 48 hours in advance. Call the Y at 605.224.9622.
