The group will meet Tuesdays at 5 pm in the Grace Cottage cafeteria, March 13 through May 8. Participation is free. The group will train outdoors together once a week, and be encouraged to train on their own time two more days each week. Best to start on March 13, but participants may join the group at any time.
The program follows a prescribed schedule to help potential runners get in shape, using an alternating pattern of walking and running. Each week the amount of time spent running increases, while the walking times decreases. Daigneault and Lucier will teach the method and will answer questions in a supportive environment.
By the end of the nine weeks, participants should be able to run a 5K, but walking during the “Spring Into Health 5K” is also perfectly acceptable.
