2016 Goals

Here is the link that Coach Stevens created to record your goals. Let us know your short term and long term goals. Much easier to accomplish something if you know what you are shooting for.

Training Information

- Foot drills and strides are done after almost every running session
- Recovery food should be brought on interval days and long runs (see below for details)
- Remember to record workout (splits and mileage) in running log (see below for details)
- Use a GPS (garmin is recommended) watch to log mileage and splits (see below for details)
Post workout nutrition (Recovery food)- To be consumed after interval sessions and long runs (30 minute window after foot drills and strides). Not necessary after short/easy/recovery runs.
- Formula: body weight/2 = number of grams of Carbohydrates plus 15g of protein

communicates with garminconnect. If using a garmin watch it will automatically sync your workouts. Important because it is fast convenient and requires less steps. 
GPS watch with lap splits- Garmin watch is ideal because the online running log syncs to garminconnect. In addition, the GPS is very reliable.
