Learn to Run Beginner Program

Fall is a great time to start a running program! The air is crisp and clear, the trails are dry and firm. If you are new to running below you will find a 10 week program that consists of a total workout time of 20 minutes.

In order for you to get the most out of this program, you should follow the schedule at least 3 times per week. By being physically active at least 3 times per week you will be running for 20 consecutive minutes in no time!

To make sure you are not working too hard, whether you are running or walking, it should be done at a conversational pace, meaning that you can easily talk while engaging in the activity.

– Before beginning this program or any other please first consult with your chiropractor or medical doctor.
