Winter (Half Marathon) run program plus video analysis

Would you like to be fit enough to run a strong half marathon by April? Have you always wanted to get detailed feedback about your running form and efficiency?

The Startline winter run program is designed for the self-directed athlete who wants to take their run preparation to the next level.

This 12-week program begins with two, in-person group training sessions to learn about running form, practice key drills, and capture video of your running. The next 10 weeks will include a once-weekly, coach-led group Zoom session to work on strength & flexibility. These Zoom group sessions provide the opportunity for ongoing coach Q & A as well as organizing running partner meet ups. Each athlete will also have a 30-minute individual video-feedback session with their coach on their form, including written recommendations. The program will wrap up with race preparation sessions and development of a race pacing plan. All athletes receive a complete 12 week training plan with daily workouts that establishes base fitness and race readiness.

Note: The safety of all athletes, coaches, and staff is of paramount concern as we collectively face the health and safety risks of the COVID-19 Pandemic. All Startline Coaching programs follow USA Swimming best practices, USA Triathlon Safe Return to Multisport Guidelines and Return to Racing Recommendations for Race Directors and the directives issued by federal, state and local authorities. All athletes, coaches, & staff engaged in Startline Coaching programs are expected to follow the USA Triathlon Return to Racing recommendations for Athletes as well as Startline Coaching Return to Training Safety Code of Conduct.
