2015 Fall Coached Training Sessions.

Extensive research shows the value of using all energy and muscle systems to improve your running, avoid injury, and make you a better athlete. HOWEVER this type of training must be done carefully with an appropriate level of stress increase for the athlete to realize the most benefit and not to get injured in the process.

WCRC coach Mike McCormick  will lead a weekly series of fall coached training sessions on 7 successive Wednesday evenings, starting Wednesday September 9 (until October 21).
