Coached Training Info

2017 Spring & Summer 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 coached training sessions on 7 successive Tuesday evenings, starting Tuesday May 2nd and running through June 13th. Sessions will meet at 6:00 PM at the Nock Middle School parking area and will be held on nearby roads, trails and track. Workouts adjusted for fitness levels, paces, and goals. Suggested training week schedules available to enhance these workouts. Bio-mechanics (proper running form) emphasized.  Workouts and updated information will be posted regularly on this website. Mike is a USATF certified coach with experience coaching at all levels including 30 years of high school track and  20 years of Club level coaching. Mike also has 35 years of experience as a competitive runner. For details contact Mike McCormick at mamcc12@gmail.com or 978-382-0738.
