  • Runners of all fitness levels often believe the harder and longer you train, the better you will perform on race day. That training methodology is simply not true, and could lead to injury before you even cross the finish line. In this webinar led by ACE Exercise Physiologist Mark P. Kelly, you’ll learn how incorporating cardiovascular adaptation, periodizing and biomechanics can make training programs both more manageable and effective. You’ll also explore recent developments in training and footwear to maximize performance in 5K and 10K races.

    You will learn:

    • Why training for 5K and 10K races differs from training for a marathon or half marathon
    • How to train according to the correct heart rate “zone”
    • How to periodize training to maximize performance for a given race date
    • New trends in footwear and how biomechanics should dictate the right type of shoe for you
    • Power of the Kelly-Intensity-Time (KIT) system for shaping training and maximizing performance

    Great information on running style programs. The speaker was well knowledgeable in the subject matter and presented the material very clear. I wish however that there was a little more information on actual workouts that you can put together rather than a general concept. Other than that I plan to use this to help myself and my clientele reach their own running goals.
