Walking the same pace every day will likely get you that same pace on race day. That’s why Coach Carmen offers track practice. It’s a weekly workout that focuses on shorter, faster intervals to improve leg speed and economy of motion. You’ll also learn new stretches and have a chance to ask questions about issues that may arise during your training program. Pushing the pace with other walkers is not the pressure-packed environment you might find on race day. We keep it fun and low-key. Athletes frequently encourage each other and offer tips that they’ve learned along the way. The 12-week summer session begins May 29th and goes through the third week in August.
