Program Summary – Flying Feet, coordinated by coach Dave Griffin, is a running program for runners of all paces and experience levels. Griffin has over 45 years of running experience and over 17 years of experience coaching runners. Flying Feet brings the training principles used by elite runners to the local running community. Though some modification is needed for most runners, the principles of running success and enjoyment are universal, and local runners can gain significant benefits by using them.
Training Plans – A variety of training plans will be provided so that all runners have a plan to use, whether they are new to running or an experienced marathoner. The plans will include instructions to help runners get started, and guidance is provided throughout the program. Weekly workouts are communicated for the coming week via email update.
Coached Workouts in Westminster and Littlestown – Weekly coached workouts will be offered. Each workout will be planned so that runners receive the training benefits required to make running more enjoyable and to reach racing related goals. In addition to the workout itself, instruction will be provided to help runners learn the fundamental concepts of training. Runners will have the option of meeting for workouts on Tuesday evening in Littlestown or Wednesday evening in Westminster. Coached workouts every third Saturday will be offered in Westminster.
Flying Feet Race Series – The season will include three races for participants of this program at no additional cost. These races will be designed to assist with training goals, while helping participants practice the race tactics taught in training.
Flying Feet Remote Program – Flying Feet offers a virtual training program. For those participating in the remote program, the Monday evening Zoom calls provide workout instruction and help runners learn key training and racing principles. These Zoom calls will be recorded so that the recordings can be viewed by those who cannot attend the calls. Participants of the remote program can run in Flying Feet races and may attend up to 5 coached workouts during the season.
