Train to Run APPLETREE – Week 4

August 27, 2018

Are you feeling stronger? The program probably doesn’t feel easier because as you’re getting more fit, I’m making the program harder as you progress. We are three weeks in and ready to advance the program to get you to the finish line of the APPLETREE Sunset 5K or Half Marathon. Remember to listen to your body and progress more slowly if needed!

Remember to get signed up as soon as possible so then you’re committed! The Inaugural APPLETREE Marathon, Half Marathon and Sunset 5K on Saturday and Sunday September 15th & 16th is going to be epic. The start/finish line will be on Officer’s Row in front of the historical Grant House with a “Run through History” theme and runners and walkers will travel through the Fort, past the Pearson Museum and Airport, past the oldest Apple Tree on the Pacific Coast, along the water front and through downtown past the Columbian newspaper which is one of the oldest locally, family-owned newspapers in the country operating since 1890. Since Kids 17 and under can register for the 5K for FREE and with a distance for everyone in the family, we want to provide training guidelines and a program to make sure everyone is ready for race day! People from all over the country will be using the APPLETREE Marathon to quality for the Boston Marathon and we want to come together as a community and be part of this historical event and highlight how amazing Vancouver is! Not everyone can do a Marathon, but we can all do a 5K!

Train to Run APPLETREE – Week 3

August 20, 2018

We are two weeks in and ready to progress towards the finish line of the APPLETREE Sunset 5K/10K or Half Marathon. Remember, for those new to running, if you need to progress more slowly, that’s okay. You know your body better than anyone so if you need to adjust the programming to fit how your body is feeling, be sure to listen to your body.

Train to Run APPLETREE: Week 2

August 14, 2018

Hopefully, you’ve survived week one of the APPLETREE Training program and are now ready to progress. For those new to running, fifteen seconds of running at a time isn’t too bad, but as we increase this week, if you need to back off a bit that’s ok too. You could make the increase for as long as you can and then drop back to 15 seconds of running and 45 seconds of walking for the remainder of the 30 minutes. That’s true for the additional two programs – remember that you all know your body better than anyone so if you need to adjust the programming to fit how your body is feeling, be sure to do that.
