This program is designed to help walkers, walk-runners, and runners who want to traverse the 5K, 5-Mile, or 10K distance. If you've never completed a 5K (3.1 miles), 5-Mile, or 10K (6.2 miles), this may be right for you. The timing is scheduled so that participants will be ready for their chosen distance by the end of August. There is no obligation to register for any race, and if you choose to register for one, that is a payment to the race.
The program targets three groups' goals:
All "Ready for" programs take participants from where they are to their chosen distances and cover nine weeks, with 21 coached in-person workouts (including 5K, 5-Mile, and10K practice for the participants' chosen training distances), a practice of their specific distance, a comprehensive training plan (tweaked midway, if needed, as the participants progress), and a private training group on Facebook, at the value price of $70!
Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 6 through August 26, at 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. (No in-person workout on 7/22, 27, or 29.)
Saturdays, July 17 through August 28, at 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. (No in-person workout on 7/10 or 7/24.)
All workouts are at Greece Canal Park, Millennium Lodge, at 241 Elmgrove Rd., Rochester, NY 14626.
Tuesdays are hill workouts. Thursdays are speed workouts. Saturdays are long distance workouts.
Meet the Instructor
Ready for 5K, Ready for 5-Mile, and Ready for 10K are designed and led by Vickey A. Beaver. She is certified by Athletics and Fitness Association of America for Group Exercise Instruction, so you are getting someone who is serious about helping others. Having been an avid walker for years, she got out of the habit of exercising altogether and didn't find her way back to it until mid-2010. Starting with just a couple of miles around a local mall by herself, a year later, she was meeting different friends there and elsewhere five days a week at varying speeds and distances, as they joined her on her training journey to walk the December 2011 Honolulu Marathon. One thing led to another and she has embraced exercise again for very different reasons than when she was first active. Now she enjoys it for how it makes her feel, the community she's become part of, and the short- and long-term health benefits she sees in her health exams and assessments.
