There is a spring Couch to 5k/Jumpstart Program available. This 7 week program will get you up and off the couch.

The Brooksie Way Training Program, presented by McLaren Health Care, is for those who have never participated in a race before and for those who are looking to improve their time goals.  This program will prepare you to run or walk the Half Marathon (13.1 miles), 5k (3.1 miles) or 10K (6.2 miles) on September 28, 2014.

The strength of this program is the weekly group workouts with others going your same pace.  At the group workouts, no matter what distance you are training for, most running and walking will be done using an interval method.  Runners will run for a designated time, walk for a minute, then run again.  Walkers will walk for a designated time, shuffle for a minute then resume their walking.  For instance, if it takes you 10 minutes to run a mile, you would be in a group which runs for 3 minutes/walks 1 minute/runs for 3 minutes.  You will use this interval method for your entire workout, you will not "graduate" to running without using intervals.  The group workouts will help you to build your endurance.  We also request that you run or walk 2 other days during the week.  The combination of the group workouts and homework will insure your success on race day.  We do have a non-interval half marathon group.

There are many different options to take part in this program so please see all the details.  This program is designed for adults, no pets or listening devices are allowed at the group workouts.  For more details, contact Sue Barnes, 248-841-1313 or
