Running Training with Alli

The Running Training class is a mixed level workout appropriate for the casual “lifestyle runner,” the 10k age group competitor, the experienced marathoner, and everyone in between. Moms are welcome to bring children in jog strollers to the class.

Running Training follows a circuit format, wherein stops along the beautiful 2-4 mile loop around Lady Bird Lake allow the participants to re-group. During the “stops,” drills, exercises, and cross-training are performed in order to:

  • emphasize technique
  • focus on proper form
  • correct body alignment
  • work on body balance

MountBonnell-1My focus is on teaching good form first and foremost, but improving speed is a secondary focus. Good form and faster times go hand in hand; the better your form, technique, and body mechanics, the more efficient you are and the faster you run. Further, for individuals with specific running goals (training for an event), I will personalize programs and coach tailored to individual needs.
