Fast Trax Run & Ski Club
Based on the pacing ideas of Lyle Knudson, the base of the program is “speed” development, for all events including up to ultra-marathons; which makes running and skiing at progressively increased event paces more efficient, allowing great long-term development potential. As we improve pure speed, we improve speed endurance (allowing us to carry that pure speed over increased distances) and specific endurance (allowing us to run and ski at increased paces over our specific events).
The shop Run Workouts on Wednesday and Saturday are open to everyone on a drop in basis which you can use in conjunction with your current program or you can sign up to be a Fast Trax Athletic Club Member to start a training relationship working the weekly workouts into an overall plan for specific events. We currently do not offer drop in Nordic workouts.
The shop running workouts are done on grass from the first week in May to the August Long Weekend to prepare for the key trail events at which point we switch to the pavement until the end of April to prepare for the main spring and fall marathons.
