“10K training forms the foundation of all-around fitness, because it includes ample amounts of the three core components of running – strength, stamina, speed. When you race a 10K, you immerse yourself in near-mythical tradition.” Runners World

Equilibrium Lifestyle Management (ELM) is kicking off their 14th annual 10K Clinic beginning Thursday, Feb. 19.

Led by kinesiologist and coach Sarah Seads, this 10-week co-ed running clinic takes place on Thursday nights from 5:30-7 p.m. and offers programs for beginner, novice, and experienced 10K runners.

Brand new runners with no running experience can train to safely complete their first 10K following the Beginner program. Novice runners will start by run:walking 3kms and work towards completing (and enjoying!) their first 10K. Intermediate and Advanced 10K runners will complete a challenging 10-week program that includes hill training, speed work, and pacing with personalized programs to reach a personal best.

This popular running clinic includes weekly discussions on efficient running form and biomechanics, nutrition, stretching, injury prevention, motivation, goal setting, race day preparation and much more. All participants receive a day-by-day training plan, ELM Running Clinic e-Manual and weekly coaching emails.

This clinic wraps up with the option of racing the Victoria Times Colonist 10K race on April 26. Racing provides opportunities to set and meet goals, stay committed to a running program, boost motivation, and challenge ones self physically and mentally. Some people race to win and others race against themselves and the clock to see what they are capable of. Once you cross the finish line of your first race, however, you are destined to be a runner for life!
