Details & Sign Up 

 
Ahh yes!  Music to my (non-headphone) ears!

I do so love running…most of the time:)  It’s such a good time to re-connect with myself…my thoughts, my body…my age!

I have been preaching about ditching technology for quite a few years now…it’s something I practice myself and highly recommend.  It’s also a big theme of how I coach at Leapfrog.  

Leapfrog philosophy is shaped around both Run Form & Perceived Effort.  We aim to coach runners to be more aware of themselves.  To pay attention to things like Breathing, Posture & Foot Strike (Taking Inventory!)  I coach self awareness and methods to bring athletes more in tune to themselves.  I prefer coaching from the inside as opposed to having a device tell me how things are going.

I often laugh when I see runners “finish” their run only to continue running laps in the parking lot to hit their GPS number.  I also cringe when I see someone finish a run with a smile on their face only to check their Garmin and be disappointed in there pace…  Technology can often take the joy right out of running.  

Learning to “KNOW THYSELF” and trust your body/training is what I believe is key to not only running successful but to running long term and healthy.  Learning to listen to the “whispers” of the body…Learning to be disciplined…Learning when to modify.  These are things we value at Leapfrog.  Using technology does have a place in running, but I believe that place is more of a novelty than foundation for training/success. 

Listening to Your Body…Running Principles…Run Form…Run Consistency, Run Discipline and Fun Running…This is what we focus on at Leapfrog.

I look forward to sharing more Principled Focused Running with all of you over the coming months and throughout 2020!!  


Leapfrog February continues our 4 week Hill Series to help us Overcome Obstacles and Keep Control when life/running gets difficult.  We look forward to working with each and every one of you 3 times weekly to help make you both a strong & wise runner.  The culmination of our Hill Series is our yearly DESTINATION RACE sign up for The Leadville Marathon & Heavy 1/2.  It’s taking hill running to the mountains and giving everyone the opportunity to truly test your limits.  I hope you will consider joining us for the challenge that is our Hill Series and then continue with Leapfrog out west to Leadville, CO to take on the Mountains!!

Cheers Everyone!!  

Together we will be Strong, Wise, Healthy & Fit in 2020 & Beyond.
 
All it takes is some discipline & your commitment to showing up to practice…


CHEERS!!

 Making the choice to Be Committed in 2020 & Beyond!


RUN WITH PURPOSE
LIVE WITH PURPOSE


PREPARE YOURSELF.


PLAN AHEAD.  BE DISCIPLINED.  SHOW UP.  Leapfrog offers 3 practices each week…Your Results Will Be In Proportion to Your Practice.

I look forward to seeing everyone at a Leapfrog Event this week!  In addition to the paid training listed above we also offer a weekly free Bike Ride:  Tuesday 6:30a.m. Bike Skills Ride followed by coffee.   Details can be found on the website under the events tab:)

I was working out with a private client this past week and we were chatting about cardio fitness.  I told her we were going to test her cardio progress this upcoming week.  Her reply:  So you’re going to try to exhaust me.  

Cardio fitness isn’t working out to total exhaustion.  

It’s something that people sometimes mistake:  they equate exhausting workouts to high fitness.  

At Leapfrog we are firm believers in QUALITY over QUANTITY.  Mastering the basic Fundamentals of Breathing and Posture and then applying those fundamentals to all movements.  Form Matters.  In my view:  Fitness is a mastery of movement. 

In Running, Biking, Swimming and Lifting:  How you move matters!  Your effort has a lot to do with your efficiency of movement and as your efficiency of movement improves so does your fitness. 

This week at Leapfrog we are working on RECOVERY at our Monday Track Workout…this is geared to make our 200 Meter Repeats on Wednesday more Efficient as we practice not only the speed work of the 200 but also to Breath, Posture and Heart Rate of the rest between intervals.  Friday we continue to work on efficiency and recovery as we practice running at The Top of The Hill.  The same principle of Breath Control and Strong Posture come into play as crest the hill and work toward Active Recovery at The Top.

So:  my reply to my private client:  Absolutely not!  I’m not planning on running you into the ground, we are going to practice small intervals and focus on how strong she recovers…how she maintains her posture and how she regains control of her breath.  It won’t be miles and miles of running…it will be Fundamental Focused Coaching where we will both be able to see and hear the progress she’s made.   

I look forward to sharing more Principled Focused Running with all of you over the coming months and throughout 2020!!  


Leapfrog February continues our 4 week Hill Series to help us Overcome Obstacles and Keep Control when life/running gets difficult.  We look forward to working with each and every one of you 3 times weekly to help make you both a strong & wise runner.  The culmination of our Hill Series is our yearly DESTINATION RACE sign up for The Leadville Marathon & Heavy 1/2.  It’s taking hill running to the mountains and giving everyone the opportunity to truly test your limits.  I hope you will consider joining us for the challenge that is our Hill Series and then continue with Leapfrog out west to Leadville, CO to take on the Mountains!!

Cheers Everyone!!
