Live from The Track: Floating 200 Repeat Day! 6/10/2020

PREPARE YOURSELF

Learn…Practice…Workout

There was some great competition at The Track today for Leapfrog Traditional Speed Work! It’s always better with a group:)

Today’s workout was 12 by 200 Meter Repeat w/200 Meter “Floating” Recovery between. Although the speed part of the workout is tough…it’s actually the Floating Recovery that we really paid attention to today. Maintaining Strong Posture, Controlling Your Breath, Keeping Your Mind Focused… The details during the Active Recovery was my main focus for the runners today. It was a Strong Performance by all!!

PREPARE YOURSELF.

One of the things you’ll hear repeated at a Leapfrog Practice is:  “Know Thyself.”  It comes with the territory of perceived effort coaching, know your effort!  It is also along these lines that effective coaching involves knowing your athletes.  Although Leapfrog is a Form & Fundamentals focused training group, we also coach strategy, discipline and encouragement.  Leapfrog seeks to develop strong athletes physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.  In addition to our weekly group workouts we also host monthly socials to build better connections to our members.  

Membership has more to offer than just savings and socials though!  Membership also builds relationships and shares experiences.  As you may have read earlier in this newsletter…our members check on each other, they care!  We support one another through our efforts and actions.  I’m happy to say that many a friendship has started at Leapfrog:)

I like to take this time to invite you start your journey with Leapfrog if you haven’t yet…and challenge you if you’ve been a part of Leapfrog!  I invite you to JOIN LEAPFROG 3 mornings a week for our local group practices!!  It’s here that we not only build strong fundamentals, master the basics but we also build strong friendships and supportive group dynamics. I would also like to take this opportunity to Challenge You!  SIGN UP for LEADVILLE!!!  “You ARE Stronger than you think you are!”  “You can do more than you think you can!”  Accept the challenge of running at 10,000 feet!  Is it easy???  NO.  Is it work??  YES!  Can you finish???  I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!  Take the challenge…Sign Up and I promise we will get you there…up to 13,000 and back to the FINISH LINE!!  

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

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 Leadville, CO to take on the Mountains!!

Cheers Everyone!!

Live from The Track 2/19/2020

PREPARE YOURSELF

Wednesday workouts are normally Traditional Speed Work…today we planned for 400 meter repeats…but sometimes situations change and the need to modify swiftly appears! The track at The Community School of Naples is currently being re-surfaced (Really Great News!! Gonna be an AMAZING TRACK soon!) so we had to make a quick change to our planned workout. At Leapfrog we often talk about being able to Modify.

Learn…Practice…Workout

Next Up: Our Friday Hill Series continues with focus on maintaining pace at the bottom of the hill.

It’s also a weekend of LEAPFROG SOCIALS both Friday and Saturday! Family friendly ways to relax and be healthy. It’s always nice to know those you train with:)
