2018 Training Programs

At Fleet Feet Sports our goal is to provide the most comprehensive and motivational walking and running training programs in the country. These programs cater to the local community, but are part of a national network. Fleet Feet Sports training participants will feel a sense of inclusiveness and belonging while safely meeting fitness goals. 

Fleet Feet San Diego is hosting a series of training programs in 2018.

We use a schedule that is designed to increase evenly and progressively from start to finish. We break it up into three 4-week training phases for a typical training program, each with very specific training focuses:

  • Weeks 1-3: Introduction - in these weeks we introduce you to base pace, various workout types, and common themes in running
  • Weeks 4-6: Build & Strength - these weeks we will begin to increase weekly mileage, add strength and flexibility training, and focus on consistency 
  • Weeks 7-9: Sharpen & Lengthen - in this phase, we get confident with our work and perfect what we've done previously
  • Weeks 10-Race Week: Recover & Race Prep - the last few weeks of training are dedicated to rest, race planning and staying loose

*Our programs are progressive in nature, with each week building upon the last - slow, steady and consistent!
**Weekday meetups consist of different types of workouts (intervals, hills, fartlek, tempo, plyometrics, and good form running)
***Weekends are for long runs and recovery! We start out with a relatively short distance and slowly but surely build to our goal distance and pace!


 Upon signing up and paying for the training program, participants will receive an exclusive Perks Package during the course of the training program of in-store discounts for all your running essentials.
