2015 RunKNOX Fall Training Programs


Farragut 13.1 Training Program


The goal of RunKNOX is to bring runners of all fitness levels together to train for events. This fall, RunKNOX will be the presenting partner for the Farragut 13.1 taking place on October 31.
This 14 week program will include various cycles. Participants will have a three week “building” phase followed by an easy week and then taper weeks. This program will emphasize building endurance levels and bringing speed into the equation. Combining these workouts with yoga and core sessions will build well-rounded runner.

What sets RunKNOX apart? We try to look at the entire motion of the runner, and “fix” problem areas. One way we do this is by incorporating yoga into our weekly routine. Every Thursday night there is a FREE optional YOGA class for all RunKNOX participants. The style of yoga we encourage is one for runners, focused on hips, low back, hamstrings and entire core stability. Another way is tailoring workout to challenge, yet encourage you to push past previous limits. While you train for your specific goal race, RunKNOX encourages you to enter and run other great races along the way. Get out and enjoy the companionship of other runners.
