If you live in the NY area and love to run, you have to check out the MileHigh Run club. The first class is free so you can see if its the kind of class that you like before committing any boutique class dollars. My daughter Laura (the wind beneath all my running) went to the class via classpass and told me about it. She had a great experience.
Truthfully, I had heard of the club before and wasnt all that interested in it. Boy was I wrong. The class was amazing. I took the Dash class which was about 30 minutes of running and then full body weight work. ( squats, lunges, planks and kettlebell work)
It has been my quiet goal to along with not getting injured, to gain some speed this year. I know its tougher at my age, but everything I read said its possible. I asked the coach afterward if my pace goal was attainable and she said YES!
So, I will be back. I am going to go at least once a week during my spring marathon training that starts on Monday ( EEK!)
Check it out and let them know I sent you.
