Different Training Groups To Join In

Fitness 5K

This is a group for those who are just beginning to find the joys in running. Either they are but taking the first few steps from a sedentary lifestyle or are already running continuously for 30 minutes but are not yet ready to level up to 10K running. Aside from slowly building up stamina for a 5K run, fitness exercises are the very core of this program where weight loss is given due attention as much as stamina build up. Metafit Training, a specially designed program by Coach Jim Saret for improved over all fitness and used by Biggest Loser contestants, will be utilized in this group of budding runners and health enthusiasts.

Endurance 10K Group

5K runners who want to level up to 10K distance as well as 10K runners who are not yet ready to conquer the half marathon will find this group suited for their current cardio-vascular fitness level. The very focus of the set of exercises and training regimen specially crafted for this group is endurance build up. Running exercises will have a more intense facet as compared to the 5K group. Most probably, if you had been running for three months, more or less, and are already capable of running for more than 30 minutes, you belong to this group.


Strength 21K Group

For me this is the more difficult leveling up for a newbie runner, as this requires an immediate doubling of the longest distance ran. However, this can be the most rewarding. Being a pikermi runner signifies that you have reached a certain level, or status, in running as to earn the mark of a serious runner. Aside from endurance that by now you must have a good degree of, the training for this group gives added focus on strength improvement. For longer distances as 21K, a runner needs a good degree of strength in order for his or her form not to degenerate in the closing Ks and to finish the race strong. A good measure if you are suited for this group, for me, is that you must have been running for 6 months, more or less, continuously.

Power 42K Group

The “ultimate” running group as they train under the most complete and structured programs in order to be able to run the marathon in a “powerful” way. Strong finish is always a goal for most long distance runners. Running for hours the marathon distance would entail most resolve and strength storage to be able to do so. However, with this Power 42K training, you will not only have the required strength, but the speed and the power to finish this daunting distance with poise and bearing. Well for me, at least, that is the most optimal requisite, haha! More than 6 months of religious running is the minimal requisite in order to be able to suit in this group and conquer the distance comfortably.


The Training Program – The Three Levels and Intensities

The training programs for various levels are constructed in conjunction with three varying levels of focus, techniques, drills and intensity throughout the 36 sessions.

In the weekly training activity level, the three training days, likewise, have varying degrees of intensity to avoid injuries and efficiently build total fitness for a faster and stronger running performance.


Conjunctive Activities To Running


Aqua Training
As many athletes can profess, swimming or water running is the best cross training exercise to running. The muscular-skeletal stress of running to our body can best be relieved by water buoyancy while still indulging the muscles to flush out the lactic acids that cause fatigue and pain.


Trekking for me is like hill training. Leg and core strength are engaged while walking for miles in a mountainous terrain. In this training, though, the break in the usual urban scenery and pollutants can make for a more entertaining and healthier form of cross-exercise.
