Wednesday Walk OR Workout
“Do you know of any running groups/clubs I can join?” is a common question we get here at Minneapolis Running. While there are several groups in the Twin Cities, we thought it was time to get something more started in Northeast Minneapolis.
Starting this Wednesday, July 31, we’ll be partnering with Mill City Running for Wednesday Walk OR Workout.
When: Wednesdays, 6:00 pm
Where: Meet at Mill City Running – 411 E Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis, MN.
We’ll start with some brief introductions at the shop, then head out in our various groups.
What is a Wednesday Walk?
If you’re not a runner, but just looking for others to walk around our beautiful river Mill District, join us! All are welcome (especially babies in strollers). It will be very casual, but feel free to walk at your own pace.
What is a Wednesday Workout?
Workout Wednesday is to help give you a sense of direction with your training. Often, runners are left not knowing how to approach workout days or left to do them alone. We hope to fill in both of those voids by creating a sense of community and camaraderie while also providing an organized and efficient workout atmosphere.
The first installment of Workout Wednesday is to get a barometer of what people are training for and current levels of fitness. ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME! The coaches will come equipped with several workouts to accomodate athletes from beginner to advanced.
A course will be setup on Nicollet Island with several markers to designate different distances to give you options for the type of workout you’re aiming for.
Who Are The Coaches?
Both Andrew Carlson and Antonio Vega run for Team USA Minnesota. They have years of expertise and are excited to help coach runners to their goals. They will be learning what works best for the group while providing an organized, professional and fun workout.
Feel free to bring your racing shoes and any fluids / nutritional products to use during the workout (one of us will carry them).
Questions? Let us know!
We hope to see you there!
