Locations and Times
Make It A Mile meets at Fleet Feet Sacramento, 2311 J St., on Tuesdays at 6:00 PM and Sundays at 10:00 AM. Group activities usually last 60-90 minutes, depending on the distance of the run/walk.
Fleet Feet's team of experienced coaches will check in with you at every training run to keep track of your progress, keep you motivated, and give you individualized coaching. Training groups will be small, so you'll have plenty of one-on-one time with your coach.
Need more coaching? Reach out to the Fleet Feet Training help desk at any time by emailing email@example.com or calling 916-442-3338.
Your 4-week training plan will provide daily assignments for running or walking (your choice), cross training, strength work, and recovery. The plan is periodized to gradually increase overall training volume while offering opportunities for your body to build back stronger, week after week.
The camaraderie of training with a group week after week will take your training to the next level. When the training gets more rigorous, you'll have the collective strength of the group to keep you moving forward. When you crush a key workout, the group will be there to celebrate your achievement. And on those early morinings when you just don't feel like getting out of bed, the training group will keep you accountable.
