Fall Session Signup

GTD's Fall Session begins the week of August 5, with the first onsite workout on Tuesday, August 6.
Whether you're training for a triathlon (like Tom Kinneman), a marathon, a 5K, or to maintain your fitness, the 15-week program will help you reach your goal.

Tom used the GTD winter and spring programs as part of his training to compete in the Ironman 70.3 EagleMan Triathlon on June 9 in Maryland. He was 3rd out of 43 finishers in 60 – 64 age group; 306th out of 2462, and his overall time was 4:58:11. His splits were 40:49 (swim), 2:37:49 (bike), and 1:33:25 (run). Yeah, that's a 1:33 half-marathon right after swimming 1.2 miles and biking 56 miles.

Can you do this? Maybe. Can't hurt to try the GTD training program.

Email Program Can Work for You

Many of us cannot get to the weekly onsite workouts.
Fernando's email program will give you the weekly "track" or interval session plus a schedule of tempo and long runs throughout the week to match your goal.
You may choose the email option when you sign up -- and you always have the option to come to any of the onsite sessions.
