I started running in my mid 20’s to lose weight as I was suffering from low back pain and pre-hypertension. Almost a decade later and 70-80 pounds lighter, I decided to run my first marathon when I moved to Houston and did okay for my first marathon, given that I trained alone. The next year, I joined RHC and have run 3 more Houston marathons with them. I have improved by marathon time by more than 30 minutes over these years. More importantly, I have found a very supportive running community and have made friends for life. We run together and support each other year around and not just during the August- January training season.
Hills and Tempo workouts are a great way to improve your aerobic performance, increase endurance and strengthen leg muscles, which helps to improve stride length and speed. When combined with the Tuesday track workouts and the all important Saturday morning long runs, you can rest assured that you are getting the most comprehensive training program to reach your running goals!
