Austin Fit Jump Start Training Program

Jump Start Training Group

Not ready to jump into a half or full marathon training program?

Ease into your training with the Austin FIT jump start program. The jump start program will walk or run varied mileage (not to exceed six miles), participate in drills, core exercises, and stretches.

After week five, stay with the jump start group or move into the half or full marathon training groups. The jump start group will not exceed six miles throughout the entire fall training.

Coach Jessica

Meet your Austin Fit Jump Start Head Coach.
The Jump Start program is for a range of running goals and abilities. Whether you want to establish a running lifestyle, overcome an injury, increase from the 5K to the 10K distance, or dial things back to a strong base running, this is the group for you. As your coach, I will get to know each of you and your goals.
Your run plan may be very individualized. Plans will be updated every 4 to 6 weeks. If you stay with Jump Start through February, we will spend a lot of time building you into a strong runner, getting you ready to make the next step in your goals.
A typical Saturday may look like this;
  • Check in
  • Dynamic stretching
  • Run / possible demonstration on the run
  • Core and Strength work
  • Stretch
  • Q and A time with coach
For the first 6 weeks, we will focus on time rather than mileage. We will start off with 20 minutes and will work up to 60 minutes over the first 6 weeks. Each person may have a different run/walk ratio or may be using heart rate monitoring to determine run/walk. Heart rate monitorĀ is NOT required. Don't fret! If 60 mins is overwhelming, we can dial back your time.
This group is also a good place for anyone who needs a rest week or easier comeback after being out sick before rejoining the half or full.
This is Austin Fit'sĀ first time at this approach so feedback is very important to help me make a program that works for you. This should be a fun group where we celebrate each other's growth and accomplishments.
Looking forward to meeting you all,
Coach Jessica, RRCA Level 1 Coach
