As the temperatures rise, the schools let out, and schedules go out the window, it can be tough to maintain any routine, let alone a running one. Let us help you with two Train Like a Mother programs: Stride into Summer and Heart Rate 101. Both of them are no-pressure programs that emphasize forward motion, consistency and fun.
Stride Into Summer Challenge: Five weeks of unique, fun workouts that blend running and strength training. Most of the workouts are in the 30-45 minute range, and you rarely repeat a workout. Stride into Summer is all about forward motion, fitness, accountability and community, not about training for a specific race. The workouts are one-size-fits-all, whether you’re a walker, run/walker, or runner, and whether you’re just starting to run, coming back to it after a decade off, or just need a little push to get you jump started again.
Details for Stride Into Summer: $25 + shipping; 5 weeks; One wave: May 15-June 18.

Heart Rate 101 Challenge: If the Heart Rate Training Demystified podcast with Coach Mary-Katherine Fleming has you intrigued but you're not interested in crossing a finish line anytime soon, this 8-week plan is perfect for you. Integrating the tenets of heart rate training and hands-on coaching, we'll help you find your heart rate groove and keep you moving through the entire summer. (And if you're waffling on whether or not you want to do a fall race, you'll be in great shape to jump into race training at the end of 101.)
