CADENCE – Improve your cadence: Number of times your foot strikes the ground in a given time period, usually measured per minute. You will work on improving your cadence coming every Monday to the track and running with a “personalized pace cadence device” that Raquel will put on you to follow a pace while improving your cadence progressively and weekly.

INTERVALS AT THE ATHLETICS TRACK – Most of the sessions include some intervals around the track before the end of the session.
