Group Running Programs

Turning Ordinary Runners Into Champions

Join in on the fun and come run with CSR. Our team has several group running opportunities per week. If you are looking for a group that enjoys running thoughout the year, you have found your team.


 Rock n Roll finish for CSR

You can hook up with some triathletes or marathoners of all abilities on a long social run. Or come out and challenge yourself at a group interval session coached by one of the CSR coaches. Interval training is not just for elite runners. We all must do these sessions to become better runners.

There is nothing more special than having another 15 athletes persevering through a 12 X 1 mile repeat session. Is this something you are prepared to do yourself? If not, you certainly are not reaching your potential.

Make the change, come train with a committed group that has fun but remain serious about becoming the best they can be.

Typical Training Week for Runners

Day Time Distance Location Start
Tuesday 6pm start Long Intervals Crescent Heights DownTown (Spring/Summer)
Tuesday 8pm start Track Session Mount Royal University (plus core conditioning and plyometrics)
Thursday 12noon start Short Run/Stairs YMCA Eau Claire Downtown
Saturday 9am start Long Run Mount Royal University or Location TBA for group Trail Runs
Sunday 10am start 3-6 Hours This day is reserved for fun activities such as hiking or snowshoeing.

All CSR athletes work hard and try to attend all training sessions. The closer you follow the CriticalSpeed schedule, the better the results. CoachCal schedules all the swim, bike, run, body conditioning, mini and full training camps to ensure maximum fitness development without sacrificing health and daily energy. Not all athletes are capable of attending every camp or weekly training session, CoachCal will outline the MUST DO training sessions and help you organize your time. Daily exercise prescription is designed base on the training objective, which includes compensation for residual fatigue from previous training sessions and Team's overall fitness. This is the best approach to maximum development.

Each month builds on the previous. Modifications to the training schedule and volume are made to athletes joining mid program, but to get the most value from upcoming camps, it is best to start early. Speak with CoachCal to discuss your race season and recommended training start date.

The Key to the CSR Program

The key to CoachCal's program and what could be the single most important factor when training for endurance events is "controlled integration and strategic progression of ALL disciplines with forced periods of rest and rejuvination both physically and mentally".

CoachCal, who will see you regularly at group training sessions, has created the entire program being sensitive to the interrelationship of each and every training session. For example, because the entire triathlon program is INTEGRATED, he ensures that after a hard run session, the following day will be a recovery swim with maybe some deep water running. Or there might be a deliberate bike focus one week and then a strategic rest week the next, all with the perfect plan for maximum results. With ONLY ONE COACH controlling every workout, there are no mistakes and maximum benefit for your time. With over 15 years of coaching multisport and Elite athletes, the CSR program is proven and guarantees to bring you results, whether that is just finishing a triathlon or marathon to qualifying for Hawaii or Boston.
