"This is a terrific program for the novice and the picturesque setting of Mansfield Crossing makes the training all that more enjoyable," explained Ms. Carroll. "The program starts by incorporating longer periods of walking with shorter periods of running. Each week, participants will do a little more running and a little less walking - and at the end of 9 weeks, they'll be ready to run a 5K."
