Marilyn Arsenault leads new class at PISE

Run Training with Marilyn is a nine-week program, starting Saturday

Elite runner Marilyn Arsenault will lead a new running program at Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence, beginning this month.

Arsenault’s popular Mindful Strides clinic is returning, with the addition of a new training program to help runners get motivated for spring running events.

PISE’s inclusion of running programming into its services is integral to the track project currently underway, with the focus to establish a much needed “hub,” not just for elite athletes but for recreational runners in the region.

Run Training with Marilyn is a nine-week program, starting Saturday (Jan. 10), that will teach the fundamentals of training such as pacing, rest and recovery.

The beginner Mindful Strides clinic starts Jan. 12 for six weeks with the aim of teaching healthy running to reduce the risk of injury and to make running more enjoyable.

Through hands-on guidance and verbal cues Arsenault leads participants through drills and exercises that will build strength and develop an efficient running stride.

Phase 1 of the track, which is now completed, offers a significant training zone adjacent to the PISE building overlooking the field that is utilized by athletes, students and PISE members at Camosun College.

Fundraising for the track is still underway and a ground breaking for the second phase of the fully accessible four-lane, 400-metre track is planned for the May.
