Well the clients from Team Rogue Kettlebell Fitness rocked the Heritage Half Marathon and 5K! We had different people running--some who had never run and some looking to break PRs. Everyone trained really hard both in-and-out of the gym. We used kettlebell strength and conditioning in classes, and the clients ran and trained on their own following my programming. The results were AWESOME: Not only did everyone finish, but everyone beat their goals.
Some members of the 1/2 Marathon Team before the race: O-Dark-30.
It is just a testament to the dedication and discipline that was exhibited during the last few months. It goes to show that with proper training and coaching, ANYTHING is achievable. ANYTHING!!! It is also a testament to how kettlebell training can be used for any kind of protocol--from strength training to supplemental conditioning for races and such. My clients all made major gains in their times and distances; kept up a base level of strength; and ran injury free for their training.
More members of the Team huddling to stay warm.
