Goal-oriented training can help prepare for run

by Danny Carpenter

ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR

It's only the second week for the 10 Weeks to the 10K program, but it's never too early to start a training diary.

Steve Rankin, an occupational therapist at United Rehab, talked to a group of approximately 60 runners about the importance of starting a diary and planning goals on a small level.

"It's not an exact science, but I would set your goals very small," Rankin said, "and I wouldn't do a big jump."

Rankin went over with the group the training method best suited for beginners.

As the runners progress to competitive levels, Rankin said to include speed training, weight lifting and training that combines speed and regular runs.

"I basically talk to groups that are beginners and I emphasize safety," Rankin said.

Race director Carl Hatfield was pleased with the turnout and believes it will increase once area schools let out for the summer.

OTHER NEWS OF NOTE: Inaugural Greater Clarksburg 10K Run champion and world marathon record holder Khalid Khannouchi is doubtful for this year's 10K.

Khannouchi, who recently gained his U.S. citizenship but missed the U.S. Olympics team marathon qualifier because of an injury, will likely compete in the U.S. Track and Field Olympic trials.

"I heard he may run in the 10,000 meters and try to qualify for the Olympics in that event," Hatfield said.

The U.S. Track and Field Olympic Trials will be held from July 14-23 in California, while the Greater Clarksburg 10K is July 29.
