Sunday 15th January. 5, 8 or 9 miles, Off – road running. Refresh the joints and work the muscles.

Don't take the lonely road to training - take the FitBitch way!

There’s not many places that offer you both the glorious landscape of sea and country in one glance. Just like there isn’t many sports that give you the opportunity to appreciate the views. Some of our Sunday running sessions take us on an off-road experience, where the scenery makes the  effort you’ll be putting in, seem much more enjoyable.

In addition to enjoying the surroundings, your muscles get a maximum workout.    The joints get a rest from the pavement pounding that road running requires and your  sense of balance gets challenged as you use your muscle fibres to stabilise your steps. Amplify the calories burnt from road running too, once you set of on the trails. Especially when there’s hill work thrown in!

This week we will be meeting in Hove Park where we will head west towards Hangleton then up into the Downs towards Devils Dyke. Look out for Deer racing ahead, but no pressure to race against them, it’s a steady run at a pace that suits whatever ability you are.

Once again there is a choice of distance. We have a shorter route of 5 miles, which will head north  towards The Dyke.

The longer run will be up to 9 miles with more hill work. The last mile is an extra loop of the Common just before turning towards  Hove Park, so if 8 miles is more suitable for you then it’s an option to miss the last mile out.

Please comment below if you are joining us and what distance you are running. Thank you.

Time: 8:30am

    Also, just to confirm that I have 3 definite charity places on offer for the Brighton Half. The charity is the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre and the team name is Higgy’s Heroes (see for more info. No minimum to raise in sponsorship, just the race cost and anything anyone can raise after that. If anyone would like to take them please just make contact as soon as possible. Many thanks.
