Keeping it simple – Pace (and hills) in the park – Wednesday 17th October

20121015-130946.jpg
You too will be able to tackle hills like this with a bit of training

This week we’re mixing it up by combining two essential but simple elements of running fitness – speed and hills. We’ll start with a lap of Fartlek around Hove Park (intervals of running fast between two landmarks such as lamp posts) and then take on some off road hill repeats.

Forget the measuring tape and stopwatch, Fartlek is a fun and simple way of incorporating speedwork into your training. Train with us and see your shuffle transform into a sprint.

We’ll keep up the pace as we move on to tackle the hill repeats. Hill work improves muscular strength and cardiovascular fitness which ultimately means running quicker. The off road terrain will also help condition your ankles and stabilising leg muscles which is especially important for those of you joining us on our Sunday runs.

Meet: Hove Park Cafe
Time: 7.30pm – 8.30pm
Trainer: Melissa (07894 146016) and Kate
Drop in £5.00
