Conditioning & Release, Weds 13th Feb

AT the BlueBell run last year

Correct conditioning & foam rolling ensures you look this happy when you run

In a change to the training plan for many of you, this week we are going to be focusing on exercises to ensure the ‘switching’ on of the correct muscles for running, as well as foam rolling for performance and injury rehab.

This session is suitable for everyone from beginners to the advanced. Before conditioning with weights or loading with speed, the foundations –  ensuring the right muscles (for most of us female runners, the glute or butt muscles as most of us know them) are firing.

This then sets the correct chain of muscle activation to help ensure injury free running, upon which strength, speed and improved  performance can be built.

And for our Brighton Half Marathon and Marathon crew,  as well as our newbies, the foam rolling element will help free your body up ready for this weekend’s race.

We will be working on all these aspects this Wednesday so please purchase and bring a foam roller with you. You can get these at SweatShop on Queens Road, Brighton and many local sports stores. (SS offer 10% off for Fitbitches so please mention  us).

The best one to get is The Grid, but a simple foam type (15cms by 45cms or 15cms by 90cms) will suffice for new runners.  (and all of you reading this thinking, ‘I’ll just go and watch and then decide if I need to buy one,’ you WILL need one and should be using it  regularly. )

Wrap  up warm with lots of layers. You will be working but it will not be the same as a sprint session.

PLEASE NOT THERE IS NO SUNDAY TRAINING RUN THIS WEEK DUE TO THE HALF MARATHON.

PLEASE COMMENT HERE IF YOU ARE COMING. IF YOU HAVE JUST PURCHASED A PACKAGE, PLEASE BRING A REFUNDABLE £5 DEPOSIT FOR A BRACELET AND TELL US YOUR TSHIRT SIZE.

Time: 7.30pm

Where: Lawns adjacent to Hove Street, next door to King Alfred Centre

Price: £5

COACH: Rachael
