Strength, Speed & Smile Session, Weds 13th March

Even after hard pacing, we can all smile...just!

Even after the hills we can smile

Whether you are new to us or one of our regular Weds night runners, come for a technique and speed session on hills this week.

Hill training is vital for helping to improve strength, speed, running technique and mental focus. And let’s face it, master the mind and you’ve won half the battle when it comes to hill training.

Don’t worry if you have never run with us before, we will adapt it for you. But for those who are part of our regular group this is a must-have session particularly if you have signed up for the BlueBell Run.

And for our marathon runners, it is good to do something totally out of your usual slow runs to help fire you up and feel great again. You can easily drop one of your pace sessions this week if you do this session instead.

Location: Peter Pan Playground, Madeira Drive (there are parking metres before 8pm so make sure you bring some change)

Time: 7.30pm

Drop in: £5

Coach: Kate

Training Run for all, Sunday March 18th

Hurrah no hills!

If you can run three miles or more, then this training run is for you.

This Sunday we will be combining all our running groups, beginners, BlueBell 10k runners, and those training for the Berlin Half Marathon and the Brighton Marathon groups.

Don’t panic, we will obviously all be running different distances but we will set off together on a beautiful scenic, flat (yes, really) route.

If you are a member of our club, have subscribed to a running package or paid a prescription you can become a friend of FitBitch Running Club on http://www.mapmyrun.com and look at the route for yourself.

Download the app to your phone and you can get the route sent to you.

For our Berlin runners, this week’s run will be a shorter 7-8miles to help us consolidate the endurance we have built so far, ready to go up distance again next week. And for those who are a bit behind, it is the perfect time to catch up.

Beginners, there will be a 3 mile route (returning on your own but it’s easy) while those training for the BlueBell go for six miles.

Marathon runners? It’s a biggie. 19miles but no gradient to help you get into your rhythm, and the support of everyone else running alongside you at the beginning.

Some of our new runners may be thinking ‘I could never run that far,’ of our marathon group.  Yet some of them could only run 5k a little over a year ago.

So come and celebrate women’s running and be part of our inspirational running crew.

The Marathon & Berlin group will be taken by: Kate & Rachael

BlueBell: Melissa

Location: Meet at the footbridge on the Shoreham beach side
