Wednesday 18th December last training session of 2013

It's Christmas!

It’s Christmas!

It’s almost Christmas and our last training session of the year. We’ll be bringing some festive fun to a hill workout this Wednesday.

The session will help boost the muscles that engage during running, the leg muscles and the core muscles. The quadriceps, calves, and hamstrings will be tested to a level to help improve your running performance. If this doesn’t sound like fun then you’ll be surprised how we can disguise a thorough workout with a Christmas theme. You’ll have to wait until Wednesday to find out what Santa has in store!

TIME and MEETING POINT: Madeira Drive. Outside Peter Pan playground at 7.30pm till 8.30.

COACH: Kate 07702 983744

Price: £5 drop in payable online in advance. If you have booked a course, please still book in for your session. click here

Resilient runners, Wednesday 4th December

Don't hold back with the training!

Don’t hold back with the training!

In order to become a better, more resilient runner, it’s important to also train the front and transverse planes of movement. Confused? That’s why we are here. Wednesday will once again focus on strength and conditioning that can benefit runners in numerous ways and help prevent injury.

The session will be in circuit formation and will involve some bodyweight exercises so bring a mat if you have one. We remain thorough on coaching correct technique so it’s still suitable for any one who hasn’t attended our sessions before.

MEET: Outside the lifeguard hut (corner of Hove Street and parking at King Alfred).

TIME: 7.30 -8.30 pm

COACH: Kate (07702 983744)

Trail running and sea views.

Trail running and sea views.

Pinch, punch first day of the month…enjoy your spectacular run with us this weekend on a run that will go from tarmac to off-road, and from flat to hills.

This 5mile run is the first of our off road route to help build distance and strength.

We are operating a new system on ALL off road routes where you will be buddied up with someone of your own pace, who you must remain with throughout the run. We will match you on the day (please note there will also be a turn and return policy in place which we shall explain on the day).

Enjoy the flat, tarmac path along the Undercliff heading out towards Rottingdean to focus on your cadence (er, or Sunday chat!) before heading inland and up!

This route is NOT suitable if you have not been training with our half marathon group. You are welcome to come in as a drop in member only if you have recently run this distance.

Location: Brighton Marina Asda Car Park (please bring money for parking)

Time: 8.20am for a strict 8.30am start

Coaches: Rachael and Tor

 

Seafront start to half marathon training. Sunday 24th November.

Share the experience.

Share the experience.

Whether you’re after a social run or your Brighton half marathon training has started, our Sunday route this week is a flat seafront 4 mile run. This distance is the perfect starting block for your training and by keeping it flat it will allow you to focus on the pace you anticipate to run the full distance at. Even if you are one of our regular runners and you have been running longer distances recently, keeping the mileage less and building up again will help your body recover for further training. Plus it’s a good one for a fast, flat run.

Our half marathon training runs are a great way to find your running buddy and share the experience with new or old friends. Being part of the FitBitch community offers fantastic camaraderie and support during the training and on the day of the running event.

MEET: outside Marroccos cafe. King’s Esplanade. Hove.

TIME: 8.20 am for a pre run brief. Run starts at 8.30 prompt.

Coach: Kate (07702 983744). R/A: Tor.

Price, £10, bookable online only.
