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)

Stunning Sunday run for Brooks 10k & Amsterdam, Sunday 29th Sept

Beauty and the beast of trail running, a hill to get up but rewarded with a downhill

Beauty and the beast of trail running, a hill to get up but rewarded with a downhill

Get your autumn running legs on the go with this beautiful 3mile coastal route, over a mixture of terrains with some flat and undulating hills. Aimed at those training for the Brooks 10k, it is open to newcomers as well as those on our Brooks packages. With this route, you can always turn and return on your own if you feel you’ve bitten off more than you can chew.

For our Amsterdam and Royal Parks Half Marathon runners (or those who are regular long distance runners) we have a 13 mile route although for those who are a little behind in their training, there is the option to meet us later and do 10miles. You will need to comment here if you choose to do this.

This longer route is a mixture of ups and downs but is a great confidence boosting run with a lovely downhill section that helps you to get your rhythm and feel strong.

While we will try to accommodate newcomers and regulars alike, these longer distance runs of 10 and more miles are NOT suitable if you can not demonstrate gradual mileage build up recently. If you have been injured and then upped your mileage please email us first before booking.

We will be offering pace groups of between a one hour 45 and 2 hour 10 half marathon time on this 13mile run (that’s on a flat – don’t panic!)

Location: Meet Tesco car park Rottingdean

Time: 8.20am for strict 8.30am departure – please note those who wish to run 10miles can meet us here at 8.50am when we should be on our return through the park to continue the remaining 10miles (please comment here if doing 10miles as well as booking online)

Coaches: Rachael & Karen on Long, Melissa on short

Please pay online – no payments on the day will be taken – £10 drop in pay HERE

Coming up THIS WEEK – our Run Summer season!

IMG_2770

DON’T miss our next intake for our summer season of running.

This week, we start our 8 week ‘Power Your Pace’ groups training for the Bacchus Half, Bristol Half and Firle Half starts. You will need to be able to run between 7.30 and 9min miles on a sustained flat to be part of this group and must be able to already run 6miles comfortably.

You may drop in on this group BUT you must show some commitment to the course and pay for some Sunday runs. There are various options, including a half package of Sunday runs to be used at any time during the course.  All courses include the Pace workshop on Wednesday.

Book here for the Power your Pace Half Marathon

If this group is not right for you, don’t fear we have a 12 week to Half Marathon (to coincide with the Royal Parks Half Marathon and the Mizuno Amsterdam Half Marathon for those joining us in our international trip) which starts Weds 31st July (we will be having a shorter course for these half marathons but it starts at 8miles).

Again, you MUST book at least part of some of these Sundays (a half package is available) to be able to attend.  Book the Amsterdam or Royal Parks Half Marathon package (starts at 4miles) here

If you do not book a course, we will be offering five mile social runs as a drop in where we have coach availability.

So, don’t miss out on new groups starting. Questions? Email runningclub@fitbitchbootcamp.com or call Rachael 07855 742195

ANNUAL MEMBERS please tell us which course you wish to do.

 

 

 

 

Spring into running, Sat 13th April, 8.30am

Spring into running

Spring into running

Get your Spring running season on the go this Saturday (usual weekend run is on Sunday except for this week) with our training run for beginners who would like to train for the Heroes 10k – or just want to train for fun.

And don’t miss our ‘Escape & Chase’ special run for those training for Tough Mudder or the Bluebell 10k and 10miler.

All runs are open to everyone even if you have not been before as drop ins  at £10 although they are better value if you purchase a package, which include the cost of the runs and a complimentary training plan.  (except TM).

If you buy a package and can’t make a Sunday run, you can use it at our Yoga for Runners classes on Monday evenings, 6pm.

Routes this Saturday:

Our beginners to 10k run will be 2.5mile flat run along the seafront.

BlueBellers have a final post race run of 6 miles with a steady uphill and a downhill all the way back.

Tough Mudder crew (anyone like to join our crew training for this contact rachael 07855 742195) are on for a five mile run.

But there is a twist…both BB & TM groups will be running together but when the five mile crew turn early, their task will be to increase their pace on their return to avoid being caught. Bluebell runners on six miles, your job is to catch them.

This will help everyone work on their pace and give this week’s training run more focus. No one will get left behind so don’t worry if you are a slower runner, although we will be encouraging you to join in the ‘hunt’ or the escape!

PLEASE COMMENT HERE IF YOU ARE COMING AND FOR WHICH RUN.

Location: Corner of St Aubyns South and King’s Esplanade (by the trampolines on Hove seafront)

When: Saturday, 8.30am (please arrive before this time as this is when we will leave)

Parking: Seafront metres or King Alfred Centre car park

Price: £10

Coaches: Rachael & Kate

Ambassadors: Elspeth and Melanie L
