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

Wednesday 9th January – build up strength as a runner.

A strong runner doesn't only train on their feet.

A strong runner doesn’t only train on their feet.

Injury can cause havoc with your training if you do not train safely and effectively. To help prevent this, incorporate strength and conditioning work into your regime. The session will feature exercises that will:

  • Work on glute strength, proprioception and balance to get the glutes firing well and improve running performance.
  • Help to balance out quad and hamstring muscles.
  • Build strength in calves, glutes and thigh muscles. This will help reduce heel striking (stronger calves) and improve knee tracking.
  • Increase strength in hip muscles to prevent hips dropping.
  • Build up on core strength.

Don’t wait until injury has crept up on you – keep your body strong and conditioned so you can improve rather than rehabilitate. Full and half marathon runners, make sure you get some strength and training in before your mileage increases. New to running? Build up on your strength from the very beginning.

Location: Hove Promenade, bottom of Hove Street next to the lifeguard hut.
