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)

Strength and conditioning for all abilities. Wednesday 28th August.

How will strength and conditioning benefit my running?

Strength and conditioning is exercise that allows the body to work with less stress during running. You will notice an improvement in all other areas of your fitness program. If you are just starting out, you may notice how running is difficult and your body doesn’t respond that well to some of the movements. When you begin conditioning, you allow the body to open up and work more easily during running.  Strength and conditioning will reduce your risk of injury, improve bone and joint health, assist in post workout muscle recovery, increase flexibility, decrease muscular soreness, improve both muscular and cardio endurance, and will just overall improve your running level.

MEET: Hove Park playground.

TIME: 7.30 -8.30pm

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

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.
