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

 

 

Hill interval training. Wednesday 9th October.

Reaching new heights

We’ve just had a fabulous Fitbitch weekend of running and there’s plenty more to come.  Next up is the Amsterdam half marathon followed by the Brooks 10k. Whether or not you are training for one of these events our Wednesday sessions are suitable for all levels of runners. This week it’s a hill session which benefits all runners, even if you’re training for a flat race.

Hill running improves the strength and endurance of the quadriceps, hip flexor and hip extensor muscle groups—so the increased ability of these muscle groups to resist fatigue (lactic acid) shows through in the latter stages of races. You’ll slow down less, improving your race times or completing a race more comfortably. Whatever your goal is, you’ll reap the benefits if you include hill training in your programme.

MEET: Peter Pan playground (next to yellowave). Madeira Drive.

TIME: 7:30 – 8:30 pm
