Tempo & Technique, Weds 10th April, 7.30pm

Why? Because it boosts your mood...and your butt too

Why? Because it boosts your mood…and your butt too

We will have two training sessions this week, one for those begs-intermediates training with us for the 10k Heroes Race. And another for our current groups, or those experienced runners who just want to get out and run.

It doesn’t matter what your standard, what your fitness level, nor your speed. Just come and join us.

Our beginners group, who book our 10k package (although you are welcome to pay a drop in price) will be working on running technique, core strength and then some running intervals.

Meanwhile for our experienced runners and those training for BlueBell or the marathon on Sunday, this will be a tempo session (keeping it in check for marathon runners).

Working on tempo, or stamina training, will improve your ability to run at a steady and moderately hard pace over a particular distance.

It will improve your anaerobic system and your body’s ability to deal with that shaky, jelly leg syndrome caused by lactic acid.

You don’t need to bring anything but yourself – and £5 if you are paying a drop in price.

PLEASE COMMENT HERE IF YOU ARE COMING, AND TO WHICH SESSION SO WE CAN ENSURE WE HAVE SUFFICIENT COACHES.

Coaches: Rachael & Melissa

Drop in: £5

Time: 7.30pm

Location: Lawns adjacent to Hove Street South, parking King Alfred centre

 

Training Run for all, Sunday March 18th

Hurrah no hills!

If you can run three miles or more, then this training run is for you.

This Sunday we will be combining all our running groups, beginners, BlueBell 10k runners, and those training for the Berlin Half Marathon and the Brighton Marathon groups.

Don’t panic, we will obviously all be running different distances but we will set off together on a beautiful scenic, flat (yes, really) route.

If you are a member of our club, have subscribed to a running package or paid a prescription you can become a friend of FitBitch Running Club on http://www.mapmyrun.com and look at the route for yourself.

Download the app to your phone and you can get the route sent to you.

For our Berlin runners, this week’s run will be a shorter 7-8miles to help us consolidate the endurance we have built so far, ready to go up distance again next week. And for those who are a bit behind, it is the perfect time to catch up.

Beginners, there will be a 3 mile route (returning on your own but it’s easy) while those training for the BlueBell go for six miles.

Marathon runners? It’s a biggie. 19miles but no gradient to help you get into your rhythm, and the support of everyone else running alongside you at the beginning.

Some of our new runners may be thinking ‘I could never run that far,’ of our marathon group.  Yet some of them could only run 5k a little over a year ago.

So come and celebrate women’s running and be part of our inspirational running crew.

The Marathon & Berlin group will be taken by: Kate & Rachael

BlueBell: Melissa

Location: Meet at the footbridge on the Shoreham beach side
