Taper, Hills and Social, Sunday 9th October

The end goal! Cream Tea House

Whether you are just starting out and looking to build your distance, or you are part of the FitBitch Run Club heading to Palma next week for the 10k and Half Marathon, this Sunday’s run is for you.

For those doing the half marathon next week (or anyone else who wants to build their distance with a longer run) we will be doing 12.5kms. At this stage, NO ONE doing Palma should be going over this distance as we are in the taper phase of training. This is as important as the last 12-16 weeks of training. It allows your body and muscles to be in the perfect condition for race day.

10k runners and first timers to our Sunday runs (unless you are already conditioned to run long or the 10k lot want to go longer) join us in our shorter 6km run. It does have hills so it will add another dimension to your training.

Whichever route you decide upon please COMMENT HERE so we know to expect you. Please read on below for information about where each group will meet and time as they differ.

For all who are interested we will head to Rottingdean for a recovery cream tea (well, it’s protein and carbs right?!) after the run at The Trellis, Rottingdean High Street.
They serve savoury slightly less calorific stuff too!
