Training run, building distance, Sun 4th March

A run shared is a run that feels half the distance

Come to this Sunday’s training session which is perfect for a whole range of mixed ability runners.

For those training for the BlueBell 10k or beginners who just want to join our Sunday’s runs we will have a three or five mile route to choose from.

Berlin Half Marathon and 25k runners, choose from 8miles or 10miles depending on which training plan you are following.

For beginners, there will be a slight incline but on the road to help you gain confidence and build your strength.

Five miles and beyond, we will be going off road with some hills to help you build strength and endurance. For the BlueBell runners in particular, the route has hills so it’s good to master them with the correct training now.

If you would like to see the route, you can become a friend of FitBitch Running Club on mapmyrun.com. This is only available to those who are on a package, monthly or annual subscription.

Beginners/Returners to Running Training session, Weds 15th Feb

Get ready to transform your running experience

Have you been inspired to take up running by a friend recently? Or, have you always wished you could run and lacked confidence? Or perhaps you already do run and would love to train with a group but have been put off joining other running groups who are currently doing long distances?

If this sounds like youthen now is the time to join our running group.

Whether you are merely looking for a social group to run with, or you want to start training for a 10k, half marathon or even beyond this, get in on the ground level with our beginners and returners (i.e. those who run but have not done any distance for a while, or are returning from injury) training session.

This session takes some of the elements of our Running School weeks, to analyse your foundations, posture and biomechanics. This helps us, and you understand how you can build yourself into a strong, injury free runner.

The first part of the session will be indoors to allow us to analyse your movement patterns and posture, before heading outside for a short run. If this sounds bewildering to you, and you are thinking ‘I just want to run,’ don’t worry it will all make sense.

Whatever your level, this is a session not to be missed.

Location: Flat 4, 4 St Aubyns, Hove, BN3 2TB (parking in KIng Alfreds car park, a five minutes walk away)

Time: 6.45pm

What to wear: Usual running stuff but layers so you can take them off inside.

Cost: £5 drop in – places are STRICTLY limited so you need to book in advance by leaving a comment here

Coach: Rachael, 07855 742195

Running Newbies and Returners

Become part of our friendly running group

While many of our running group are reaching the end of their current training cycle next weekend to run the Brighton Half Marathon (we will be posting final details about where to meet, etc later in the week), we are starting a new wave of training for those returning to running or starting afresh.

It means we will now be putting on weekend runs for those who are only ready for shorter runs, although this coming week this weekend training run will be on Saturday morning (as we’ll be at the Brighton Half Marathon on Sunday cheering on our runners).

So, if you are a beginner, or returning to running, now is the time to join us and start our next wave of training. This Wednesday night training will also be a good starting point.

If you are interested in joining us, and becoming part of a friendly group of female runners who constantly achieve their goals (we are currently training a group of TOTAL beginners to marathon level, some of whom had only ever run 5k before), then get in touch.

And pencil Wednesday and Saturday into your diary! More details to come.

How to prevent 3 of the most common runner’s injuries

As we enter the second half of the marathon training season, and as more runners begin to take up running for the first time, injuries are all too common.

More often or not, these could be prevented with the right stretches and strength work. But which stretches to do?

become a fan of Yoga for Runners and Sports for a guide to the three most common injuries facing runners and how to prevent them. Or if you are already suffering from such niggles, how you can deal with them.
