Run training for Beginners, Brooks 10k & Spartan Nov 4th

Hands up who loves Sunday Run club!

Have you just joined us this week and are training for the Brighton Half, or considering it? Or are you part of our club training for the Brooks 10k or Spartan Beast.

Whatever the case, we have a training run specifically geared for you this Sunday.
Beginners – whether you are a complete newbie, or you came to our Wednesday technique session this week, this run is for you.

It’s a flat, 4mile route along the sea (with a few surprises!) to give you a chance to focus on your technique. (If you find the route too long you can turn and return at any time on your own as the route is easily navigable).Coach: Rachael with RA Elspeth Hayde

Brooks 10k runners – last week was a hilly one, so this week it is about focusing on race strategy. We will be working on pace with a flat 5mile route along the seafront. Coach: Melissa with RA Mel Lankester

Spartanor those who want to go long. Get ready for a 10mile route that will take in strength and conditioning along the route, to replicate what you could face on November 18th. Think stairs, commando crawls and hills.

Climbing up from the seafront to the Downs, get ready for some surprise conditioning all the way along the route. Coach: Kate with RA Karen Russell


Where to meet: Marrocco’s, 8 kING’S eSPLANADE, Hove seafront (Parking at King Alfred centre or pay and display on the road) – Stay for a coffee after the run if you fancy!

Time: 8.30am

Drop in: £7

New Runs, new runners

And they're off!

Last weekend, saw 15 members of the FitBitch Running Club successfully complete the Brighton Half Marathon. It was an amazing achievement for all.

For some, the run was about seeing their pace run training put into practise to achieve great PBs, for others it was about running in their first ever race.

If you’re reading this and thinking ‘Oh, I could never do a half marathon,’ think again. Just ten weeks ago, many of the FitBitch Brighton Half Marathon runners started training with us having only ever run 5k. Which just goes to show what can be accomplished with the desire, the training and the support of fellow FitBitches!

If you have been inspired by watching the run and would like to be part of FitBitch Running Club, subscribe to our blog so you are the first to hear about our exciting plans for 2011.

As well as monthly subscriptions and drop in rates, we will be announcing new packages where you can sign up for both a training plan and a package of runs that will get you ready for a particular race.

Don’t worry if you don’t want to do any of the runs below, or you have your own run or training plan. You can still drop in for the benefit of training advice and to make your training more fun.
