Training week beginning 30th April

When: Tuesday 6:30pm
Where: Castle Manor school field, Eastern Ave, Haverhill CB9 9JE
If you haven’t been before head into the grounds from Eastern Ave, follow round to the car park at the very back and you will see the entrance to the fields on the left. Meet here and all sessions will start at 6:30pm.
Who: Kelly Mepham with support from Dave Edwards
What: start with some fun games to warm up. We’ll then be doing some varying length reps pyramids, ranging from 200-800m.
if you have trail shoes might be worth bringing them as it’s been so wet.
A new training plan for the summer is currently being finalised and I will post as soon as we have finished it!
When: Tuesday 7:30pm
What: Community running group – See Yusuf’s post
When: Thursday 7:00pm
Where: Leisure centre
Who: Leaders/pacers TBC
What: Club Run – this week we will be switching to summer routes!!! Hurrah! Time to head out into the countryside and enjoy the lovely surroundings. Summer routes will be posted on the website in due course. We will aim to continue with all groups doing the same route and have the same pace groups heading out.
Things to consider when we are out further a field:
Bring water if it is hot! There is less chance of getting hold of some in the middle of a field than in town!
Trail shoes may be useful especially if it has been raining – that happens now and again in England! 🙄😫 But they are not essential – it’s up to you
Please try to wear bright/hi-viz clothing
Pacers/leaders please carry a mobile phone in case of any problems
Pacers/leaders please try to stick to pace but all runners need to be aware this can be more variable off road!
Any questions please let us know. This isn’t hard-core off roading so if you haven’t done a summer route before please don’t worry – come along and enjoy Thursday runs!
Is 6:30 or 7pm too late for you to run?
You may also want to consider the small but perfectly formed 6:00pm group led by Shirley Fowler – another of our qualified coaches. They meet at the Leisure Centre each week.
The 6pm group follow this plan each session:
run between 8-11 min miles, Tuesday we do 3-4 miles ( and incorporate training in the run e.g hills or speed) Thursday is a little faster run with less stops 5-7 miles and off road in summer. All abilities are welcome to come give us a go.
