We run about 6-8miles through the town, countryside, beach or Towans, depending on conditions, at 8 to 8-30 minute mile pace (an average club runner standard), stopping every mile or two to let people catch up. In the winter months they often do structured sessions.
6 or 7 miles at a brisk 9.30 pace. Faster runners wait periodically for slower ones. Varied routes each week. Often do sessions on Hill reps, Timed circuits etc and in the Summer group planned sessions on Endurance and speed work. So structured sessions are often undertaken, especially in the winter.
- Susan-with help from Jackie and Phil
5-7 miles at 9.30/10 minute per mile pace. In the summer running through country lanes and beach/Towans – more constant uninterrupted running with emphasis on endurance and helping runners improve. In the winter running will be around the town with more structured tempo, fartlek and hill work thrown into the mix”
5-6 miles at approximately 10.30-11 minute miling, aiming to run continuously over a variety of routes, including off-road summer adventures.
- Mike (sometimes with Jon)
5 or 6 miles at 11-12 minute mile pace. For runners who can run a mile or two oftening graduating from the ‘In betweeners’ building up endurance with less stopping.
- Jean/Susie – Beginners and Inbetweeners (sometimes with Anne)
These two groups work closely together to ensure that we cater for the complete beginner and those who can run at a slow pace . If you want to start running, then this is the group for you. Come to the club on Tuesday evenings where our walk/run leaders will be there to help get you going. The group is relaxed and supportive and you will meet other members new to running. Almost all runners who start very gradually in this group are able to run continuously for 4 or 5 miles after a few months and join the ‘Inbetweeners’.
