Post-race Training Session

The day after a race…will many people come to training?

These keen chaps continue to surprise me and put a smile on my face. Tonight’s session was another great turn out.

Here is a break down of the session:

– warm up jog
– drills incl skipping, high knees, back kicks, lunges, leg kicks
– sprinting at different efforts 60%, 70% and 80%
– burpees, plank, press ups (1 min each with 30 second recovery between each).
– 3 mins run at 65% effort x6. (recovery 1 min, 1 min, 30 secs, 30 secs, 1 min).
– cool down jog
– stretches

Group sessions work best if everyone encourages each other. Although running is very much about achieving personal goals, it is often down to the support of others that will help you achieve these goals.

If you don’t run with a club, try to run with a friend at least once a week. It is good to vary running alone and with others. You’ll help each other out and be sure to see improvements together.

Run to get faster, run to get fitter, run to feel happier.
