Monday 4 June – Give intervals a Go

Lead; Jonathan Clements

The club does hold weekly interval sessions on a Thursday evening but if you’ve never given it a go then this is for you! Come along for a taster session to see what it’s all about.
We will be going through the theory and principles of interval training before trying out some sessions built around the cornerstones of interval training:
– Hills
– Distance Repeats
– Pyramid / Fartlek
This will be a fun introduction that hopefully will get you hooked and coming
every week hope to see plenty of you there for a lot of laughs and maybe some hard work too!

Saturday 4th August – Outdoor core Taster

Lead; Clean Coach Katie

Hello everyone my name is Katie, also known as Clean Coach Katie. Lovely to meet you! I am a member of the Redway Runners and also a Personal Trainer.

On Saturday 4th August, I will be hosting an outdoor core taster session at Willen Lake (on the grass opposite the cafe) after park run at 10am.

The session will be for 30 minutes and ideal for runners wanting to improve their core and add variety into their training schedule. Strengthening your core will help stabilise the body when running, improve form & posture to help prevent injury and potentially even run faster 😉 who can say no to that!?

This session is free and open to all runners, ages and abilities!

Look forward to seeing you threre.
