Who are my run leads?
This course will be led by, Sophie Phoenix (CiRF), Andy Lovelock and Sean O’Leary (LiRF).
I want to register two places on the course?
Both people need to register in their own name, so we know who we have on our courses
Where and when are we meeting?
We shall be meeting at Willen Lakeside pub, (Brickhill Street, MK15 9HQ). There will be some weeks in which we shall change our starting location and day, but you will be informed of that a week before. The sessions aim to start at 18:00.
As we are following a structured training plan, we aim to support the most challenging weekday activity each week, so the supported group day can change. You will be notified in advance of changes to the scheduled group session day.
How far will I have to run?
The sessions are usually measured over time rather than distance and the sessions length shall change as the weeks progress. You will always be given notice of the change in sessions.
How far should I be able to run at the start of the course?
You will need to be able to run the half marathon distance at the start of this course.
You will work at your own pace and we shall be building up the distance. All runs will operate with a loop back process so nobody will be left behind. The only pace requirement is imposed by the 15min/mile from the MK Marathon.
Please note that there should be no medical reason which would make running dangerous for you and if in doubt please ask your GP before attending.
What is involved in the course?
The course will be introducing running skills through Interval, Hill and Fartlek sessions, through supported weekly coached sessions, as well as developing running endurance through Sunday Club running sessions.
Within the plan, we will be encouraging Yoga, Pilates and Core Training sessions.
At the end what can I hope for?
Hopefully, you will be able to complete the MK Marathon. It is advisable that you book a place for that soon after you have secured a place on this course. Remember to use the members discount on entry which is included in the club weekly mail.
Although aimed at MK Marathon, the course can support you to any Spring marathon held around the same time.
What do I need?
A pair of running trainers, some comfortable trousers and a drink. If the weather is bad you will need appropriate clothing to keep you warm/dry
For courses taking place in the evenings during October to February, you are strongly advised to have small torch or head torch.
