Justin’s 10k Training

10K Course began 22nd March. Not too late to add your name if you want to join. If you are interested please complete the questionnaire that can be found here and email it to me. I’ll post updates and Top Tips to the SRC facebook page. I’d also like to be in touch with you all on a 1-2-1 basis throughout the course – please reach me via WhatsApp, fb messenger or email (my address is on the SRC website).  Finally, don’t forget to sign up for the Ottery 10k race Sunday 14 May. More details of the training course can be found here. A guide for pacing when doing speed work can be found here.

Top Tip #1. Use STRIDES to improve your TECHNIQUE – a surge of power lasting 10-20 seconds. Keep your HEAD still, your SHOULDERS low & loose, stay upright but LEAN FORWARD, engage your ARMS and let your FEET ‘brush’ the surface. Better form = faster CADENCE = more speed.

Becky’s Time Trials

The Club’s Summer Time Trials are back held on a scenic, off-road course on Mutters Moor. The time trial is not a race, or doesn’t have to be and that really is the beauty of it. Ideal for all ages and abilities.
Looking forward to seeing you all, for the first Time Trial of the season, on Wednesday 5th of April at 6.45. After i have checked you all in, we will have a warm up in the opposite field & set you off accordingly, we will then send you around the coarse, which will be marked out in flour , to return and funnel you in , you will each receive a tally with a number on and you then carefully line up to give it to me in order. This is how we will work out your handicap. A map of the course can be found here. Please remember to wear trail / off road shoes & bring your own Jumper & water for after.

Looks amazing!

To the 10K Crew…looking forward to our next session on Wednesday. No more ‘Mr Nice Guy’ either as we hit the slopes at Convent Road for some hill reps! This will build on our themes of GOOD FORM and higher CADENCE and will add some LEG STRENGTH too. See you at the Club 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

10k Tip No.2 - the key to improving your speed and endurance is doing a VARIETY of DIFFERENT pace runs REGULARLY. The Club 10k sessions on a Wednesday will focus on INTERVALS but you will also need to do TEMPO runs, LONG runs and EASY runs. Get in touch for some advice on what to do... ... See MoreSee Less

I am interested in a bit of a plan ! Can you help ? How many miles are you on this week as I am taking the 6 but still want to do 10k

This Wednesday we'll keep the mileage below 6 as we're still focusing on speed and form. Probably 5 max.
