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.

My Delicious Dart photo diary. I missed the ice cream, coffee and flapjack stops, battery ran out on the phone. A beautiful day and amazing costumes. In memory of Sam. ... See MoreSee Less
Fantastic photos and Sam would approve of the food and drink but would have been less keen on the hills!
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
Not sure if you are selling this!
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.
I also missed out at the start the Granola, Goat's Yoghurt and milk and the Carrot and Orange juice to get you prepared for what was to come. ... See MoreSee Less
