Training Trial

All

Again this Thursday we are trialing the informal training groups, whilst these aren’t mandatory I’ll encourage people to book so anyone who’s running knows whom is turning up an who to run with.

I’ve created bookable informal groups in my clubhouse that you book into a group pace that you want to run at.

Once booked in the group (if you go back to the booking AT THE BOTTOM) it shows whom else wants to run at that pace, you organise yourself via FB or on the night like you normally would.

These aren’t managed by the club and all guidance for informal groups of 6 should be followed.

If it proves helpful I could role this out to the weekends as well.

Interesting Book

I’d like to draw attention to the following book, whist I only just started reading it is quite interesting!

The book is about the year in the life of training for the Beachy Head Marathon.

Having run the Sussex Endurance life myself I can imagine Beachy Head marathon is not going to be to dissimilar in elevation, and difficulty level.

Training update

After trialling our new training setup this week for Covid, I can tell the unorganised groups isn’t working.
So from next week we’ll only be doing the coached group on Tuesdays and all the guidance around that will stay the same.
I will update the other guidance to state that you should organise running on Facebook group and only meet in groups of 6 for people meeting Tuesdays (not in the coached group), Thursdays, and weekends
we’ll revisit this in a couple of weeks
Thanks for bearing with us whilst we figure out the best way to run things
