This week, bigger groups and THE PLAN!

Evening all!

May 17th is upon us tomorrow and we don’t have to limit our running to groups of 6 any more! Yay! That will make things easier! Let’s still be covid aware though and keep a bit of social distancing going on as we gather at the start.

I’ve attached a club training plan for our York 10km (1st August) goal race in 12 weeks time. It should be suitable for everyone so please take a look, read through the notes and I hope you all find it helpful.

On Tuesday is Hills 2 or run from the club. For intervals check where your group is going and sign into or out of the spreadsheet as required:

Thursday is club run and if you are following the 10km training plan it will be important to get into a group of people who want to run at a similar speed. It would be great if there are a few willing volunteers to lead paced groups. The route will be Mallinson, route 8, so have a look at the route and don’t be shy about volunteering! The plan is suitable for the return to running group, so come on and join us guys!

Suggested groups for Thursday:
Group 1: 8 to 8:30 min miles
Group 2: 8:30 – 9 min miles
Group 3: 9 – 9:30 min miles
Group 4: 9:30 – 10 min miles
Group 5: 10 – 11 min miles

Last but not least, you can also have an off road run down the gorge if that takes your fancy. Here is a suggested route if needed:

Enjoy whatever you decide to do and have a good week,
