Lots of you are starting to look forward to events later in the year maybe an Autumn half marathon or the GSR. There will be lots of opportunities to train together for all events that are coming up, I plan on having monthly “official” weekend runs where all members of RunVerity are welcome to come along and train. We organise these events so that it doesn’t matter what pace or distance you are doing, we all finish together we tea and cake; And we have a variety of locations that we use, changing these around so we don’t get bored with the same old locations.
There will be a “runner’s workshop” on Thursday 25th July at 8.15pm at 50 Mollison Rise where will be discussing how to step up to the next distance, whatever this may be for you. We share ideas on nutrition, training, trainers and basically all things running related to make the transition to your next distance is achieved as safely as possible.
Here are some of the main events that members have signed up to;
The Jurassic Coastline event is 29th September and the training starts week beginning 10th June. I plan on doing some of the weekend runs at QECP in Petersfield and also a couple of Thursday evenings.
The GSR is on Sunday 20th October and the pre-training for the GSR starts week beginning the 17th June and the 12 week programme starts week beginning 29th July. It’s a good idea to book “Pieces of Eight” which is an 8 mile run 2 weeks before the GSR on the 6th October. https://fitprorob.primo-solutions.co.uk/ps/event/PortsmouthRNLI10KandPiecesOfEight2019
If you have entered any of the New Forest events on 8th September (Half Marathon, 10k or 5k) then the training for this will start week commencing 17th June and this will also be a 12 week programme.
If you are training for Palma Half Marathon or 10k on October 13th the training will start on 22nd July, again a 12 week training programme. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further info on this. Here is the link for the event itself https://www.palmademallorcamarathon.com/english/
The weekend runs planned so far are 2nd June, 23rd June, 21st July and 22nd September. On the 11th August there is the 54321 which is a half marathon in Salisbury and Gravel Hill 5 on Saturday 17th August at QECP in Petersfield. We have use of the BBQ’s at this event at QECP so a good social event.
The tourist parkrun will be on Saturday 3rd August in Southsea.
On the 1st September we have an organised run in the morning followed by a BBQ to celebrate RunVerity’s 5th Birthday.
It is important to choose 1 goal and work towards this; all the training plans can be adapted to suit you and your lifestyle, life does get in the way sometimes and remember running is meant to be fun. My aim over the next few months is to ensure that your training is fun, safe and achievable.
