What you Need

We are getting close to the beginning of our training together. Here is a quick list of the key things that you will need to bring with you to the sessions:

Shoes

Your shoes are the runner’s tool of trade. If it's been a while since you have changed your training shoes here are a couple of checks you can do to see if they will still be ok: 

  • Twist your shoes from top to bottom, they should feel firm. If they twist easily they may not have enough support. 
  • If your soles are worn down it's a good sign that they need replacing. 
  • If it's been years since you have bought a pair of training shoes, not is a good time to invest in a new pair. 
  • If you are going to get a new pair go to Shoe Clinic to get a foot analysis done, they will then make sure you get a pair that suits your unique foot shape. Spend a few days wearing you new shoes in by wearing them around the house or any time you are going to be on your feet. 
  • If you feel you need to see a podiatrist we recommend the team at Feet n Motion

We can’t stress enough how important important this is!


Training Gear

While we hope the weather gods deliver beautiful sunny days for every session we have to be prepared for all different types of weather and we could have unpredictable conditions ;o). We need to be ready for hot/cold/ wet/windy (4 seasons in one day even!)

Here's some of the training gear you will need:

  • While it's ok to train in normal clothes, having some clothes that are designed for sports training will help to keep you warm and comfortable when you are running. These don't have to be expensive, just look for sports fabric and warm layers.
  • A good wind breaker/training jacket will come in handy. 
  • A mat for the HIIT session (Monday mornings)
  • Beanie and gloves, sunvisor/cap - be prepared for all types of weather.
  • Layers - thermals
  • Head lamp for the dark mornings
  • Have warm clothes and a towel in the car for straight after training.

Other Items

There are just a couple more things that you will need for training success:

  • If you have a GPS watch that can give you your pace and km splits - this will be very useful.. If you don't have a GPS watch, it isn't essential but if you can invest in one, they are a  fantastic training tool. 
    Harvey Norman, Rebel Sport and other sports stores have them. Also check out sites like wiggle.co.uk, eBay or Amazon to buy one. Some of the well known brands are Garmin, Fit Bit, Timex, Polar..lots of different options. You don't need top of the line, just a basic GPS that gives you km pace and distance. 
  • You will need a watch with a stopwatch function (and one you can see easily!) as many of our sessions are time based. 
  • Always bring a full water bottle to every session. 
  • Every Saturday we go for coffee so make sure you bring some money so you can tell your stories over a nice hot cup of coffee. 

That's pretty much all you'll need over the 10 weeks we will be training together. If you do have any questions about this feel free to get in touch!
