This weeks quick tip: 

'If you have a 'bad' session, one that you struggle or find hard, don’t give up.
They won’t be all the same, move on. Your next run may even be your very best.
One bad day won’t make them all bad days.' – Wendy McBurnie

PLUS: Circuit Movements - As part of your Club10k programme you do a coach-lead body weight strength circuit at the start of each session: Download the Circuit Movements (PDF)

There are 3 different programme levels to choose from: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
 

Choose a level that feels right for you at your current ability. We don't mind if you change levels after the first couple of sessions if you feel it is too comfortable or too challenging the key is to work at a level that is challenging you a bit but so you are achieving at every session. 

Roll Calls and On Time Starts

You know we always start on time, we don't wait!
When you arrive at the session please "check in" with the coach taking the session roll call.
It's important you do this at every session. 

Bring a watch

You will need a watch with a stopwatch function as some of your runs are based on time, if you have a GPS watch these are a great tool to keep you wise to your paces. 
 

Bring a headlamp

It's dark in the mornings so please bring a headlamp with you to each session for safety purposes - so you can see but also so you can be seen by others in the park (scooters, cyclists in particular!).  
 

Keys & Gear

We will look after your car keys at each session any other gear is your own responsibility. 

Inspiration

A simple question...why do you run?
