Tuesday evening run from Total Fitness
The Tuesday night run is suitable for complete novices through to more experienced runners so everyone is welcome to come along. If you have never run with a group before and are new to running then this is the ideal place for you to start.
Sally Napthen and Dave Taylor coach this run and split the group according to ability. Sally takes a group at a lower pace, which can include people recovering from injury and is suitable for novices – the only prerequisite is that anyone coming along should be able to run 3-4 miles without stopping! Some weeks are steady run sessions, whereas others work on strength or pace.
Dave’s group will average at sub 9 min/mile and is working on running technique, or developing running power with hill reps, improving pace with speed intervals or just steady runs. The faster group is paced at sub 8, and is currently taken by alternating run leaders.
The focus of all the groups is on self improvement with support from colleagues and coaches.
All abilities are welcome.
We meet at 6.15pm (ready to leave at 6.30pm) every Tuesday outside the reception entrance to Total Fitness on Liverpool Road, Chester, CH2 1AQ. For directions please click here.
Please make sure you are dressed for the weather. High visibility clothing is required for the winter evenings.
Every Wednesday evening at 6:30pm the club holds a track session in Ellesmere Port. This type of run training is excellent for increasing basic speed and educating the body in pace awareness. All runners can benefit from track sessions, no matter their ability. Up to 3 qualified coaches are on hand to supervise and control different ability groups. The coaches will always have a pace chart but you can check it out here.
The track is at Stanney Oaks running track in Ellesmere Port. For direction please click here.
Please arrive by 6.15pm to warm up and be ready to start on time.
Track sessions cost £2.50 for members and £4.00 for non-members, please pay the coach/sign attendance sheet at trackside.
Throughout the autumn and winter months there will be off road runs at various locations. Held on a Saturday morning, usually twice a month, they will be about 1:30 -2:00 duration at an easy pace with a re-grouping policy. We try to cater for all abilities but expect people to have some running experience for these lengths of time. Off road running shoes are recommended and clothing suitable for all conditions.
