Virtual sessions 15/17 September

Training
Hi all, This weeks virtual sessions are below. Unfortunately we can't offer a Zoom session this week. Tuesday - Decreasing intervals This session is also delivered by Suzanne in the video below. You're going to run 1 mile, followed by 1km, then 800m, then 600m and finally 400m. The aim is as the distance reduces your pace should increase. So aim for 5km pace for the 1 mile and the try to increase your pace for each interval. Have a 90 second walk/very slow jog recovery between each interval. It's a tough session, but really good to improve your 5km pace. Thursday - Hills Find a long hill. Run up and down the hill 6 time. After the 6th time have a 2 minute walk recovery. Repeat this a further…

Paul’s 29th Feb parkrun report

A big turnout of 62 Striders at the barrage on Saturday - many of whom were there to congratulate Gail Robinson. Gail completed a double milestone of 100 parkruns and 100 volunteering duties. Also instrumental in setting up the Billingham junior parkrun Gail has done everything from run directing to scanning tokens. I'm sure I speak for everyone at the club by saying a big thank you Gail for your tireless efforts in making the parkrun such a great event. We also saw Andy Johnston volunteer for the 25th time. The run itself resulted in new pb's for Kay Martin and Neil Mcgee. Kay Stokes pb'd with another amazing age grading of 85.59%. Robert Parker ran a first sub 21 minute time on his way to a pb.
