Back from 2 years out of Running to Crush the Cheltenham Half Marathon
I wanted to get back into running after a break of 2 years. I set myself the Cheltenham half marathon in Oct as my target. The club got me going again and they are so welcoming and inclusive. Conor gives great advice. I thoroughly recommend the club and am constantly telling friends about it.
One of the Best Clubs in Cheltenham
It is a very good club for those beginning to run whatever age you are. There is a very friendly atmosphere to encourage people to reach their goal. This is one of the best running clubs in Cheltenham.
I used to run in my younger years when I was in the RAF and tried again about 6 years ago with another running club but unfortunately did not enjoy it and gave up. Having had a recommendation from a previous work colleague and friend, Tina Sawle, I joined Cheltenham Running Club in January 2019.Age is not a barrier, nor is fitness level. I am now 57 years old and having started on the Couch to 5km programme, I successfully completed the Cheltenham Parkrun in June 2019. That was it, I was hooked and I joined the Summer Training Squad to continue my journey.I suffered a knee injury which set me back a little and I missed the Cheltenham Challenge 10km in August. However, with the support of physio, advice from Conor and other members of the Club, I was able to build up strength and get going again. I am amazed at how much I have improved from those early days when I thought I would never run 1km without stopping never mind 10km!I have now gained confidence and recently completed my first official 10km in the Worcester City event on 15th September.The members of the club are so friendly and supportive, I couldn’t have done it without them.
"improving my speed and endurance in a careful and gradual way..."
I highly recommend Conor's training squads. I've been a keen occasional runner for a few years, and had run a few 10ks and half marathons. This year I was determined to get some structure in my training and see what I could achieve at the Cheltenham Half with a proper training plan. I hadn't done much training in the months before joining Conor's programme and was pretty unfit. I've found the structure of the training plan to be excellent in improving my speed and endurance in a careful and gradual way over several months, without risking the injuries I've had in the past when I've suddenly increased mileages. The combination of the interval runs with their lung-busting fast kilometers, good paced tempo runs and sensibly paced long runs has transformed my fitness. The improvement in performance has been really good too - I'm running 18ks at a faster pace than I ran a 5k at the start of the programme, and have beaten my 10k pb from several years ago. What I find amazing is that I now think of going out for a 10k as a short run! Being part of a squad really helps with motivation too, when you might otherwise find an excuse not to go out for that long run in the British rain or holiday heat, and Conor's support and advice has been great as well. I'm looking forward to the Cheltenham Half, and continuing to get much more out of my running.
New Member Success
I began running with CRC about 6 weeks ago and it has been one of the best things that i did. I have made some great friends and feel supported 100% by head coach Conor. The club is sociable and welcoming for new members.
"a cohesive, supportive group feel"
The Summer Training Squad Facebook group has been a really useful support. It’s encouraging seeing the different runs that members have posted and everyone supporting each other to congratulate after a completed run and also boost each other when the runs haven’t gone quite so well. Conor follows up either online, by phone or in person at club runs when people have found a run difficult and he adapts individual programs when necessary. Even though people have different individual programs due to their chosen targeted events there is still a cohesive, supportive group feel. Definitely a way of keeping people motivated to improve through the support of a friendly running community.
