Welcome to week 8 of the 14 Week Cheltenham Running Club Programme!

Summer School Holidays have started and I’m away on holiday but we'll have senior members leading the sessions and all the details you need are set out below.

The weather is looking milder which should make your outdoor exercise feel easier, especially if you took on the heat last week. 

parkrun Restarting on Saturday!

parkrun is back with a new route on the West side of Pittville park. 

Click here to check out the route...

You can attend any given weekend but on Saturday the 14th of August our Couch to 5k members will take on parkrun as their first ever 5k running event.

It's also a great time for members to take on a fun, free 5k event together.
Walker's and injured runners, it'd be great to have you along to walk the route or marshal.
Can you make it along?

Cheltenham's Half Marathon and 10k

Last week I reminded runners that Cheltenham’s 10k and Half Marathon were only 7 weeks away, but now there’s only 6!

We’ve now created Sunday routes which closely follow sections of the 10 and 21k routes. 

Click here and let us know if you'd like to run, walk, support or marshal on the day...

Tuesday 27th July Session Details 

Non-stop runners meeting at the Prestbury Park Playing Field 

Warm up with the standard 30sec fast, 60 seconds back for 5 reps followed by our standard stretches. You can do this on the grass, out of the way of those already using the track. 

For the main set we’re back to 400m fast but this time with but 1min 20 second slow jog x 9-11reps. I’ve provided a range as those in the slower groups will take longer to run each rep.

Recovering should be a slow jog where possible. A jogging recovery means you cannot afford to run too fast on the 400m runs.

Below you’ll find a target speed to aim for in the first half of your workout. If you’re feeling good in the second half then you’re welcome to speed up. 

Here are some details specific to your group:

7s complete 9 reps aiming for 8kph on the fast periods

8s complete 9 reps aiming for 9kph on the fast periods

11s complete 11 reps aiming for 12kph on the fast periods
