IS MY RUNNING GROUP RIGHT FOR YOU?

If you want to boost your running fitness and have fun, then you should join us!

– Have you set yourself a goal of being able to run a certain distance in 2017?
– Would you like to get fitter & lose weight through regular running?
– Are you preparing for a race?
– Do you run regularly but find it a bit boring?
– Do you enjoy exercising outdoors but find it hard to go out on your own during winter?
– Do you need a boost in motivation and an incentive to push yourself out of your comfort zone?

If you have answered yes to at least one of the questions listed above, then you should join us for the Monday evening run in Central Wimbledon!

RUNNERS OF ALL ABILITIES WELCOME! Beginners and experienced runners will all be challenged.
The minimum requirement is that you are able to do a 10min continuous run.

HOW DOES A MIXED ABILITY GROUP WORK?

The sessions are specifically designed for a mixed ability group. We do NOT do a 1h continuous run, where the slowest people feel like they are holding everyone back and the fastest feel like they are not really improving their fitness at all. What we do are structured sessions with various elements: warm up drills, strength exercises, speed intervals, hill repetitions and more.

In the main part of the session we often do repetitions of a set distance. Stronger runners will aim at more repetitions, covering more distance at a higher speed and slower runners during the same time will do less repetitions, yet they also will be pushing out of their comfort zone and will be challenged at their current level of fitness. There are of course breaks to catch your breath too!

BENEFITS OF MY GROUP RUNNING SESSIONS

– a dynamic & fun form of exercise
– boost in motivation guaranteed – this will help you build consistency in the training you do on your own too
– each week a different type of workout (speed, endurance, strength)
– sessions including exercises developing agility, mobility and balance – all crucial for good running form, injury prevention and an efficient running style
– inclusive and fun atmosphere – this is not a ladies only or ultra runners only group. Run Together Wimbledon is all about the benefits of training together with various types of runners.
