DRAFT OLD VERSION LIVE

An introduction to the Beginners 10-week Running programme.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE ABLE TO RUN 2.5 MILES?

There will be two meetings (not runs) in January for anyone interested in the 10 week beginners course. These are to outline the course and for any questions anyone might have. 

The start dates for the actual 10 week course can be found here

By the end of the course you should be able to run for 30 minutes (about 2.5 - 3 miles)

The course involves running and walking. The initial sessions will start with walking as the major contingent, while gradually increasing the running component as the sessions progress.

You will need to wear suitable clothing and shoes that will allow you run and walk comfortably for about half an hour. You will need to be in good health and we recommend having a medical check-up with your doctor. You must be 18 years old or over.

After the third week, we would expect you to join the running club to continue the course.

MEDICAL

  • You need to be in good general health.
  • Have a medical check-up with your doctor, to confirm your fitness to start the programme.

CLOTHING/SHOES

  • Running shoes. (these should be bigger than usual, allow thumb width at the back)
  • (To start with trainers will do for a couple of sessions)
  • Medium/thick socks.
  • Long trousers.
  • High visibility top. (pref. shower proof)
  • Thin gloves.
  • Cap, berry/beanie.
  • A small water bottle.
  • Generally speaking it is better to have several thin layers that you can remove.
  • A watch that has a stopwatch function, also a heart rate monitor is useful but not essential.

INVOLVMENT

  • We meet at Tarka tennis on a Tuesday evening at 7 pm.
  • Sessions will last approx 30 minutes, once a week for 10 weeks.
  • You ideally need to run a total of 2-4 times a week for approximately 30 minutes duration each run.

(The less runs you do, the harder the next session will be !!)
