Steve & Dave’s 10k Thursday nights impro

As we approach half way in the 10k training schedule, it's time to think about putting all the hard work to the test.
We have identified a series of flat 10k races, with official pace makers, through the scenic lanes of Langley Burrell just east of Chippenham and entering won’t break the bank. The races are registered with UKA so your time will be included in Power of 10 and of course the Club Championship, (providing you wear your club vest). Follow the link to find out more about Power Of 10.

Race start time is 20:30. Free parking. Discount available for EA members and for entering all 3 races. Follow the link to enter.
Langley Burrell Fast 10k

Steve & Dave have entered the 2nd race in the series on Friday 8th July.

PS. You don’t have to be in Steve & Dave’s 10k improvers group to enter.

Good luck
Steve & Dave

10k Improvers - Heart Rate training

* New for Thursday nights.

Starting Thursday 28th April - 10k Improvers sessions - heart-rate training

Though this weekly coached training session is primarily focused on those who wish to run either a sub 55min or a sub 60min 10k, the session is open to all club members who wish to improve their 10k time or who just wish to know more about heart-rate training. 
 
Week 1, you will establish your max heart rate, which will form the basis of the training programme over the next 10 weeks or so.
 
Weekly runs will start off at 4.5 miles moving up to 10k after a couple of weeks.
 
In June/July the coaches plan to run as pace makers in a local 10k to assist the runners achieving their personal 10k goal.
 
Not essential but it would help if you have a heart rate monitor as the sessions will be more centred around heart-rate training rather than pace. 
 
For more information please speak to Steve Herring or Dave Britton
