There comes a time in every runners life where they go, “you know what, I know i can jog that 5k, now i need to do it faster”. And thats not surprising, after all 5k is based on a race, and races are based around how fast you are,
Now, the chances are that you are not a genetically gifted runner, just a normal person, probably sitting down all day. So what is your race target? Here is is. To improve your own time. Dont look up the times of the elite, or the times of 20 year olds, or pluck a new time out of the air. Simply find out your current 5k time, follow an 8 week programme, then re-test it.
So, if you want to join us, this is what we are going to do. You are going to run 5k and time yourself, or meet up with us in a local park where we can act as volunteer timers for you, then, we are going to give you a running programme that may just up your running times. it will be a twice a week programme that you can do at home, or join in one of our endurance classes ( where you can learn Crossfit Endurance and POSE running techniques under the supervision of our Crossfit Endurance and POSE coaches who offer a broad range of personal experiences, the super triathlete , “stretch”, “efe” the person you would have voted the most unlikely person to run anywhere…ever, works with new terrified runners and gets them to “believe”. If he can run, so can you. and Andrew the 50 year old (occasional barefoot runner) pops along for the odd session to gee people up.
This is an experiment to see if the “new” shorter distance, higher intensity, approach actually works, so we will be encouraging you to blog your experiences and feedback!
The “how to enter” details will go up after the weekend, but we thought we would whet your appetite.
