Pacing Guidelines for Monday Night Training Sessions (Updated May 2015)
Please note that these are guidelines – depending on the changing ability of current runners and the ability of new members this may change and will be reviewed by the Group
It’s worth spending a bit of time considering whether you’re running with the most appropriate group on a Monday evening. If you are consistently near the front or back of your group, it may be time to consider trying a new one.
We appreciate that there are many different reasons why people run – some people enjoy the social aspect of running, whereas others want to train hard to improve their speed.
We’re hoping that everyone will be making progress, but there is no shame in dropping down a group.
