Lordshill Group F/G

Hey speedy runners,
On our running journey, we start with just a simple run. Once just a simple run is not enough, joining a running club with semi-structured training (Groups B-E) will allow you to improve rapidly. Now you need to up your game if you want to see further improvements. Key points:

  • Most likely you will want to increase your mileage. Check out the table* below to get an idea of where you should be heading for average weekly mileage.
    Units are in km. The original units are miles; however, I believe such high mileage is overkill for most of us and you are served better spending time cross-training to avoid injury.

  • You need some structured, progressive training and technique feedback. (Why not attend our coached sessions and ask for some personal feedback?!)
  • Do not neglect your cross-training for injury prevention. Strength & Conditioning (Tue sessions or the gym) and flexibility work (e.g. yoga) are vital!

Our coaches (thanks, Ben & Sari!) have put together session suggestions for the next training block. LRR Monday sessions are led by our Run Leaders, who may or may not follow the suggested session. LRR Wednesday sessions are run by our coaches and will be as described. You will have to adapt the long runs and total weekly mileage to your personal journey. If you have questions, please just ask one of the LRR coaches. 🙂
