How to run Faster!

Most runners do the same training week after week and wonder why they don't improve :0[
Truth is your body gets used to the same boring training and stops its adaptive processes!
Here is a plan that will catapult you into a new level of fitness!
The 4 Week Cycle
3 weeks of progressively harder training followed by a recovery week!
Here is a example;
Winter[ modern] base build
Week one;
Sessioms 1, 10 x short hill [steep] efforts
Session 2 30 mins steady
Session 3 10 mins tempo run inc 10 nins warm up and 10 mins cool dowm
Session 4 long run 45 mins
WEEK 2
15 x short hill repeats
35 mins steady
15 mins tempo
55 min long run
WEEK 3
20 x hill sprints
40 mins steady
20 min tempo run
65 min lomg run
WEEK 4
Recovery
Aim maintain fitness gained but allow the body to recover for the next level of training
6 x 20 sec  hill sprints
20 mins steady with last 5 mins fast
Steady run 30 mins

Next cycle will increase distance, efforts or both in a progression!

Christmas Torchlight 5 K Returns!

Hi Rick,
Please can you pass on the message below:-
The torchlight run returns for a one off Christmas special on Wednesday 23rd December at the usual time of 7.00 pm and location.
A fun festive gathering with appropriate red dress code if desired, limited head torches and hats available on the night together with the much coveted torchlight pen spot prizes.
I have coaxed Neil Rothwell and Nicola out of retirement for the occasion however would welcome any other non running helpers on the night.
So charge your head torches and don't miss out on this great event which I must stress is a social, run at your own risk gathering.
Cheers
Andy Hudson
