The light one
A low intensity 5k run wrapped around a 10min workout. This session is focused on recovery, developing core strength and stability and improving movement and flexibility.
This session offers the perfect introduction for those newer to running or coming back to it after injury or a long break from regular exercise. They are also the ideal recovery workout for those doing big miles over the weekend.
The mysterious one
Either a mid-intensity 5-7mi run with a sprinkling of bodyweight exercises targeting the legs. These sessions are focused on developing aerobic capacity and building muscular endurance.
Or higher intensity interval work, hill repeats/sprints or tempo runs plus agility and running drills. These sessions are aimed at elevating lactate threshold and improving running technique.
Or a mystery tour of new trails departing from new locations! Could be anywhere; Dunbar, Dirleton or Dubai (well...maybe not). Meeting point disclosed with a few days notice.
The putting the F in Friday one
F for a Functional strength workout; a total body workout using a mix of equipment and bodyweight exercises. This weekly session is designed to stimulate better muscular recruitment, develop a wider range of movement patterns and increase all over strength - building a platform to make you a stronger, more durable runner.
And F for a ‘Few’ down the local and a bit of banter (if you fancy).
Most Group Training sessions start in East Linton Park, beside the skate park, although we do take in the odd mystery tour with starting locations varying and announced in advance.
Trail shoes are strongly recommended and a head torch is mandatory (Sep-Mar). A small backpack or running vest is also useful to take anything you bring with you for the run.
Please dress appropriately for the (changeable) weather and bring plenty of fluids.
