Paddy’s patter

We’re finally back folks! After what seems forever, in a tough winter lockdown, it’s going to be brilliant to have our club sessions on again this week.
Hopefully this is the start of not only a great summer but a return to some form of normality.
Let’s get out there and make the most of it. I’m looking forward to seeing some beautiful running, mind!

Zones and Pacing

Easyx 1.310:2272%
Marathonx 1.0908:4583%

Here’s the science bit, all times below based on running at 8 mins per mile for a 10k. You may need to adjust the timings for your own individual pace.

Following feedback we’ve created a pace calculator to allow you to work out your target paces easily, just enter your target 10k time in the h:mm:ss format and let it do the hard work for you.
For example 45 minutes would be 0:45:00, 65 minutes would be 1:05:00

Junior Plan

We’d encourage an online P.E. class 3 times a week, where possible!
