Training and Events

Notfast Running Club – Training Plan

Tuesday training options include effort and steady sessions. Thursdays will have effort and steady options. Trainers will rotate around the sessions to give them some variety too

All training sessions are suitable for runners of all abilities – you don’t need to be a fast runner to join any of the groups. The aim of the “efforts/speed” sessions is for everyone to increase his/her own effort over usual steady pace, so your speed relative to other runners is not important – you won’t be left on your own.

Please let Netty have your feedback (positive and negative!) and any suggestions for training sessions so that future training can be tailored to suit everyone in the club: nettyfred@yahoo.com

Please note: – Training sessions shown in red start from where they say.

Tuesday sessions will start at Tom Mann Pavilion for efforts and steady options and J&P. For Beacon hill work please meet in Timico carpark on Cafferata way.

10k sessions start at 7pm prompt.

Thursday sessions will be from Flowserve.

Friday track sessions (every fortnight) are at Newark Sports and Fitness Centre/YMCA on Bowbridge Road.

Please note there is a new session on a Thursday called Progressive Training. This is
designed for runners who have a 10k PB of under 1 hour and is designed to help these runners to improve their performance in more tailored sessions. These have been trialed over the last few weeks and have gone down well. If your 10k PB is under 1 hour, you are more than welcome to attend this session.

A new 5k-10k development course will commence on Tuesday 21st January with sessions twice a week for 10 weeks. Open to anyone at any speed, all welcome! It’s a great follow up to Joggers & Plodders and R2R, or anyone that would like to join us on an ad hoc basis. We will welcome anyone who wants to join us, for the whole course or as and when, the more the merrier! Routes to be confirmed nearer the time. Any questions please ask Gill gillgoode@hotmail.co.uk

CROSS COUNTRY

The East Midlands Cross Country series is run at different venues in Nottinghamshire on 4 different Sundays during the winter. The courses vary and will challenge you in different ways, it may be hilly and/or muddy, and you may have excess water to run through, if you are really lucky you will get the opportunity to run through snow! Theevents are approx. 5km for females and 10km for males. You don’t have to be fast to take part, being part of a team is far more important. You don’t have to run all ofthem, just join in when you can!
All events start at 11am and your entry will be paid for by NOTFAST RC. If you
complete the full series you will be awarded a memento from the club at the next awards ceremony. Interested? Please let us know on the NOTFAST XC Facebook page or contact Kim Etherington-Bates on Facebook or kae1990@hotmail.co.uk
