Ref W11 : thank you Jess for choosing this week’s route.
Long : 9.1 miles
Short : 6.2 miles
6:20pm meet for a 6:30pm departure. Hi-viz is imperative please.
I’m sorry I won’t be joining you (picking Lucy up from the airport after her 5 weeks of travelling so have a good run and I’ll see you all next week.
Tuesday night training- fartlek at DPD.
*Please bring your high viz*
Meet at the leisure centre and we’ll be leaving at 6:30pm. Warm up to DPD, where the benches are.
Start off at a steady pace towards the A5. Once on the A5 run at 5k pace to the roundabout then drop to a steady pace or walk. Then back to 5k pace once you get to the 2nd roundabout and repeat for 20 minutes.
Cool down is a steady jog back to the leisure centre and stretch.
There’s not much difference between long and short routes (9 miles and 8.2 miles respectively)… for those wanting a shorter route, the ‘out and back’ route to and from Barwell town centre is just over 6 miles so hopefully there is something for everyone here.
Usual 6:20pm meet for a prompt 6:30pm departure with your hi-viz tops please!!
See you there ?
Working individually or in a group, one lap at 5k pace, one lap recovery.

6:20pm meet in the downstairs room at the leisure centre for a 6:30pm departure.
I’m sorry I can’t join you this Thursday but will be back with you all next week.
Have a great run ?
We tend to focus on ‘uphill training’, which gives us strong legs but doesn’t help our coordination. When running downhill you’ve probably noticed how difficult it is to move quickly without losing your balance. That’s because our legs ‘can’t handle’ the fast stride.
Sprinting downhill develops your coordination by forcing your legs to learn how to handle high-speed travel. This means your running speed on horizontal surfaces will increase because your peak stride rate will be more rapid (yey! ???)
30 minute Individual session
Running at 5k pace down Castle Street
Recovery – moderate pace up church walk
Optional 2 minute break at the top
After 15 minutes switch to
Running at 5k pace down Church Walk
Recovery – moderate pace up Castle Steet
TIPS AND TRICKS
– adjust your body position with a forward lean to keep you from hard heel striking.
-run softly with short strides and a high cadence.

Running clockwise, start at a steady pace, gradually increasing your pace at each corner, so that on the final straight, you are pushing/encouraging each other.

This route isn’t in the ‘big book’ so make sure you know where it goes! Anti-clockwise around Hinckley / Burbage with a few loops. The direction on the map may not be apparent so to clarify, the route heads up Rugby Rd to Burbage first before going back to Hinckley past JCC and along part of Normandy Way then returning to the Leisure Centre via Hollycroft.Penny
For those requiring a shorter route, turn left at the Butt Lane / Leicester Rd junction and head back to the leisure centre for a 6 mile route (approx).
Usual 6:20pm meet for a 6:30pm departure from the leisure centre.
Please wear hi-viz tops as it will be dark by the end of our run if you are on the long route.
