THE MONDAY RUNCH
Dronfield Running Club host a speed session on a Monday lunchtime.
12:15: prompt start (to fit in with peoples lunch breaks)
Junction of Shireoaks Road & Stonelow Road
Lead Contact: James Broomhead
What is it?
A weekly lunchtime get together to kick-start your week. Mainly focusing on speed work with the occasional steady run thrown in for good measure. There will be a mix of hill work, 400m efforts, 1km loops and the likes. There will also be an occasional 5km time trial to track any progress.
The session is not coached or led but we do put together a framework so we're all loosely running the same variations of a theme with some adaptability to suit your own training needs and fitness levels.
Specific session details are usually posted on our facebook group prior to departure but its a fairly relaxed affair - just a chance to do a bit of structured speed work in a group setting.
DON'T BE SCARED!
Dronfield Running Club is for everybody!
If you feel you aren't quite ready to join our club nights or have any concerns that the level and pace you currently run at precludes you from joining in then please get in touch via the contact page and we will do all we can to help, advise or allay your fears.
More often than not, people assume they're 'too slow for a running club' when that really isn't the case. We are an inclusive club; encouraging and supportive of runners of all levels but we also have a duty to our existing membership to ensure our training nights are run at a suitable level.
If you aren't quite ready to join our training nights then we will say so, but we can also help and assist you in getting to a point where you can. Honesty is the best policy and we'd rather assist prospective members to reach a level that means they can enjoy training with us rather than them just turning up and having a bad experience.
In addition to our formal club nights, members are encouraged to organise training and shared runs amongst themselves via our social media pages. Even if you aren't able to attend our training sessions, it doesn't mean you cant benefit from Membership.
More often than not, there are groups meeting to do specific speed work or interval training during the week and also long runs at the weekend. One persons tempo pace is another persons recovery pace - so even accounting for the different levels of running ability, there's usually somebody to share some miles with in our community.
SO FAR THIS WEEK...
