What Distance Are You Training For?
Truly a Great Club to be a Part of
I started January 2017 with my son, its the best thing we did. I am very grateful to Conor and the members for all their help and support. Truly a great club to be a part of.
Friendly People and a Good Atmosphere
Great club, supportive and inclusive. Very good for beginner runners. Friendly people and a good atmosphere on training sessions. Would recommend to all
"improving my speed and endurance in a careful and gradual way..."
I highly recommend Conor's training squads. I've been a keen occasional runner for a few years, and had run a few 10ks and half marathons.
This year I was determined to get some structure in my training and see what I could achieve at the Cheltenham Half with a proper training plan. I hadn't done much training in the months before joining Conor's programme and was pretty unfit.
I've found the structure of the training plan to be excellent in improving my speed and endurance in a careful and gradual way over several months, without risking the injuries I've had in the past when I've suddenly increased mileages.
The combination of the interval runs with their lung-busting fast kilometers, good paced tempo runs and sensibly paced long runs has transformed my fitness. The improvement in performance has been really good too - I'm running 18ks at a faster pace than I ran a 5k at the start of the programme, and have beaten my 10k pb from several years ago.
What I find amazing is that I now think of going out for a 10k as a short run! Being part of a squad really helps with motivation too, when you might otherwise find an excuse not to go out for that long run in the British rain or holiday heat, and Conor's support and advice has been great as well.
I'm looking forward to the Cheltenham Half, and continuing to get much more out of my running.
Couch to 5k Success
Learning about pacing and intervals has completely changed the way I run. I know it is important to run the best way for me and to not compare my journey to anyone else's. I would like to thank Conor and the members of the club for their continued support, I couldn't do this without you!!
Transforming Belief and Ability
I have gone from being not able to run to the end of my road & thinking running is not for me, to believing in myself thanks to Conor & the fabulous members of the CRC...
