Tempo Tuesday!

Tonight at Kaizen Run Club it’s all about TEMPO: Tempo runs are an excellent way for runners to build speed and strength. They’re runs that are done at a steady effort level and help you develop your anaerobic or lactate threshold, which is critical for running faster. 🙂 See more info on Tempo running here:http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/general/the-perfect-tempo-run/3176.html

Tonight’s run will be:

5 min steady warm up
5 min a bit faster
15 mins tempo (comfortably hard)
5 min recovery
5 min cool down

We’re going to run along to Glasgow Green then in and around the Green (3 times) and back.

Happy New Year All!

Tuesday 8th January 2013 sees our first Kaizen Run Club since returning from the festive break.  It looks like it’s going to be a busy one, so thanks for signing up. We have two options available for you:
1. 4.25 mile for those who have kept up with their running, and
2. a 5k route for those who haven’t been running or want to do a bit shorter tonight).

The aim of the run will be a nice easy, steady run, for you all to catch up with each other.  Don’t push it, just take your time and enjoy yourselves.  😀

As a one off, Ross will take tonight’s Kaizen Run Club, and it will start at 18:30 instead of the usual 18:15.
