Looking forward to seeing you all,
Both routes appear on the same map (see blue 6.5 miles for short, red 9 miles for long) but remember to click on the map to see the detail and ‘zoom in’ for specific road names. Please remember those hi-viz tops as it’s almost dark when we start now!
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.

Sunnyside, working in 3s, 2 laps on 1 off.
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.
30 minute session
Meet at the Leisure Centre from 6:15 to leave at 6:30 for a warm up to the venue or meet there at 6:40.
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.

Thursday Routes: Ref S25Penny
Long: 8.8 miles
Short: 7.2 miles
Still just about hanging onto the lighter evenings although I think this will be our last Summer route
It is a similar route to last week, just a little different at the start, but it allows a mix of Burbage Common before dark and some street lit roads at the end so I hope that this is OK for everyone.
6:20pm meet for prompt departure at 6:30pm. Wear something bright if you can to ensure that we are visible towards the end of the run.
See you there

Warm up/Cool down- 2 miles approx.
Leaving LC at 6:30pm or meet at the venue at 6:50pm 😊
Long route: 8.7 milesPenny
Short route: 7.2 miles
There won’t be many more opportunities to run around the lanes
this year so this route takes us across the Common, round Aston Flamville then back into Burbage with the last 2-3 miles being on street lit roads.
We do go across the Common but it is dry underfoot so will not spoil your running shoes!
Please note that from next week, you will need to consider digging out your Hi-Viz tops with these becoming a necessity by the end of the month.
Tomorrow’s meet as usual is 6:20pm for a 6:30pm departure at the Leisure Centre.
See you there 🙂
