      Structured training - 800m reps

      800m efforts with Becky & Tracey.

      Meet at the Witham leisure centre as usual at 7.30 for a briefing and jog to the pond at Gershwin Boulevard where we will commence warm up drills on the grass area.

      The session will be for 30mins and the closest theme to Valentines we could get is The Train = Team work.

      Teams/group size will be determined by the numbers present on the night. Groups will be your Tuesday night pacing groups.

      The team will be spread out in a line behind each other, you will all be JOGGING at a steady pace,  the last person in that line will then sprint to the front put an arm up and or shout to indicate to the next person at the back to then begin their sprint to the front, you will do this for 800m before recovery of approx. 200m,

      Start at the top of the footpath by the hedge, run around a square to start & no over taking! then along the path towards the pond, all the way round the pond (opposite direction to usual) back up the long path by the hedge, walk (recovery) across the grass back to start again. confused!!! it will all make sense on Thursday, we will have a map.

      As usual this session is open and suitable for all abilities.

      Becky and Tracey look forward to seeing you on Thursday.

      Weekly Peloton Ride

      I had a request for this week, so it’s off to The Barnplants Cafe for elevensies. Weather is looking fine with the possibility of some sunshine, could be a bit on the chilly side though.

      Please arrive by 9:00am in plenty of time for a 9:05 departure and please make sure you and your bike are ready.

      The tough “reverse” route has become the default for this one, so I don’t see why this week should be any different, so it’s out via Silver End, the airfield to Coggeshall. Across the A120 (busy road – TAKE CARE!!) and up the right-left-right to Great Tey, down the hill to Wakes Colne and the drag up to Mount Bures. Right to Wormingfold and Fordham. Left then right across the A1124 (busy road – TAKE CARE!!), down Turkey Cock Lane to  The Barnplants on the right.

      I won’t be out at Morrison’s as I am still in recovery from the lurgy and there’s XC on Sunday, but I intend riding out to the cafe for 11am.

Welcome to Witham Running Club

We are a friendly bunch with more than 200 members and our club meets at Witham Football Club on Spa Road, Witham.

We provide a good mix of training programmes, a great social environment, but most of all we give respect, support, encouragement and equality to our fellow athletes regardless of how quickly or slowly they choose to run.

Our website is full of information, but the best way to find out about our club is to come and give us a no commitment try.
