Peterborough half marathon – 2019
Many Stevenage Striders are taking on the Peterborough half marathon on 13/10/2019. Some for the first time and others to improve their time from 2018. It is a flat, fast course that is first t8mer friendly but great for those looking for a pb!
Whether it is the first or eighth time you are running the race remember that you need to be running at least three times a week. Also, don’t forget to include at least one strength training session a week. This will make you a better runner and less prone to niggling injuries.
– Tuesday with the club
– Thursday with the club
– long run on Sunday with the club. These should be run at a slower pace.
This ensures you get a balanced training programme – the correct level of mileage but also quality sessions on Tuesday and Thursday that will get you running faster and more efficiently.
