Time: 7pm after training - approx 8:30pm

Cost: order  and pay for your own dinner and drinks on the night

RSVP: I have booked a table for 30, but if you are on facebook, please join the event so I can keep an eye on numbers!

Saturday Session - New Farm Park for S&C

This Saturday is your chance to come along for a great running and strength workout and to be guided through the next monthly program!

I know I have been doing program 2 for 4 weeks now, increasing my weights during the month. So I am keen for program 3 to keep me going and getting stronger. 

Remember in these sessions we are up to about 10km of running (or run/walking for those easing into it), so come along and get some nice hard efforts in. 

Keen for a longrun, come along and meet us at 6am and see if there is another keen to join you! 

NOTE: change of venue!!! 

When: Saturday 14th March
Time: 6am-7:30am
Where: New Farm Park - meet at the rotunda
Cost: Great value only $2 for members, $4 non-members. 

Bring your appropriate weights as guided below. 

Also, Jan Power Markets are on, so bring a blanket, some money and we will hit the markets after training for breaky and coffee!!!!

S&C Program Recap:

The plan is to have 2 S&C Saturday Sessions per month. However, this is not nearly enough of this type of training to be effective. So, to gain the most benefit we would encourage runners to attend our session and then conduct their own sessions during the week using the guide posted on Facebook after the session.

Come along and learn how to perform each exercise correctly, plus get a great running workout that will not only improve your overall fitness and strength but will improve your running as well.

Weight will be used for these sessions, so, as we don't own 20 sets of weights, can you please bring your own set of dumbbells. If you are unsure of the amount of weight to bring here is a simple test:

You will want 40% of your max single rep bicep curl. To do this do a standing bicep curl using a weight heavy enough to only perform 1 rep. You will want 40% of this weight. Eg: I lift 30kg so I will be using a set of 12kg weights. Renae lifts 12kg, so she will be using a set of 4kg weights. If you are still unsure, use what you use during pump.classes. You can also use elastic therabands if you have them. You only need one set of weights for all exercises (e.g. 2 x ?kg dumbbells). As you get stronger, you will need to increase your weights, so if possible buy a set or dumbbells where you can add weights! 

We welcome members and non-members, runners and walkers or those recovering from running injuries. We are happy to adapt exercises where required.
