In relation to Leigh's post above about the Thursday night's drill clinic, I am one of the trainers that have been putting the Pioneers runners through their paces since 29th Oct.
It's a great session that I take on Clapham Common and we do all sorts of drills and interval training that will really improve your running speeds and distances. There is also a good amount of strength training - ultimately strengthing your calves, quads, hamstrings & glutes to give your legs the condition they need for your best performance and to prevent common injuries from weak muscles.
It's a session that suits all level of runner as you just work to your own pace but is great as there are loads of others to push you to your max so that you get the most out of your training.
We also show you how to give each other assisted stretching at the end of the session. This will greatly improve the flexibilty in your muscles and joints and ultimately give you a longer stride and less painful recovery after training!
Do come along and give it a go - it's a very friendly group! If you would like to ask any questions then please email me : firstname.lastname@example.org or come along and try for yourself!
