Pace 9.30–12.00 – Distance 5½ – 6½ miles
Coach by Jenny Lister / Andrew Parks
To run at this level you should be able to run 5½ -7 miles miles easy without stopping. The aim to improve speed and endurance. Longer runs on Tuesday and speed work on Thursday. Unlimited regroups. Pace is between 9:30 – 12 minutes per mile pace or even slower. Slower members will run about 5 miles, faster runners in this group could achieve maximum 7 miles. Run back regrouping helps slower runners keep up..
