With a few people away this evening it was decided to undertake a handicap run today. It required a mathematician and an IT expert to program the spreadsheet in order to calculate everyone’s start times. Unfortunately we didn’t have either. So a slightly delayed start but it kind of worked.

Nick went out first undertaking the longer 5.6mile route. It meant everyone was chasing him!! That pressure of looking over your shoulder was enough to spur Nick on to his fastest time with the running club ever!! A fantastic 7m40s per mile. Next to go was Sharon, she set off 4mins after Nick but on the shorter route of 4.5miles. She managed to beat Nick back, only just, but that was also enough for Sharon to achieve her Personal Best Ever with the Running Club as well!! A fantastic 8m 35s per mile, awesome!!

A minute later and Charles set off in pursuit. He worked hard to close in on Sharon and Nick,  not quite making it past them, but his run was only his 3rd fastest ever with the club and just 3s per mile from his PB! Great Run Charles!! Jo was next to leave the ENJOY club. Although her knee had been a little sore in recent days she still managed a fantastic run, her 8m48s per mile just 8s per mile off her PB!! The two Mandy’s and Lynne set off next all within 30s of each other. Mandy ran the Southampton half-marathon yesterday but was still here this evening and in great form, she ran another 4.5miles this evening and in just over 9mins per mile. Well done on both this evening and yesterdays achievements Mandy!! Mandy B and Lynne ran together on the 3.3mile route. Pushing each other on and finishing right at the front gave Lynne her fastest ever run with the club, an amazing 10m 36s per mile. This is a massive 3mins per mile quicker than her previous best!!! We done Lynne! For Mandy B she was just a few seconds away from her PB as well.

Next to go off together were Pete and Mike. Mike was on the longer route and focused on tracking down Nick running the same route. He didn’t quite catch him but passed quite a few on his way to an amazing 6m 38s per mile, this is extremely fast and just 3seconds outside his PB!! Pete had a “man-cold” this evening and so was handicapped in more ways than one. He completed the course though in 42minutes not bad for the 4.5mile route, well done Pete!

We are back to the normal routine next week with new routes and challenges. It is a Bank holiday Monday, so no excuses guys, see you all next week!

  • A great big thank you to Sharon and Mike who co-ordinated last nights running club (and last Fridays) in my absence. It sounded as though it was a great run last night as well. Gutted to miss it!

    Jo had her shorts on and decided to run the longer 5.7mile Route, this obviously encouraged a lot more people on this route!!!  Instead of the normal 2 we had 8 run the long route, you need to wear your shorts more often Jo!! Greg did his best to keep up with Jo until she did one of her stepping up a gear kick trick! Pete and Nick ran together until Dibles when Nick kicked on to record a fantastic 50mins for the 5.7miles. Mandy and Sue motivated each other all the way around and even caught Pete as they finished the run. Sue was impressed with how Mandy gets faster going down hills, and this certainly did the trick as Sue managed to beat her daughter in revenge for last week. Jo herself did brilliantly, running her longest distance since her injury and in a great time too.  Charles was very happy with his run achieving a good time at the longer distance, those new trainers are certainly seeing some miles already!!Finally Mike sprinted the 5.7miles in a fantastic time of just 38mins, awesome!!

    Maggie ran on her own and although felt like stopping at times was determined to keep going, fantastic self-motivation Mags, well done, a really good time as well!! Alistair went off very, very fast with Carl on his tail on the shorter route. Carl pipped him to the post only when Alistair stopped for a car on arriving back at the studio!! The short sprint really worked for Carl as he recorded the only Personal Best set on the night, a fantastic 8m 29s per mile! Now we know you can do it Carl you will have to replicate the speed on a longer distance.

    A big thanks to Mandy Bowers for helping Sharon with the times and supporting her on the night. The running is clearly working for Mandy as she had trouble keeping her trousers up whilst she was running, must be losing weight from all that exercise. Nina had some tyre issues this evening, having to pit stop 3 times to re-lace her shoes! She still finished in a great time though. Clare also had a great run and was just 14 seconds off a personal best. She was very determined and put in 100% effort.

    Well done team!! Something different next week.

A beautiful evening and a great run tonight for the Warsash running club! It was the last time on these routes and a chance for people to go a little faster as they have become more familiar with the run. There was some fantastic performances this evening as well with 6 Personal Best averages set and 3 very close!

Firstly though a big welcome to newcomer Jack. It was his first run with the Monday night club having run with the Friday team last week. He struggled a bit on Friday with finding a comfortable pace but he was paired with Mandy B for this evenings route and together they did magnificently. Jack set his PB at 11m 17s per mile and apart from a very small walk he completed the run in style. As for Mandy, she averaged 11mins per mile and after doing some training on her own this week is ready to graduate to the longer routes next time! Well done guys!

Our beginners team of ladies were awesome this evening. Lynne, Hana and Clare started with us a few weeks ago and are really showing some fantastic improvements. All three set Personal Bests this evening. Lynne and Hana taking 1m 27s per mile off their pace from their first run just 4 weeks ago. Clare has also seen a massive improvement with 69 seconds per mile quicker tonight! Great stuff ladies, well done!

The other Personal Best was a bit of a surprise this evening. Jo has been recovering from a knee injury since the Great South Run last October. She has only returned to running in the last few weeks and seemed to be running well within herself this evening as she glided past me with half a mile to go! However the time and distance showed Jo averaged just 8m 40s per mile this evening – a new record and a sign that she is back to full health and full fitness, great to have you back Jo!! Jo had been shadowing her mum, Sue, and Mandy on the way round and chose her moment to pass them in the last half a mile. Sue knew she was there and pushed herself hard as the pace setter. It was Sue’s first Monday night session this year and she has clearly been working on her fitness as she too broke her Personal Best record set last August! Sue’s 8m 47s per mile was fantastic! Well done. Also in this trio of ladies was Mandy. Preparing for the Southampton half marathon in a few weeks she was looking very strong and a great pace to keep with Sue and Jo. Her final average was just 7seconds off her Personal Best and a very good effort!

There were a few others who just missed out on their PBs this evening. Sharon has been running to encourage others in recent weeks, but this evening she ran on her own and did an amazing 9m 15s per mile. This was the fastest she has run since November, well done Sharon. Also close to a PB was Alistair, an awesome run was his 2nd fastest ever run with the running club. I know I could hardly keep up with him!! Charles was wearing new trainers this evening and tinkering with his running style a little. Whatever he used it worked as he finished just 1 second per mile off his PB, so close!!!

Sat Nav had a severe hair cut before this evenings run and it certainly made him more streamlined. He ran with Mags and helped her to her fastest run since last June! A fantastic run that knocked nearly 45s per mile off the last time Mags ran this route. Well done! Greg too managed to knock off 24s per mile from last weeks average. He had a great run and is certainly improving loads at the moment.

Finally we had the gents running the longer 5.7mile route. Both had a fantastic run with Pete taking 28 seconds per mile off his average from last week and Mike taking 9 seconds off his last run even with a full cold. His 6m 44s per mile was a lap record on this course and was very impressive.

Next week guys we will have a handicap race with a difference.

Running Club News 6/4/15

It was a glorious Bank Holiday Monday today, the sun shining and temperature in the 20’s! It took a lot of motivation to decline the BBQs and drag yourselves along to running club this evening. A massive well done to the 7 of you who did!!

There were some fantastic performances as well. Nina, who ran yesterday as well, set a new Personal best time today!! Running with her partner, Carl, they sprinted the 3.1mile route in an average of 10m 24s!!! This is fantastic as it took a massive 46seconds per mile off her Nina’s previous best average! Well done the pair of you, that fitness is still improving!

Setting another PB today was Nick, well it was a PB of sorts….It was his fastest average since September 2013 and post-knee issues. Maybe we should call it a PKPB (Post-Knee). Either way it was an extremely fast run averaging just 7m43s. This was made all the more remarkable as Nick had completed a grueling Bootcamp class for an hour with me earlier in the day!! Well done Nick! Pete had all good intentions on keeping up with Nick, but by the first corner it was clear a more reserved but enjoyable run was required today. An average of less than 9mins per mile is still impressive though.

Greg managed to take a detour again this week. He said afterwards, he enjoyed his bespoke route last week he thought he would do it again this week. And so he did! A slightly slower average, but a very impressive 6miles completed, well done Greg!

Alistair was back this evening having missed a few runs due to work. I think he was sponsored by Tequilla again this evening following a particularly busy weekend, but he flew round the route keeping just ahead of Jo to average 9m 19s. Jo, who seems to have fully recovered from her knee problem, finished just behind Alistair in another excellent run!

Last chance on these routes next week

Running Club News 30/3/15

Well tonight was a bit of a mess. It all started with problems understanding the routes, even though maps were kindly provided by Mike to show the way. Admittedly the routes did seem a tad complicated but once running they were fairly straight forward. Then we had the weird Bermuada triangle thing that went on at the Crofton / Thornton Triangle, everyones sat navs and watches seemed to go faulty at this point so accurate time keeping was a challenge this evening. The third thing was that it rained. Well actually I found it quite refreshing so not actually a problem. Anyway…….

Apart from all the above challenges it was a good run with a great turnout and some great performances. A massive well done to the three new ladies – Hannah, Clare and Lynne. They all improved a massive 10% on last week with an increased distance to 3.1miles of non-stop running!! Fantastic Ladies. Even better was the fact that they also knocked off over 30seconds per mile each from their pace to show they are also running faster now too! Awesome!

Today was the first time on the new routes and as always there was some colourful interpretation of the routes. Sat Nav and Greg paired together, it was always going to go wrong from that point! They managed to add on a little section to the already long route. However, they both completed the bespoke 5.9miles in a very good average! Well done gents! I will look to supply a compass and map each next week! This route, without the detours, was 5.7miles and Mike flew round it in his first experience of the lap in an average of just 6m 53s. This route could produce the best time yet as Mike nearly always takes off 20s per mile as the course becomes familiar, no pressure Mike!! Also running this route were Pete and Charles. Pete had a great run averaging just over 8 mins per mile. Charles, having run at the weekend in the paint run in Pompey took a slight shortcut. The beer cans he was carrying during the run at the weekend had left their mark in more ways than one although his average of 10m 13s was still very respectable.

Sharon ran with Mandy B this evening and between them they had a great time. They ran a slightly shorter route but did it very quick. For Mandy this was a massive Personal Best – 10m 19s per mile, that was nearly a whole minute per mile quicker than last weeks run. Well done Mandy and Sharon, definitely getting fitter!!

We also had the two very determined ladies running together today. Jo and Mandy seemed perfect to pair up – determined, fit and focused, the pair set off on the 4.2mile route and flew past me at Fleet End Round like a whirlwind! Their times of around 8m 50s per mile was Mandys second fastest ever and for Jo it was her best time since October and only 9s per mile off a PB! Well done ladies, I look forward to seeing how this duel continues on this route next week!

Finally, Tom and Mags were back this evening and following a slight pit stop to change some footwear they both pushed on to a good time, albeit on a slightly amended route. Their time of just over 10mins per mile will soon improve with the course knowledge, well done guys!

Same routes next week team. Yes, we are running on Easter Monday……you will be fueled by chocolate so I am expecting some very quick times!!

Running Club News 23/3/15

I was expecting a quiet one this evening after yesterdays successes at the Eastleigh 10k, but it turned out to be the busiest session of the year so far! We had 3 new recruits to welcome to the running club this evening. Lynne, Clare and Hana. They finally plucked up the courage to come and give it a go and they did amazing. They completed the 2.7mile route non-stop in their first run for many years! Well done ladies and welcome to the club, I hope to see you all there again next week!!

We also had a few people returning this evening – Charles was back from Vegas Baby! He said he was a few pounds worse than when he went, I wasn’t sure if that was his weight or the casino effect though. It was good to have him back! Greg has also been away in Florida, although he did make it back for the Eastleigh 10k yesterday. His time of sub-10mins per mile this evening was like he had never been away!!

For those who ran the 10k yesterday I was expecting a slow, cool down run, but no! Nina had a storming run yesterday and was even faster this evening, producing a new Running Club PB of 11m 10s per mile. She was running this evening with Mandy B, whose time was also a Personal Best with the club. Sharon ran with the ladies and no doubt helped with the pacing  Thanks Sharon and well done ladies, just getting faster and faster now!

Carl had a great 10k yesterday and flew round today’s circuit as well. He finished just 3seconds per mile off his PB! Its getting closer though Carl!! Also coming close to setting records was Mike. He took 39 seconds off last weeks time but it wasn’t quite enough to beat his PB, 6m 50s was damn close though and extremely fast!

Nick and Pete both ran different 10k races yesterday and in similar times, so they spent this evenings run comparing notes on the way round. They were clearly in conversation as they missed the turn for the 4.5mile route and ended up having to do the longer 5.8miles.  Still, it was a good loosener after yesterdays run!

Alistair set a new PB at yesterdays 10k so he could have been excused for a gentle stroll this evening, but he started where he left off yesterday and put in another great performance to finish the course 6minutes faster than last week and just outside the 9mins per mile average! Rob also had a PB on yesterdays run and today took 4 mins off last weeks circuit. His 7m 24s per mile was just 7seconds per mile off his PB as well. Well done Gents!

Next week we are going for a “out and back” challenge before setting some new routes for the week after.

Well done all!

Eastleigh 10k Race

New Life Training Running Club were well represented at todays’ Eastleigh 10k for the 2nd successive year. The weather was kind and the run enjoyable. Nearly 2500 had entered this years race and you can see all those who represented New Life Training did amazing. Everyone finished and no-one stopped, awesome!!

For those who were running this race for the 2nd successive year, they had a bit of course knowledge and so a chance, with a years extra training with NLT behind them, to improve on last years time. Greg has been working hard on his fitness for the last 12 months, although a trip to Florida just before the race was anticipated to slow him slightly! His time of 58m15s was a massive 6m26s better than last year, that is nearly a minute per mile quicker!! Fantastic! This placed Greg just 32nd in his category, 8 places higher than last year!

Alistair had a great run this time last year, he has been full of cold so expectation was not high. However, running in competition with Carl, the two of them encouraged each other to a time of 54mins. For Alistair this was 4m 36s quicker than last year, a huge improvement, even with a cold. For Carl, this was his first Eastleigh run with NLT and what a great way to start, his 8m 47s per mile will be tough to beat next year! It was also Nina’s first Eastleigh with NLT and she did fantastic, completing the run in an average of 11m 33s per mile, definitely getting quicker Nina, it must have been all that determination to cross the line!!

Also showing a huge improvement year on year was Rob. His 3m 55s improvement on last year moved him up 45 places in his category and in to the top 100! Well done Rob! Jane also had a great run. She beat the hour mark by 52 seconds, 2m 44s better than last year and just 85th in her category, 28 places higher than last year!! Jane had Sue to run with today and her time was just 20 seconds difference from last year. Sue finished just 40th in her category – a fantastic achievement!

It was this race last year that Pete hurt his knee and after 12 months of trying to run through it he returned to Eastleigh to face his demons! He had a great run too, not quite as fast as last year, but he finished 92nd in his category the exact same position as last year! A great run! Well done! Lindsey had an awesome run last year, although unfortunately she couldn’t remember much about it after celebrating so hard after! Today though she had a great performance. She finished just outside the 10mins per mile average and thoroughly enjoyed it and hopefully will remember it!

Well done to all the runners. The next event we be posted in the monthly newsletter early next week, until then see you at the running club on Mondays and Fridays.

It was the second time with these routes although a few people changed their run this evening with the imminent 10k race this Sunday. When Nina asked if anyone would run with her on the 3.1mile route this evening there was a big queue!! In a selection process that could match “The voice” Nina decided to go with Sharon and the pair set off on the 3.1mile route. They really pushed each other round and ended up with a fantastic average of 11m17s per mile, A personal best for Nina. Well done! Nina should gain loads of confidence from this evenings run going in to Sundays 10k!! Well done to Sharon for running with her!

Also breaking records this evening was Mandy, she has been improving again recently, but this evenings run of 4.5miles was awesome. She averaged just 8m 37s to set a new PB! Well done Mandy. She had started the run with Alistair who has been helping with the pace setting in recent weeks, however his cold got the better of him during the route and he had to drop back. He still completed the run and hopefully will be better ready for Sundays race.

Mike set off like a rocket this evening, but this time he was being chased!! He was given about a 400 yard head start before I decided to try and keep up with him this evening. I slowly closed the gap and up Hunts Pond Road got to within striking distance. Mike is used to running on his own at that pace so he jumped a little as I passed him coming down Brook Lane. The only problem……I was going full speed and Mike was still only in 3rd gear! He put on a sprint to beat me by 30 seconds. Thanks though Mike as I believe it was my PB with the running club just to try and catch up with you!

Rob and Nick had a great tussle this evening running the longer route. They kept over taking each other, pushing each other faster and faster. Nick finally just pipped Rob with a sprint finish down Brook Lane to secure a 1 second lead. Great times though gents, well done. Good luck to Nick who is doing the Richmond 10k this Sunday and to Rob who is doing the Eastleigh 10k!

Pete and Carl both opted for the middle distance route this evening as both were saving their energy and legs for Sundays big race. Two great times though Gents with Pete 30seconds faster per mile than last week and Carl finishing just outside 9mins per mile!

Finally, Sat Nav managed the longer 5.8mile route this evening. Although he did run it on his own having missed the start time! Well done though Mike on great commitment in setting off and running the route on your own. A good time too, under 9mins per mile, awesome!!

Running Club News 9/3/15

There were three routes to chose from this evening, each with their own challenges. It was great to see all three routes used and although there were no Personal Best times recorded this evening there were some awesome performances.

Firstly, returning from a knee injury we had Jo back! She teamed up with Sharon to run the 3.1mile route as part of her staged return to running. I’m not sure if she was supposed to run quite that fast though as her 9m 17s per mile was extremely quick and shows she hasn’t lost any of her speed! Well done Jo and well done Sharon for pushing her along!!

With the Eastleigh 10k just a few weeks away those participating were encouraged to run the longer 5.8mile route this evening. In a fast start Rob was actually keeping up with Mike for the first mile or at least until they both faded in to the distance from the rest of the pack. Rob couldn’t keep up though as Mike finished with a 6m 56s average, not far from a PB! Rob’s average was still very impressive, his 7m 19s per mile was just 2 secs per mile off last weeks PB! Well done Gents. Nick was next to finish on this route. He is a little further along the knee recovery training than Jo, the 5.8mile route was one of the furthest runs Nick has achieved for a while. Even more pleasing was his time, a lightning quick 7m 51s per mile average, his fastest in 2015!! Also entered in the Eastleigh is Alistair, he ran this evenings longer route with Mandy, the pair of them completing the route in 9m 15s average. Very quick and looking good for the Eastleigh!!

Pete is doing the Eastleigh but wisely is saving his knees for the race itself and opted for the middle distance route of approx 4.5miles. Nina and Carl are also running the 10k and running together today they were pleased to put some miles in to the legs. There was no problem with the distance so I am sure there will be no problem with the 10k!!! Well done guys!! Mandy B also stretched her legs today and completed her furthest distance since joining the club. She said she found her mojo on the way round and didn’t want to stop!! Awesome!! It was a good time too Mandy, well done! Tom was like lightning last week and this week was no different on a longer route, his 9m 07s one of his fastest runs and on a good distance too. Maggie, running with Sat Nav this evening, also was fast, her 2nd quickest run ever with the running club!!! Her last PB being in June last year!! Well done Mags!!

 

Same routes next week and a chance to improve before the Eastleigh 10k
