To start the third week of this block we are going to do some hills in Cruagh Woods. Meeting at 0945 in the Car Park. There is a lovely trail for parent /guardian to walk when we are working hard.
If anyone is late:- go up the trail from the car park. About 150 mtrs up the trail you can go left Or Right - it is a looped trail. Stay to the left and after circa 5 mins of light running there is a trail heading off to the left (off the main trail), we will be down this hill on the left completing our hill session.
WHY RUN HILLS?
Running uphill forces you to lift up your knees higher than usual, which improves stride length and speed. This also aids muscle development to increase power. The knee up, toe up position and the lean angle is critical to learning good running form; this applies to sprinters and middle distance runners.
