Taking it to the next level

You guys are doing well, you have the first Pace Session session under your belt. Remember these sessions are pushing you to the next level which is good for the mind and the body, so keep yourself responsible to your paces.  

Next Saturday we have an undulating hill run. The Summit Road course has a nice gradient where you can focus on good technique and build leg strength.

Session Description and Safety
You will be running up the second half of Harry Ell Walkway which leads up to Summit Roa: 

  1. Watch your footing as the surface is uneven on this track.
  2. Please make sure you can hear what is going on around you at all times.
  3. Please keep left and you must be able to hear what is going on around you at all times as cars and cyclists go fast along Summit road. 
  4. Please run no more than 2 abreast at any time. 
  • Run down Victoria Park Road to where the road forks off to Harry Ell Walkway (at the half way point of Harry Ell).
  • Via left and join onto Harry Ell Track. 
  • Follow the Harry Ell Track to the top and turn left following Summit Road to your turnaround time.
  • Continue along Summit Road until your half way turnaround time. This is an out and back run, turn around at a couple of minutes past your half way time and return back to the start/finish point.

Recovery Sequence for after your run

Give this a go - it is 20mins long and a fantastic post run stretch sequence that stretches all the areas we need to as runners. Don't be put off by the pose Rebecca is doing below, she gives options ;o)


Race Day Nutrition

This week we will be sending you a video around race nutrition and things to remind yourself about around fuelling for the race -  so keep an eye out in your Inbox!


It’s hard to believe that there was a time where the idea of women running long distance was questioned. Up until 1967 no woman had entered the world famous Boston Marathon but that year Kathrine Switzer did just that, the first time in 70 years. When she entered the organisers didn’t realise a female had entered and on race day the fact that a female had in fact entered wasn’t met with open arms by the race organiser and during the race he tried to stop her from running. 


  • It's really important that you get to the physio asap if you have soreness that you feel is serious. We are early days in the programme but it does start to ramp up as week's progress - prevention is better than cure! Listen to your body. 
     
  • A reminder that the Queenstown events team have offered our Extra Mile Runners who are doing a programme with us and training for either the 10km, half or full marathon a 20% discount on your race registration which is pretty awesome!
    This is only available to Extra Mile Runners who are training with us for this race so to get the details, please email Jo and she will look after you.
     
  • Blister Free?
    Clare has give us a great recommendation for socks that guarantee no blisters!
    Wrightsock are the biz when it comes to socks to look after your feet and ensure no blisters interrupt your training - blisters can be very nasty! And the best news is - it is a New-Zealand based, owned and operated company ;o)
