WLG Club10k - Week 5

 

WEEK 5 Newsletter

REflect and refocus

One thing we can forget to do when we are moving towards a goal is to stop and see the progress we have made. Although it makes sense as we are still looking towards the end target but it's so important that we stop along the way, take a moment to see our progress and celebrate this. 

When we started training together you may have looked at the programme and thought that it seemed nearly impossible, but you have kept turning up each week and have kept on challenging yourself to take the next step forward.

We still have a few more challenges in front of us but take a moment to pat yourself on the back.

Because we have hit the half way point it's time to do some mental reward work.

At this point we can sometimes still only see the big steps that we have in front of us, that's why we have this list of questions below for you to answer that will help you realise what you have gained to this point and may help you stay motivated till the end of the programme. You can choose to just think about your answers or you can write them down, it's entirely up to you. 

1. What are the physical benefits that I am feeling from the training I have been doing? 

2. Which sessions have I enjoyed the most and why did I enjoy them? 

3. What are the mental benefits that I have experienced from doing the programme? 

4. Why should I be proud of what I have done? 

5. What have I learnt about myself that I can take into other areas of my life? 

6. If the current 'you' could go back 4 weeks ago what would you tell yourself about how well you have done? 

By thinking about these questions we realise that we have made progress. This creates a feeling of success which is important in creating belief in our ability to achieve our goal. While there is still work to be done the more you build your belief the higher the chance that you are going to make it to that 10k finish line in a way you are proud of.


STRETCHING IS A WASTE OF TIME IF NOT DONE CORRECTLY

Tight calves are a common ailment for our runners and can lead to several injuries. We hear it so often, but what can you do to reduce the risk of injury caused by tight calves? Below is a quick clip showing great stretches - which if done correctly will make your run more enjoyable. 


This is speech from Al Pacino in the movie Any Given Sunday to watch when you are struggling to put your running shoes on and get out the door!


  • Remember to stay focused and keep turning up ;-). 
     
  • Keep up your great work. 
     
  • Next Programmes: 
    Some of you have been asking about the next group start date, we have one more programme for 2017 and it begins the week following your final run on 23 October (yes - Labour Day).
