Live, remote group running workouts guided by expert coaches
Planning on coming out of lockdown stronger than ever, or planning on putting your running on hold until things normalise….sometime ??
- Are you open to trying something a little different with your running?
- Or perhaps you’re struggling a bit with motivation right now?
- Are you keen to run with a group even though you can’t be running together physically at the moment?
- Do you need some time when you can stop thinking about home schooling, stop being with the people you live with 24/7, and actually have some fun?
- Do you like the idea of having an expert coach guide your through running interval workouts?
Running On-Air Is Your Answer
How Does It Work?
- I put you in the Running On-Air WhatsApp group, where you will receive a link to each upcoming session. You decide which session(s) you’d like to come to.
- Once you have Zoom on your phone (and who doesn’t these days) It’s as simple as clicking on that link from your phone when you’re ready to join us.
- You run at a location of your choice. Local sports fields generally work well
- All you need is a phone. You don’t need earphones/buds, but they are a good to have. We have had people just use their phone speaker and it works quite well
- We start the session with a warm up run, when you can have a chat
- Once we get to the harder part of the session, you’ll be put on mute so that we are not all listening to everybody’s heavy breathing!
- Your Running On-Air coach will guide you through the session, telling you when to pick the pace up, when to drop it down, and what level of effort to run at
- Between sets you can have a chat with the rest of the group, and ask your coach questions
This is a live session, with real, live people at the other end of the line
Listen to some warm up banter
A Typical Session
- Warm up for around 10 minutes at an easy pace
- This is followed with some run throughs/strides/faster surges as part of the warm up
- The main part of the session consists of efforts of varying lengths, generally between 30 seconds and 3 minutes, though some sessions we’ll do some 15 second efforts, and some efforts may be up to 5 minutes
- Recovery intervals are also of different lengths and may be either standing or active recovery
- We use the Rating of Perceived Exertion for you to gauge your level of effort
- We also use the “talk test” to gauge your level of effort – we can get a pretty good idea of what sort of level you’re working at by assessing whether you can talk or not 🙂
