Summer 5km Masterclass – The Final Reckoning

Thursday’s 5K Training Race marked the end of the Dash for Fitness Summer 5k Masterclass, in association with HAC. The participants have been incredibly successful taking an average of c3:00 mins off their 5k time.

As previously reported Grace and Sandra took 2:50 and 1:32 off their times despite only being with us for the first 8 wks. And Lisa and Lois, who joined for the last 8 wks, did equally brilliantly – taking… 2:26 and 1:07 off their times. In addition, whilst Lois was unable to make the race, Lisa was the star of the night – improving her last race time (of just 4 wks’ ago) by an amazing 1:10.

The results achieved by those that did the full 12 wks were even more impressive. Stuart finished with a PB 2:06 faster than his already speedy 24:18 entry time. Helen finished with a 2:55 faster PB. Victoria finished with a 3:34 faster PB. And Kate finished with a PB that was a remarkable 6:02 faster!

In fact, everyone did fantastically well throughout the programme – working hard in the track sessions, on their “homework”, and in the progress checking races. They left a very proud coach with a satisfied (slightly silly) smile on his face.

The spotlight now turns to the Autumn 5K Masterclass which starts this Saturday (16th). We have a mix of non-runners (looking to start running), beginners (looking to run further) and improvers (looking to run faster). If you’re interested in signing up for all or part (4, 8, or 12 wks) of a 5k Masterclass (9-10 Saturdays in Autumn and Winter, and 6.15-7.15 Thursdays in Spring and Summer), then please get in touch to discuss or to register – email dashforfitness@btinternet.com or call Gary on 07710 105086.
