Sunday – 6 miles easy

Monday – Rest

Tuesday – Meath Fitness Training session or 4 miles easy

Wednesday – 30 minutes Tempo run (race pace +)

Thursday – Meath Fitness Training session or 4 miles easy

Friday – 5 miles easy

If your Meath Fitness days are Monday and Wednesday adjust the plan accordingly.

Runcamp Starts this Saturday at Tara AC

By | Uncategorized

This coming Saturday, January 11th at 9.00am we will be starting Runcamp at Tara AC in preparation for the Bohermeen 10k on March 2nd.

Runcamp is for everyone from those of you who want to complete your first ever 10k to members going for a Personal Best. The squad sessions at Tara AC each week will be tough, but then again nothing worthwhile in life is ever easy! You will be given a specific training programme to follow each week and there will also be talks about injury prevention and nutrition following the Saturday sessions.

The Runcamp Instructors are totally committed to having you ready for this 10k. The Bohermeen 10k is the first event of the year that Meath Fitness members are going to train for collectively and will give YOU a great fitness foundation for taking on other challenges later in the year.

We all must suffer one of two things; the pain of discipline or the pain of disappointment, so set the alarm clocks for Saturday morning and look forward to seeing you on the track!

Who is a Meath Fitness member?
If you have trained with us this year, the duathlon series is open to YOU…

We’re going to have a whole lot of fun at the duathlons, you can come along do the run, have a cup of tea and a scone, do the cycle, have another cup of tea and a scone and if you feel like doing the final run work away, it’s entirely up to you how far and how hard you want to push it, they are a great challenge and you will have great support from your fellow members, team, instructors and others. So come along challenge yourself and enjoy the experience, there’s really nothing that beats the sense of achievement you will feel crossing the finish line, all you got to do is BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

To enter the Duathlon series costs €30, this covers your entry into the 2 duathlons, as much tea and scones as you can eat and drink and a totally retro, funky top of the range Meath Fitness running vest or tee shirt.

Please book into the duathlon series by emailing info@meathfitness.com.
