This Week’s Training Sessions

Please remember that all good training plans should include the appropriate amount of rest and recovery and that the wide range of training sessions offered each week by the club is to enable us to cater for all abilities and availabilities - no-one expects anyone to attend all the sessions!!!!

With the darker evenings, we have now swapped over to the WINTER ROUTES on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please see the club run route page for the route details. Please make sure you listen to the run leaders at the start of the club run sessions for announcements and safety information. If possible please wear something bright or hi viz to club run.

Longer Go for a Runs on Thursday mornings will continue to start around 9am until the end of September.

Those Eagles who run in Richmond may want to note that because of refurbishment works, Richmond Lock Footbridge is scheduled to be closed until the beginning of December 2019. For the Sunday long run, you will need to cross the river at Twickenham Bridge which is the next bridge along – a diversion of about 0.5mile (0.7k).

Check Facebook for further details and any last minute changes, or email coaching@ealingeagles.com if you have any queries.

W/C 16th September 2019

We are now using the WINTER ROUTES. Please see the club run route page for the route details. Please make sure you listen to the run leaders at the start of the club run sessions for announcements and safety information. Check Facebook for further details and any last minute changes, or email coaching@ealingeagles.com if you have any queries.  

Please note that the offer of Mon / Wed club runs requires the availability of volunteers to be leaders and tail runners. The coached sessions require input from qualified coaches / leaders or experienced runners but anyone who is willing to help out and run at a gentle pace can tail a run (and make use of the time to have a recovery run, to work on your running form and to get to know other people in the club). If you have made use of the club training sessions, please play your part in making the club training sessions possible. https://www.ealingeagles.com/tail-runner-schedule

Thursday 19th September

** 9am ** Thursday go for a run meet Ealing Town Hall (corner of Longfield Ave with Uxbridge Road near the Victorian building). This week is the start of taper for most people so the suggestion is to do a 16.8k / 10.5miles run. On the other hand, if this sounds a bit far (you haven’t done many runs around 10miles recently), you may want to consider a 10k / 6mile run with possible extensions if you want to go a bit further. Daytime Eagles who don’t want to go so far can do a 5.6k / 3.5mile route possibly starting at 10am. Please shout up on Facebook or email coaching@ealingeagles.com if you are planning to do this and would like company.

7.30pm West Walk Hills meet West Walk off Hillcroft Crescent - please keep your eye on Facebook before Thursday for full details.
