Wye Valley Runners coaching
Over the last couple of years, we have been trying to provide those runners who want to do something more than a club run with an alternative speed session, designed to improve their running performance. These sessions, although reasonably well supported, have not been designed as part of a structured training programme. The Committee has agreed that these sessions should continue and we are working with other athletic clubs, such as the Hereford Tri Club, to share coaching resources and the cost of hiring facilities like the track. There will now be a track session every Wednesday over the winter period.
As you know, I have now taken over as Chairman of WVR and one of my aims is to get more people in the club involved in coaching. However, in the short term I will remain as the coaching lead on the Committee, until other people either come forward or are persuaded to get involved. I will still design and take as many of the speed sessions as I can, but I would also be interested in working with some members on a one-to-one or small group basis to help with the entirety of their training plans. In order to gauge interest, can you drop me an e-mail if you would be interested in this approach. I will then arrange an initial meeting for us all to discuss how it will work.
