Adnams Southwold 10k Training Plan

By Sophie Palmer, also posted in News on

For those lucky 800 who managed to get a space on our 10k run on November 20th, which sold out in record time this year, Gary Matthews has created a training guide for us. Gary, who is a keen runner and cyclist, runs Gem Fitness in Southwold, and has started our 10K a number of times alongside Jonathan Adnams. Our Southwold course is suitable for both beginners and experienced runners, so Gary has devised two guides to help you train, depending on your level of experience; for those who wish to finish under an hour and those who are little more advanced who aim to run it in under 50 minutes. Even if you didn't manage to get a place this year, Gary's guide will come in handy to use when preparing for your other races. Adnams 10k 2015 raceThe guide is an 8-week plan, starting Monday 26th of September, and gives a day-by-day plan of what training to do as well as rest days. Download the Adnams Southwold 10k Training Plan (PDF, 268kb)   You can see the route here (it’s a circular route with two and a bit laps with an extra uphill section at the end – but it’s okay as you can see the pub in the distance!) if you fancy having a go at it beforehand. If you'd like to keep us up to date with how your training is going, give us a tweet @adnams or if you Instagram a pic of your training, don't forget to tag us in it! We'd love to hear how your training is going and how you like the guide! #Adnams10k Remember there’s a goody bag waiting for you at the end containing a medal, Ghost Ship beer for over 18s and a few other bits; a bit of motivation to start training. Good luck!
