On Thursday the 23rd August Lowestoft road runners welcomed local running legend Paul Evans to deliver a half marathon training session to prepare runners for fast approaching Nicholsons Solicitors Lowestoft Half Marathon 2018.
Paul was welcomed by 55 runners from various clubs, some experiences runners and some complete beginners who are looking at taking on the challenge of 13.1 miles along the East coast on the 7th October 2018.
Paul took a speed session which included a warm up, followed by 2 half mile laps which had to be maintained at 10k running pace, followed by 2 laps at 5k running pace, then an all-out sprint to finish. Each lap had a two minute recovery time.
Everyone at Nicholsons Solicitors & Lowestoft road runners want to thank Paul for his time and hope to welcome him back again soon.
The club will be offering free sessions, every Thursday evening from now up until the race guiding runners around the course. With plenty of coaches and experienced runners you can pick up lots of hints and tips leading up to the big day.
