TRAINING SESSION FOR JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT- WEDNESDAY 3rd June 2020 

Please do follow the Government guidelines when doing the sessions which is currently not training in groups, you may now train with one other person outside but you must maintain the 2 metre distance at all times (unless they’re from the same household).

This weeks session is devised by Nick Marshal who holds the Level Two Coaching Licence with England Athletics. He is our Group 4 leader for Junior Development, and Quad Kids manager. Nick is a keen marathon runner having completed well over 70 since he began in 2013. In Nick’s own words:

“I have run well over 70 Marathons now since 2013 when I ran my first Marathon At The London Marathon which I hadn’t trained that well for and ran 5:05 for my Auntie and God Mother in Aid of Ovarian Cancer who sadly passed. I’m now on my way to 100 marathons and I in 2016 I ran 20 Marathons in 10 Months for Oakhaven Hospice Lymington for a Friend and customer that passed away there. I raised nearly £3000 in the end.

https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/NickMarshall12MarathonsMy  (the challenge started off as 12 but I raised it to 20 in 10 Months in the end when he sadly passed).

My best time in a Marathon was at Abingdon last year I ran 3:41:04 but doing so many every year this wasn’t helping me break the 3:30 time i was after. So for the first time in my life I decided to train for just one marathon and not one or two a month like before.

I was coming to the end of my training for Brighton Marathon and my training was going really well – I ran a 19:40 5k at Blandford Parkrun coming second and a 1:36 half marathon in a training run, and 2:38 for a 20 Miler and was hitting some of my best form of my life in my training runs. Then the Coronavirus hit which has set me back a little and Brighton Marathon got cancelled and hopefully put back.

So when the Coronavirus Hit and restriction got slightly lifted I decided to run with a friend to Hurst Castle last week Thursday 28th May and back from Bournemouth running over 30 Miles promoting metal health and to to help raise awareness for things such as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Anxiety and Depression, and sometimes even Suicide. This would of been a tough run anyway but the heat and lack of water on route made it even tougher for us both last week.”
