PR Wednesday Session

It’s not just about the physical grind

At PR, we understand the importance of recognition and motivation. That’s why Coach Martin keeps a keen eye out for standout performances, awarding select members with the coveted title of “Wednesday Warrior.” It’s a testament to their dedication, perseverance and the strides they’ve made in their running journey.

Why attend our Wednesday sessions?

Core Strength

Enhanced Core Strength

A strong core is the foundation of efficient running. By focusing on core-strengthening exercises, you’ll not only improve your stability and posture but also reduce the risk of injuries.

Refined Technique

Running isn’t just about putting one foot in front of the other. It’s about proper form, stride length and cadence. Our technical routines are designed to fine-tune your technique, helping you move more efficiently and effortlessly on the road or trail.

Improved Balance & Coordination

Balance drills are often overlooked in running training, yet they play a crucial role in injury prevention and overall performance. By incorporating balance exercises into your routine, you’ll develop better proprioception and coordination, translating to smoother, more controlled strides.

HIIT for Speed & Endurance

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a game-changer for runners. By alternating between bursts of intense effort and periods of recovery, you’ll boost your cardiovascular fitness, increase your lactate threshold and ultimately, become a faster, more resilient runner.

Community & Camaraderie

Running is not just a solitary pursuit; it’s a community. At PR, you’ll find camaraderie, support and encouragement every step of the way. Whether you’re a seasoned marathoner or a novice jogger, you’ll be welcomed with open arms into our vibrant running family.

So do it for yourself and join us every Wednesday evening to unleash your inner warrior. Whether you’re chasing a personal best, training for a race, or simply aiming to become the  best version of you, our Wednesday sessions are the perfect addition to improve your running.

Running cadence is the number of steps you take per minute while running. You may have also heard cadence running referred to as foot turnover, step frequency or stride frequency.

The lactate threshold is a point during exhaustive, all-out exercise at which lactate builds up in the bloodstream faster than the body can remove it.

Proprioception, otherwise known as kinesthesia, is your body’s ability to sense movement, action, and location. It’s present in every muscle movement you have.

Without proprioception, you wouldn’t be able to move without thinking about your next step. Proprioception allows you to walk without consciously thinking about where to place your foot next. It lets you touch your elbow with your eyes closed.
