Relative Energy Deficiency in Sport: a warning for club runners

Early in December 2018, I developed a running injury - a sharp pain in my pelvis.  It came out of the blue with no warning. The only thing I could put it down to was that I’d overdone it in the previous few weeks and had also been under a lot of stress at the time. I did a couple of races (a PECO and the final Even Splits 5k) in the week before which I knew I shouldn’t have done so initially I blamed myself for simply overdoing it. What has unravelled is actually more significant. 

Nathan’s Winter Training Schedule 2018/19

Having spoken to most of the group recently, I’m not planning to change last year's training rotation.  The schedule will start on Tuesday 18th Sept and will be the tempo session (the tempo session alternates between Marie's 8 mile winter tempo loop and a negative split 30/28 out to Airedale Leisure Centre). Sessions have the usual 7:30 start. Hi-vis tops are now mandatory kit.
