Coach for the Shepparton Runners Club is Chris Armstrong, who takes three sessions per week.
The Tuesday session is held at the Victoria Lake, Shepparton, near the Shepparton Art Museum building, beginning at 5.45pm. This session goes for an hour. Chris plans and takes the group, either through a fartlek, a speed session or a tempo run and he also organises a yoga session once a month. Chris is a great believer in regular yoga sessions, to help reduce the likelihood of injuries.
Thursday sessions are more relaxed, with an out and back easy run as a group. This session starts at 5.45pm and finishes at 6.45pm from the Runners Club clubrooms at Princess Park, Shepparton. The purpose of these sessions is to just turn the legs over, because many within the group regularly participate in Parkrun and we all need fresh legs for 8 o’clock on a Saturday morning!
