At Squad Lawson you will get a chance to spruce up your running with a variety of workouts to build your running mojo. Take up the challenges and have some fun.
Challenge #1 Complete 3 races in one weekend
Train for and do the 3M3D Grand Slam (i.e. three marathons in three days), or pick a slightly easier option: Friday – marathon; Saturday – Fig Tree Half Marathon or 10km; and Sunday – marathon or 16km Lake Morris Road race.
Challenge #2 Set your goals and win
At the Kick-off meeting on 26 January 2022 you will create your own bingo board with measurable goals. As you achieve a goal, you mark it off on your board. The goals must be short term and achievable, for example: ‘Run easy for 5 days in a row’. The person to complete their board first gets a prize!
Challenge #3 Dice workouts
The Dice workout is a fun way to break up our interval sessions on Tuesdays and will be used while we are not in a race-specific training period i.e. during the first 1-2 months of our 6 month training block. Using a 6-sided die, you do the workout related to the number you throw on the die. Options change from week to week to keep you on your toes.
We will do a variety of workouts to keep you entertained and motivated, including:
Run & do strength workouts at jungle gyms around town
Scenic runs – great views, unique landmarks – natural or man-made
Trail runs – green arrow, Barron Gorge, etc.
Running with a new friend
Running with your dog
Challenging others – handicap runs and ‘chase the rabbit’
Run up/down stairs – yellow and red arrow
At the end of our training sessions you get to do:
Kick at the end
