More Information on August Programmes….

The beauty of both of these packages is that  you do the running, when suits your schedule – but we get you out the door, pick you up on the bad days and give you pat on the back when you do a good job. You also get the option to join in our zoom classes live or via playback.

When we start, the first thing you do is set your running goals. Then, over the 4 weeks we will coach, support and motivate you to reach your goals- while you get out there and do your running ‘homework’.

Private Forum : At the heart of the programme will be a dedicated private Facebook group for only those people who are part of this summer programme. It will be a small and welcoming group. It will be there to help us all feel part of a community, let us share our experiences/questions or just to browse when you need a little motivation.

My running goals : You can choose one (or a few) running goals from this list :

  • Get back running
  • Enjoy running more
  • Build a running habit
  • Get faster and stronger
  • Get stronger over 5k or 10k
  • Build up to 10k from 5k
  • Make running feel easier
  • Improve breathing and technique
  • Keep running 3 times per week
  • If you want to run a marathon, go here instead.
  • If you have never run before, go here instead.

Virtual Races : To help keep motivation up, you might like to join a ‘virtual race‘ to put a date in the diary or you can just enjoy getting outside for the summer with no real big training goal. You are the boss.. and we will help you get there.

COVID Compliance : All classes will be run in accordance to current government advice. Full details will be sent to all participants.

Come join us and get running and motivated this August with ForgetTheGym.

Note:  As per all our coaching, there is no competition between our runners. We are all there to support eachother and encourage others in their running goal. We all have different summers ahead, and it’s great to have others on our side. There is enough stress and anxiety out in the world this 2020, we want to make running something that will take your mind off your worries and help you get some headspace.
