Quality Over Quantity

I never understood the phrase "quality miles". Surely any mile you run is quality? Yes, you can go faster or hillier but as long as you're going, it's good, right? But then I started co-leading a run club. Every Wednesday night our ever-growing group heads off from Lululemon, Covent Garden for a 5k-ish run. Whilst we may not be winning for mileage, I'd give everyone a prize for the quality of each step because every single one has been brilliant!

Some kilometres are covered whilst catching up with newly made friends, some as we plot new challenges and some, for a few determined individuals, have been the fastest or furthest they've ever run. Whatever each session brings, we run for fun.

Whilst we don't like to take things too seriously, there's still plenty of sweat and if the run doesn't tire you out, Elle, my co-pilot, will have a mid-session workout to get your muscles quaking. Quality runs come from strong bodies just as much as the company you have on the way round. Talking of which, we've welcomed mighty marathoners, first time (again) shufflers and just for-the-fun-of-it shakers – this run club is for everyone and we plan to stick together.

It's short but oh so sweet.

Join us for a run at the Lululemon, Covent Garden showroom every Wednesday at 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start. For more information on this and other events, join the Facebook group here.
