WCOC  Training - Autumn 2018

The training  suggested below is intended to support members of WCOC, especially the juniors, in following a progressive training programme in order to improve their speed and strength endurance for orienteering.
The training starts at a fairly easy level reflecting that September is the end of a very busy summer of orienteering for many, it is the beginning of the winter training season and of course, we want to encourge both those who have never done this type of training previously and those who haven't done it for a while.
The first six weeks proposals have been set out below.  These may vary a little depending on attendance, location, weather or coaches whim!  It is intended that an individual or the group could manage the session whithout the need for a coach to lead but we hope to have a coach present at least once a month to support these activities.  These will be indicated on the programe below which will be updated on the WCOC website as the programme develops.
This is not intended to be definitive; discussion and feedback welcome.  Please make any suggestions to ask any club coach for assistance.
