Earlier this year we set up a Club Discount for Stubbington Green Runners at Fareham Leisure Centre which requires a minimum of 5 people to receive the 20% discount. A couple have cancelled and a few new members have joined since and we currently have 5. The only proof required is a copy of their SGR Membership Card and we can extend the offer to partners by linking them.
The discounted membership fees are:
· £31.99 per month with a £40 joining fee - this is a non-contract membership
· £319.99 per annum – 12 month contract, where you receive 2 months free with no joining fee
· Usual fees are £39.99 per month or £399.99 per annum
This includes full use of our facilities at both sites once Holly Hill opens next year. At Fareham we have a 100+ station gym, 2 Group Exercise Studios, plus a dedicated Spin Studio with over 100 classes per week, 2 Swimming Pools and a Health Suite comprising of a relaxation area, drench shower, Steam Room and Sauna. Our members also have access to all of our Online training plans, Videos and more.
We do currently have a £1 joining fee offer which expires at the end of July – Friday!
SODIUM DEPLETION IN HOT WEATHER I know we’ve all been told not to take excess salt (sodium chloride) in our diets, due to increasing blood pressure and many other health problems. However, in hot weather (or under any circumstances when we perspire excessively) we can lose a lot of sodium. With thirst we may just drink lots of water – which is fine for replacing lost fluids. The downside is that it dilutes the diminishing levels of sodium that the body needs to prevent muscular spasms, weakness, cramp and fatigue and even collapse with hyponatremia.
An easy test to decide if you need to add a pinch of salt (not Lo-Salt) to your drink is to put the tip of your tongue on some salt (again – not Lo-Salt). If it tastes strongly of salt – your sodium levels are ok. If it doesn’t taste ‘salty’ then you need to add a pinch.
Group Run Training Courtesy of Julie Ashman, you can now familiarise yourselves with some of our regular runs, they can be found at the bottom of the page, here.
The SGR morning session is now moving to Friday mornings and will start from this Friday, 27th, meeting at 9am at Crofton Community Centre after the school drop off. All are welcome and we tend to head down to the beach front to do some form of efforts/intervals rather than do a longer run. This enables everyone to work at their own pace and allows us to regroup. We are happy to wait for anyone doing a school drop-off, just let us know you're coming. Please share this with anyone you think may be interested. Please note: This session tends to only run in term time, so look for me on facebook or twitter @fieryfootedme or text me on 07956050159 to see if it is on. Thank you!
