We are really looking forward to launching our new RRC Jeffing group, but what actually is 'Jeffing' and where did it get its name?!
'Jeffing' is a run/walk method which consists of purposefully breaking your activity down into running and walking intervals from the beginning of a training session or race.
The intervals can be split by distance (i.e. run 100 metres / walk 100 metres, repeat) or by time (i.e. run for 60 seconds / walk for 60 seconds, repeat).
Why is it called Jeffing?
He is an exceptional runner, previously setting an American 10-mile road record and winning the 1974 Honolulu Marathon in a time of 2:23:02.
Check out this great video from our friends at The Running Channel which goes into a little more detail ⬇️
We look forward to welcoming you along to a Tuesday evening club session for some Jefffing soon!
