Running over the Chrissy and new years break? Here's some tips and general advice on how to treat this holiday period.


It's been a huge year for all of RMC's runners and walkers, our week between Christmas and New years provides a great opportunity to rest, recover and reset to gain back some hunger as we launch into the new year. If you feel like you need it..... TAKE THE WEEK OFF! It's not going to hurt you and a complete rest might be what some of you need, not just physically but mentally as well.

But for some of you, I know will be keen to keep the ball rolling and to keep on moving. What should you do? Well, my advice would be to enjoy your running by dropping all intensity and collect some nice slow, easy jogging. This can be done in a long continuous run (20-40 mins) for those that are capable. Or, it can be broken into smaller achievable intervals with walk recoveries between (structured walk/jog workouts below). Which ever option you choose, remember to TAKE IT EASY. Drop your perceived effort to a 2-3/10 and enjoy moving easy.

No one is going to lose any fitness or have to play catch up in the new year. Enjoy a light week how ever you choose to do it, and we look forward to seeing everyone refreshed raring to go in the new year!

Class Cancelations/minimum class bookings


For all RMC Studio classes with 0-2 members booked into a class, RMC will notify participants 3 hours prior to the session starting if they can make another session. RMC will then decide if the class will be cancelled and removed from the booking system.


To assist with this, we ask that if you plan to do a session, please aim to book in as soon as you possibly can. We understand that sometimes it can be hard to book in too far in advance due to family, work etc.


If you can't make a session please make sure that you cancel your booking as soon as you are aware you can not attend. This is essential for all sessions. We are aware sometimes this is not possible especially for parents with young families and appreciate everyone's understanding.

We get amazing feedback from our members and it continues to assist us meeting the needs of our members and providing the best service. We thought it is time to make this an 'official' form and we welcome your feedback.
