Major repairs to the Kingsmeadow running track mean that the track will be closed for a number of weeks from late October.
Our track session this month will therefore be a week earlier than scheduled and will take place 7.15 for 7.30pm next Wednesday, 19 October.
At this time of year we are mostly running longer distances – some people considerably longer! Speed work is still an important part of a training schedule, but we will run longer reps: either 5x800m or 6x800m.
We meet at the Kingsmeadow track, Kingston Road. Please arrive by about 7.15pm to complete a gentle warm up (eg two or three times jogging around the track, or perhaps run to the track). The formal warm-up begins promptly at 7.30pm. Entry is £3.65.
This speed session is for all standards of runners, involving groups running at differing speeds. Running short, faster intervals in a speed session is an important part of our overall physical and psychological training programme, building endurance and contributing to faster times at those longer distances as well.
