We had a great coaching session with Tom Craggs, England coach on November 27. We have two more sessions scheduled, but Tom has kindly agreed to give us an extra coaching session next Wednesday 15 January.
As previously, the location is at the Poole Road athletics track in Ewell. This is so much more effective for Tom to manage the session and to be able to interact with everyone as we run.
The focus of this training is on practical sessions and advice with 3 (now 4!) organised sessions focused towards developing Half/Marathon fitness and each sees us completing a running specific warm up, main session and cool down. The sessions are opportunities to experience different types of training sessions, warm up and cool downs but also give an informal opportunity for Q&As and sharing of training advice and ideas.
The remaining sessions with Tom will be 29 January and 18 March both at the Poole Road track.
The Poole Road athletics track in Ewell is otherwise known as the Harrier Centre or King George V recreation ground, it can be found by turning right into Ruxley Lane off the A240 and then left into Scotts Farm Road which becomes Poole Road. The recreation ground and athletics track are on your left about half a mile after leaving Ruxley Lane.
Please arrive at the track at 7.00 pm ready to start. Tom will lead the warm up so there is no need to warm up in advance of the session. Bring clothing for the warm-up and warm-down and for during the Q & A session at the end of training session. The entry fee is £2.80.
Please be considerate of other track users; other local running clubs will also be training there that evening.
