Track Session 7.15 for 7.30pm Wednesday 26 June

Next Wednesday is our regular track session and we will be running the popular ‘pyramid’ session:  400, 600, 800, 800, 600, 400, with recovery between each.  These reps are slightly longer than in our usual pyramid session (omitting 200s), but there are less of them – totalling about the same distance.  This is because some of us will have raced in the club’s Imber Court relays the night before. 

Track sessions provide a focussed speed session that works wonders for improving speeds over all distances.  If you have never done track before, do not be put off; bring some friends of a similar speed to you and we will run separate groups for differing speeds.  We will shorten the session for less experienced runners.  Come and see whether you enjoy the thrill of running faster than we do at any other time in our training!

The track session will be at the Poole Road athletics track in Ewell.  Otherwise known as the Harrier Centre or King George V recreation ground, it can be found by turning right into Ruxley Lane off the A 240 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 around 7.15pm to complete a gentle warm up (eg two or three times jogging around the track) and be ready to start the more formal warm up promptly at 7.30pm.  Bring warm clothing for the warm-up and warm-down and some water if it is hot.  The entry fee is £2.80.

Please be considerate of other track users; other local running clubs will also be training there that evening.
