Many members will be running in the Wedding Day 7k next Friday evening, so next Wednesday’s track session (27 July) will be short and sharp to hone your speed.
We will do a pyramid session, concentrating on shorter distances: 2x200m, 2x400m, 2x600m, 2x400m, 2x200m – a chance to enjoy the speed, and focus on a good, relaxed and flowing posture, without wearing yourself out for Friday evening.
We meet at the Kingsmeadow track, Kingston Road. Please arrive by about 7.15pm to complete a gentle warm up (eg at two or three times jogging around the track, or perhaps run to the track). The formal warm-up begins promptly at 7.30pm. Not warming up properly before the exhilaration of a speed session is a sure way to give yourself an injury! 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 speed.
