Next Wednesday’s track session will focus on training for the shorter distances. If you have never done track before, do not be put off; we will run separate groups for differing speeds.
Track sessions provide focussed speed work that does wonders for improving speeds over all distances, and offer the exhilaration of running faster than we do at any other time.
This month, targeting improvements to handicap and 5k times, we will be doing 8x400m (or 7x400m for the less experienced) with 200m recovery between each rep.
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 an extra layer for the warm-up and warm-down and some water if it is hot. The entry fee is £2.70 but best to bring £3.00 to be sure.
Please be considerate of other track users; other local running clubs will also be training there that evening.
