Next Wednesday is our monthly track session. Running short, faster intervals in a speed session is an important part of our overall training programme, building endurance and speed. There is a tradition in the running world of running ‘paarlauf’ (pair run) in the build up to Christmas. So do bring along your Santa hats or other (early) festive attire! There will be pairs to match all abilities and we will each run 7 or 8 intervals of 600m, interspersed with a 200m recovery timed to match your partner’s 600m.
This will be held 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.
Do bring warm clothing for before and after and perhaps waterproofing – and encourage others of similar speed to come along so that we all have suitable partners.
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. The entry is £2.70.
Please be considerate of other track users; other local running clubs will also be training there that evening.
