Club training sessions this week:
Although the days are getting longer we still expect our members to wear light colours and preferably some form of Hi-Viz and/or reflective clothing.
Monday 7pm with Lucy – Motivational Monday Week 2. 400m intervals with 200m easy recoveries. The idea here is to run each 400m at your 5k pace, building speed and stamina as your legs get tired. The first few will feel easier – you’re running on fresh legs – but as you start to get tired try to maintain pace and running form!
Tuesday 8:45am with Penny or 7.30pm with Pete – Paarlaufs, or pair running. Take it in turns to run approximately 200m, with a short rest while your partner goes. Great for sharpening speed, improving posture and paying attention to your form.
Wednesday 8pm with Terry – Nominally the Marathon Group session but suitable for all. Another VO2 max session aimed at enhancing your speed endurance. This week it’s the turn of 800m intervals with ~400m of recovery. Aim as always is to be consistent with each rep.
Thursday 7pm with Emily – Short Hills – Excellent for working up leg strength and improving core stability. These are shorter, sharper uphill runs (time based, likely to be 10x60seconds) so it’s the same duration of work for everyone. Slow jog back down as recovery.
Saturday 9am – Basingstoke parkrun (War Memorial Park)
Sunday 8am – Group runs
1 April: Next Kit Order
21 April: Southampton Marathon
