Saturday Track Sessions

21 April 2017 - By Martyn Byford

I have been asked if there will be any track sessions again this Spring/early Summer.

In short I am happy to facilitate sessions at the Track at Braintree on a Saturday Morning from 9 – 10 if there is a demand.

Like last year it will be a pay £2 on the day at reception with those who belong to Fusion ( Witham, Braintree, Halstead) not having to pay.

Because we don’t hire the track ( its not financially viable) there is a possibility that it may get booked at short notice therefore I check availability on the prior Friday and if that is the case I will put a website and FB post with an alternative plan.

The format will be 1 hour split into 5 segments – warmup, drills, main session, warm down and static stretches.

The main session will be challenging although suitable for anyone wishing to improve their core speed. It will be split into 2 x 20 minute routines with a 3 minute liquid break between each.

The dates I have in mind are 20th, 27th May, 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th June. For those having run Spring Marathons it will have given sufficient time to recover. Ideally I would like to have started on 13th May but Baddow 10 is the following day.

Can I ask please that someone posts on FB with a request for those interested to indicate so I have some rough idea of possible numbers.

Any questions please drop me a line.
