July Track Sessions – 8:30pm on Thursday 4th, 18th and 25th at Tabor Academy, Braintree

1 July 2019 - By Scott Darney

Witham Running Club will be holding 3 more trial track sessions at Braintree Track (Tabor Academy) at 8:30pm on the following dates:

– Thursday 4th July
– Thursday 18th July
– Thursday 25th July

After July, we will then review and decide if we continue the sessions into August and September.

The Track sessions planned for July are aimed at improving speeds over distances from 5k through to Half Marathon leading into the trio of Essex Championship Races:

– Pleshey Half Marathon – 15th September
– Southend 10k – 6th October
– Stebbing 10m – 10th November.

This will also put you in good shape for the start of the XC season but watch out for specific off-road training that your coaches might have planned for you!

Including warm-up and cool down, the sessions will be roughly an hour long and cover approximately 10-12km . The format of each session will be similar in how they work but the distances and sets will change each week ranging from reps of 400m to 2000m.

Please note that these sessions are not solely aimed at the “faster” runners. They are suitable and are coached to cater for all runners at the club please do be mindful of your current fitness level prior to attending and if you are unsure as to suitability feel free to reach out to myself or one of the other coaches.
