Thursday’s session – Riverwalk

14 May 2018 - By Becky Grimwood

Thursday is a speed work session based at the Riverwalk. The session will be approx 400m reps along 2 different out-and-back sections of the Riverwalk, starting at the viaduct. You will get a 1 minute recovery between each repetition.

Running in your usual Tuesday night groups, you will be set off on one section of the Riverwalk swapping over to the over section after 15 minutes following a longer 2 minute recovery.

In brief –
Session intro at the leisure centre, 7:30pm
Warm up jog
400m out, 1 min recovery, 400m back,1 min recovery (repeat for 15 mins)
2 min recovery to swap sections
400m out, 1 min recovery, 400m back, 1 min recovery (repeat for 15 mins)
Cool down jog

This is an excellent session to test yourself to improve your speed. Technical points will be discussed in the briefing.

If you are doing the Magic Mile and/or racing at the weekend, this session is still do-able, but please slow your pace accordingly. Ask if you are unsure.

One last thing – BUG SPRAY! We are running along the river – spray yourselves silly.

Sasha and I look forward to seeing you there.
