26th May - Tempo Intervals

With club training sessions suspended due to Coronavirus lockdown measures our 2 club coaches, Glen Johnson and Andy Sloan, will be providing you with a weekly suggestion for a quality speed / endurance session.

Tonight's session is presented by Andy and it built around intervals of 1 mile targeting approximately 30seconds faster than 10k race pace.. 

Click the video link to hear Andy describe the sessions in his own words, or follow the bullet points below

  • Start with a 2-3 minute warm jog, following by dynamic movements/stretches for a further 5-6 minutes.
  • Begin the main session:
    • Run 1 mile at a relatively comfortable pace
    • Mile 2 should be at 30 seconds faster than 10k race pace 
    • Mile 3 back to comfortable pace
    • Mile 4 at 30 seconds faster than 10k race pace 
    • Mile 5 back to comfortable pace
    • Mile 6 at 30 seconds faster than 10k race pace 
  • Finish with a steady cool down and of course, don't forget to stretch when you are finished.

Stay Safe. Keep Running. Look after yourselves.
