Track Session Wednesday July 26th

What seems like the favourite session this week 10 x 400m with 200m easy jog recovery.  This is about the 4th rotation to 400s since we began in April.  Hopefully people are noting their repetition times and noticing some improvement as we go through the season.  As usual look for even pace across the session, the tendency to burn the first rep and then fade across the rest of the session has thankfully gone! There is still a few people knocking significant time off the latter end of the set, better to even out the entire session.  Meet at the usual time of 7:00pm at the track on the Mardyke

Track Session Wednesday 19th July

A little bit different again this week with a session of 500s. The pace should be your 5km road race pace.  Should be easy enough to do the sums on this one.  As usual personal responsibility for people to balance their race recovery and race preparation.  The full session is 10 x 500m, anyone racing King of the Hill on Saturday should consider cutting this to 8 x.  Anyone not racing should consider marshalling if not already registered 🙂

Meet at the usual time of 7:00pm at the Sonia O’Sullivan track in the UCC grounds on the Mardyke.

Session

Easy warm up jog

Dynamic stretch

6 x Strides

10 x 500m with 300m easy recovery jog

Easy cool down
