One of the tougher sessions on the schedule 3 x 1600m (3 x 1 mile in old money). For me this one of the key sessions particularly for anyone intending going up to 1/2 iron distance, but it is still a great session standard distance. It is as usual important to get the pacing right and this is a bit more difficult over the longer distance. Get the pacing even over the 4 laps of each 1600m and also over the three 1600s. Normal meeting time of 7:00pm at the Sonia O’Sullivan track in the UCC grounds on the Mardyke. A reminder that there is very limited parking inside the Mardyke.
Easy warm up jog
3 x 1600m with 800m recovery jog in between
