Hard to believe this is just the 3rd run in January it feels like the Christmas break was way further back than that. Anyway, this week some long intervals, 4 x 6 minute intervals. It has been great to see some of the new club members turning up to the run session. For other newbies thinking of coming along the run is suitable for all levels of experience and fitness. The main block of the session is run on a 1km loop in the Business and Technology Park on the Model Farm Road so no one gets dropped or left behind. Equally for better runners you will not be held up waiting for slower runners.
As usual two possible meet up options; at the carpark on the city side of the Kingsley Hotel on the Straight Road at 6:30pm or alternatively at 6:50pm at the first roundabout inside the business park on the Model Farm Road. For those driving to the Straight Road there is some parking available in the carpark by the County Hall and for those going to the business park there is a visitors carpark in the park just take a right at the roundabout and the carpark is about 300m down the hill on the left.
Easy run from Straight Road to the business park via walkway or get to the business park a little early and get a short jog in first
6 x 60m strides
4 x 6 minutes at tempo with 3 minute easy recovery jog
Easy run back to Straight Road if you started there.
Please wear some Hi-Viz clothing or some type of small light. If you a new club member or just not that fit yet, we’d recommend going to the business park at least for the first night rather than running from the Straight Road. There will be a short briefing before the session at the roundabout and a very brief regroup at the same place at the end of the session.
