Seniors’ Endurance Training w/c 26th August

This week’s plan:

To try and shake the Bank Holiday weekend’s excesses out we’ll get out in the park, on the grass, winding through the trees.

3,4 or 5 laps of roughly 1km. Starting from the Cromwell statue opposite the hall. Nice long 3 minute rest – probably sheltering under a tree from either the rain or the sun beating down. Try and stay in groups.

Hitting the track again with 6, 8 or 10 lots of 400m with 400m jog recovery.

Seniors’ Endurance Training w/c 19th August

Neil has set the plan for this week:
Bring ‘serious’ race faces, enthusiasm and possibly water.

3 or 4 (or 5?) big loops of Park. Run 800m between Altrincham and Wythenshaw road, jog the bits in yellow. Adopt ‘serious’ race faces for red, chillaxed faces for yellow.

We could go in different directions also to encourage each other.

Track speed session -200m/200m/800m (200m between reps, 400 between sets)
Do 3, 4 or 5

Seniors’ Endurance Training w/c 12th August

Tue – Laps of the ‘Sizzler’ loop – see map below. Run the red sections at ~5K pace.  Fast jog the yellow sections. At the end of the lap, no rest, just change directions. 4, 5 or 6 laps.

It’s the height of summer holiday season, but hopefully enough people will be around to split into a couple of groups and keep it sociable.

Thur – Track speed session, three options depending on how much you’ve been eating ice creams instead of training:

1: 2 sets of 800m/600m/200m

2: 2 sets of 800m/600m/400m/200m

3: 3 sets of 800m/600m/400m/200m

30 sec standing rest between reps, 5 min rest between sets. Pace: fast as you dare.
