Seniors’ Endurance Training w/c 24th November

Nobody seemed to notice that I got my dates all wrong when I accidentally posted this week’s training last week. Rather than doing last week’s training (which was this week’s) again, I thought we should do last week’s planned training this week. So: not this week’s training which we did last week, but last week’s training which we’re going to do this week.

Confused? Good. You’ve hopefully forgotten that I made a mistake. Here’s the plan:

SUNDAY 24th Long run
MONDAY 25th 5 miles steady
TUESDAY 26th 2 X 6 laps (1.5M) tempo run (5 min recovery), 2 x 200m fast 1mile warm up 1mile warm down
WEDNESDAY 27th 5 miles steady
THURSDAY 28th Fartlek 3 miles, 100m to 500m bursts (1mile warm up, 1 mile warm down)
FRIDAY 29th Rest day
SATURDAY 30th Race or easy 5 miles

WEDNESDAY 13th 5 miles steady
THURSDAY 14th Fartlek 4 miles (1mile warmup, 2 miles Fartlek, 1 mile warm down)
FRIDAY 15th Rest day
SATURDAY 16th Race or sustained run

Seniors’ Endurance Training w/c 13th October

The last of the cross country runners should have been winched out of the mud by the time we get back to the track on Tue so we’re back to an intensive week on the training programme:

SUNDAY 13TH Long run

MONDAY 14TH 5 mile steady

TUESDAY 15TH 5 mile Fartlek (1 mile warm up 3 miles Fartlek, 1 mile warm down)

WEDNESDAY 16TH 5 mile steady

THURSDAY 17TH 4 miles sustained run (1 mile warm up, 2 miles sustained run, 1 mile warm down)

FRIDAY 18TH Rest day

SATURDAY 19TH race or easy run

We’ll let those racing the Manchester Half on Sunday count that as their long run!
