Ian & Colin


The sessions rotate and they also change from summer to winter.

Tuesday runs are Efforts sessions in which two of them are hills and the other two are flat sprints –

A detailed explanation of each of the training session is here (Training sessions explained)

Thursday runs are a longer tempo run, ranging from 6.5 miles to 8 miles.
Sunday runs are decided during the week and depend upon races occurring.

We can also do shorter run on Thursdays of approx 5-6 miles if needed, please ask one of the members about this at the training session you are coming to.

All mileage from mapometer. If you have any training ideas please speak to Colin or Ian.
