Our training team provide interval sessions for members every two weeks on Wednesdays which run alongside the clubs regular training routes.
An interval training workout involves alternating periods of high-intensity effort with periods of low-intensity effort, which is called the recovery. For runners, this would typically involve interspersing bouts of fast running with slower running.Interval sessions help runners increase speed and stamina. Some of the sessions will cover five or six miles. All sessions include a warm up and cool down.
The sessions typically run on the first and third Wednesday every month. We currently confirm the interval sessoins during the week. We will soon be providing a schedule detailing the types of sessions on each week.
A pyramid session combines repetitions of short bursts of fast running followed by resting. the duration of run and recovery increases each repetition and then reduces.
This is a variation of the pyramid session but it keeps the run duration at 3 minutes and reduces recovery duration.
