Tuesday's session for blue group is a 7 x 3mins fartlek with 2mins of easier running between each effort. If you are looking for a certain mileage for your marathon training you could always run the extra miles afterwards as a longer warm down. Thursday's session is 2-3 x Dunhams hills 'up and overs'.
On Tuesday purple group will be walking to the Cowslip Hill entrance to the Common and then jogging to Grange Rd via Hawthorn Hill. The session from Grange Rd roundabout is a ladder of 3 minutes out, 90s of recovery and then 3 minutes back followed by 4 mins out, 90s recovery and 4 mins back and finishing with 3mins out,90s recovery and 3 mins back. This is 20 mins of running altogether. if you coming back from injury or illness you can always shorten the session by just doing the 3 and 4 min efforts and finishing before the last 3mins out and back. On Thursday purples have a continuous run of 30 - 40 mins depending on fitness and experience.
