The club schedule for Jan - Feb focuses on 10km and 5km work with the opportunity on Thursdays for those of you training for half marathons or marathons to include some tempo, HM or M pace miles or kms:)
If you raced at the weekend do recover adequately before stressing your body with faster work.
It is likely that you need 72 hours to recover from a race.
Tuesday's training for purple group is 800m - 1200m warm up, a ladder of 2 x 5/4/3/2/ mins with 60s recovery and 800m - 1200m warm down. Green group are on the Broadway/Spring Road loop for 6-10 x 1000m at 10km-marathon pace with 90s active recovery (walk round). Blue group session is 6 x 1M at 10km - HM pace with 90s recovery around South View/Norton Way.
Thursday's session for blues and green is either a 20-30min tempo, which will not be coached, or 12 - 16 x 400m at 5km pace with recovery time appropriate to speed of runner (75s - 2mins). Purples are welcome to join the 400s or enjoy a 30 - 60 mins continuous run to build their aerobic engine:)
