Monday - Speed Session

Location: Humber Bridge

Time: 18:30

Starting Point: Humber Bridge, Main Car Park


Why do speed work

You don't have to run fast in training, but as a new runner, chances are you’re running over the same roads or on the same treadmill at the same speed every day. You’re using the same muscles in the same manner every time you lace up your trainers. Then, when it comes to race time, you find yourself stuck in second gear from start to finish. In order to start shifting speeds, your metronomic muscle memory will need some new stimulation, this is achieved by mixing in some speed work into your training.


How do you do that?

Come to Monday evening speed, it's free, what can be better than that.

The course is laps of the second car park (tarmac) so road shoes are fine, see the map, don't worry you won't get dizzy!


All sessions and laps are run at your own pace

You can push yourself as hard or as little as you want, or you can run alongside one of our club members for support and encouragement if needed.

The speed sessions are varied each week.
