Ranelagh Harriers Training Plan
 Training - Advanced Group 
 October to November 2018 
Period - autumn
What are these sessions for?    We write these Tuesday training sessions for people looking to improve their time at distances between 5km and the marathon.

Will I get left behind?    In a word, no. All speeds of runner are welcome.
Odd-numbered intervals go in one direction, and even-numbered intervals in the other, so we all end up in the same place every two intervals.

How do I get more advice?   Grab a minute with Phil at the sessions, or email me at (ranelagh.men@gmail.com). We offer free coaching for regulars at training and racing.

SAFETY NOTICE: Please wear lights and reflective / light coloured clothing for training runs where the warm up or intervals are on road
