|Ranelagh Harriers Tuesday Training Groups|
evenings we run structured training sessions for all
abilities of distance runners in Richmond Park and the
purpose of the sessions is to increase lactic acid
tolerance; strengthen your heart and lungs; build
leg-strength (especially the quadriceps and gluteal
muscles i.e. thighs and buttocks); and develop
good running technique. Improve these and you will find
your race pace at all distances from 5k and upwards
improves (when combined with improving your endurance) -
and the sessions might even help you catch that train or
bus that you always miss!!! Importantly, we also have a
lot of fun.
into a number of different groups based on speed and
training distance/volume, running on a variety of
surfaces (road, cross country, flat, hills) depending on
season and training focus/goals. We ensure that each
group fully cater for the range of participants ability
and we are committed to safety.
are led by UKA qualified coaches from our team.
|Where and when ?
We meet at 7:00pm prompt at the Ranelagh Harriers Clubhouse. Arrive 10 mins early so you have time to change.
|Who are the sessions for ?
The sessions are targeted at adult endurance runners of all abilities who take part in running events throughout the year on any type of surface. Ideally, you should have built up a good base of stamina and endurance before you start to introduce faster-paced work. If you are in doubt or have any questions, get in touch with one of our coaches.
|What is the format of the sessions ?
The sessions consist of a jog warm-up, work on technique/drills, around 15-40 minutes for the main session, and a cool-down jog followed by stretching. The total distance covered for each group (including warm-up/cool-down) is shown in the table. Every week the main session has a specific goal and the type of session will reflect this i.e. intervals, hill work, speed work.
