Good morning Striders! I hope you have all recovered from Gary's 200's session on Monday night, great work from you all!
Tonight's session is VO2 Max ladder on the hockey pitches. This is a great session for building your endurance and efficiency when training by increasing the oxygen uptake in the muscles. The session will comprise of a warm up on the pitches followed by the session which is:
30 seconds on/ 30 seconds off X3,
45 seconds on/ 45 seconds off x 2 and,
1 minute on/ 2 minute recovery and this will be repeated twice.

This is a shorter session lasting 24 minutes in total but to get the most benefit out of it you should give maximum effort!

I look forward to seeing you all later!

What a club. Well done all.

Good evening Striders! Hope you are all having a good week so far. Tomorrow night’s session is Mona Fartlek. This type of training is great for improving stamina and endurance, but also for boosting speed, strength and power. The session will consist of the following tempo runs 2x90sec, 4x60sec, 4x30sec, 4x15sec with a slower tempo recovery of the same time between each repetition. We will meet as usual at the Londonderry Park pavilion at 7.15pm. Looking forward to seeing you all there! Chris
