Who the Sessions are for
These sessions are targeted at endurance runners and triathletes. You should have a good endurance base. If you are new to these sessions or are coming back after injury please speak to the coach before the session starts.
Threshold Sessions Format
The sessions last for about one hour and are run on a one mile off-road loop with some undulations in the summer and a one and a half mile loop around South Bank in the Winter. The aim of the session is to increase your lactic threshold (LT) to improve your race pace at distances from 10k to a marathon.
Hills Sessions Format
The sessions last for about one hour and are run at the University underpass in Winter or the bottom of the hill near the Marriot in the Autumn. The aim of the session is to increase your strength endurance. A typical session would be 6-8 hill reps of around a third of a mile.
During British Summer Time we either meet at the gate at the end of the wooded area, near corner of Tadcaster Road and Knavesmire Road or at the bottom of the hill near the Marriot Hotel. If necessary you can park on Knavesmire Road.
The rest of the year we either meet outside Hamilton Panthers on Knavesmire Road or at the University underpass for Hill training. Please check the individual training events for exact meeting details.
