Thursday

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.

Meeting Time
6:30pm

Meeting Location

From Thursday 15th February  meeting outside Hamilton Panthers Building on Knavesmire Road  to do 6 weeks of road threshold loops. When the clocks go forward and the nights are lighter we will resume with 1 mile off road threshold loops at the Knavesmire.

Generally 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 ( Oct to early  Feb ) we  meet at the University underpass for Hill training. Please check the individual training events for exact meeting details.
