Training Schedule

Tuesday Speed Work

Speed Work
6.45 pm – 8:00 pm

Leaders: David Ozanne & Matt East
Location: Meet at Lockyers School
Suitable for: Juniors 15+, Seniors All Levels

Speed or interval sessions take place on a Tuesday night, meeting every Tuesday throughout the year at Lockyer’s School. During the winter months we run to various locations around Corfe Mullen and Broadstone; once there we do a variety of session on flat and hilly routes that are anything from about 0.5 to 1.5 kilometres on roads. In the summer we run similar distances off-road at Corfe Mullen Recreation Ground.

Different abilities attend the sessions and the distances you will be required to run will vary, depending on your age, experience, pace and level of fitness. The coaching staff will take these factors into account in determining the content of the session. There is no pressure to run at a pace faster than you can manage, or to run further than you are comfortable with.

If you attend for the first time, make sure you introduce yourself to Dave or Matt so they can help you get the most out of the session.

Thursday Track Session

Track Session – Speed & Stamina
7:15pm – 8:30pm

Leaders: Matt East & Andy Howse
Location: Ashdown Sports Centre Track
Suitable: Juniors 11+, Seniors All Levels

Middle and Long Distance Track Training

Speed or interval sessions take place on a Thursday night at Ashdown Track, catering for all abilities, from developing runners who’d never considered going to a track, to experienced middle and long distance runners looking to focus their work in a controlled environment.

Sessions vary throughout training cycles, trending from shorter-sharper work to build speed to sessions that develop that speed over longer distances. There are also occasional fitness tests to help benchmark runner progression.

Track fees apply (£2 per session for most club members). Feel free to turn up and try a few sessions before you commit, or have a chat with club members and coaches who will help answer any questions.
