Week 1 of the new schedule! - but really it's Week 9 Congrats on all of those fast miles this week, Chasers! This week, we will be starting part 2 of the schedule, appropriately named The Great Lockdown Escape. We are continuing with paired runs over the next few weeks, but then we will be able to start back with groups of 6 and track from March 29th! The next 6 weeks will be leading up to a 3k race, which we are hoping to be able to schedule in at Parliament Hill Track in some shape or form – stay tuned and keep your fingers crossed. This week’s speed session (or workout of the week), will be a pretty straightforward but challenging one: 5-6 x {800m (at your 5k pace) [400m jog recovery]}. Total of 4000-4800m hard with 2000-2400m recovery If you don’t feel like measuring out 800m or treking way over to Paddington Recreation ground where the track is still open, then you can either do a time-based option based on what your customized schedule on the website says (preferred option!!) or try the following: 5-6 x {3 min (at your 5k pace) [2 min jog recovery]}. Total of 15-18 min hard with 10-12 min recovery Get at least a good 10-15 min of easy running before and after the session to warm up and cool down. Happy Running! Sarah Training Leaderboard Last week’s winner on the 1 mile time trial was Henry Woodward. He topped the leaderboard both for his percentage score (108.81%) and for the fastest mile (4:49 by GPS, but 4:59 in reality - he was running on a measured track). His handicap goes from 74.71% to 78.16%. This week’s challenge is 5-6 sets of 800m at your 5k pace with 400m jog recoveries.

Running with others is a great part of training plans - whatever your goal and running level. Remember, any member can post a run, at any pace, distance and time. It's a really useful tool to connect with other Chasers and find runners of a similar pace to you. It's also a great way to set yourself a new goal - perhaps join a run that pushes you out of your comfort zone?
