Wednesday Night Interval Training

Wednesday nights are for more structured training planned by one of the experienced club leaders.  Sessions are varied with short intervals to help us get faster, hills to help us get stronger, longer intervals to build speed endurance and even the odd boot-camp.

All sessions are mixed ability.  We make use of the local parks in the summer months and the paths and hills on both sides of the Tyne, and provide a varied programme so that there should be something for everybody.  Some example session plans are shown below (click on name for a detailed plan).
