Our 8 week track performance course is for those who can run 5-10km and want to improve their running speed and form. It also ties in with the Claygate 5 run.  

Each week is broken down into 3 key training sessions:
 
Speed session: These sessions help you improve your leg speed and your ability to "pick it up" in a race. It will train your body to work at a higher heart rate than you are used to using your aerobic energy pathway.
 
Tempo session: These will improve your lactic threshold (the point at which your body reverts to using the lactic energy system and produces lactic acid) and train you to run for longer periods at a higher level of intensity. 
 
Long run: This will improve your VO2 max and resistance to fatigue. VO2 max is the maximal ability of an individuals to take in, transport and utilise O2 during exercise using the aerobic energy systems. As you become fitter, your VO2 max improves. You will therefore be able to run for longer without fatigue.
 
Coaching on running techniques is also provided.
 
Please note there will be an additional £3.3 track fee per week payable to the athletics track office.
