Tuesday Track

Start Time - 19:15 (some will be warming up from 19:00)

Meeting point - 200m line, just inside the track 

Tuesday Track sessions take place at Battersea Park Millennium Arena. The track charges £4.50 which includes use of the showers and changing rooms (lockers £1 coin refunded).

  • Please be warmed up for the session
  • When running on the track please keep single file in lane 1 unless overtaking
  • When you are finishing a rep please clear the track immediately 

The session:

Tuesday sessions are slightly shorter rep sessions and we generally keep most reps less than 1 mile. 

We also cover slightly more distance on the Tuesday session so it really is a good tough session for those really looking at improving and building on their speed.

Most sessions are loosely based on V02max speed. I.e. your 3km pace. This session will improve you bodies ability to transport oxygen which is then used to break down fuels which ultimately control your energy and pace.

Training Phases:

Clapham Chasers aim to provide not just varied training sessions but also training progression based on typical competition seasons. To support this we have broken the track training calendar down into phases, with each phase developing towards the peak of that season. If you don't happen to be training for a race that phase was designed for don't worry, just adapt the speed and repetitions to suit your focus. You can always ask our advise on our Facebook page. The phases are:

- August to November: Shorter distance, 10K & Half Marathon

- November to January: Cross Country

- January to end March: Half Marathon & Marathon

- April to end July: Road & Track Running

2018 Nov / Dec Session Plan up until Marathon Training Schedule which kicks off in Jan
If you join sessions later in the plan you might need to adapt them by making the number of repetitions or intensity slightly less until you have built up your track / speedwork to that level.
