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).
Tuesday sessions are slightly shorter rep sessions and we generally keep most reps less than 1 mile.
We also cover slightly more overall 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 V02 max 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.
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:
- January to end March: Half Marathon & Marathon
- April to July: Road & Track Running
- July to October: Shorter distance, 10K & Half Marathon
- November to December: Cross Country
