To comply with guidance from both the UK Government and England Athletics we regrettably have to suspend group training sessions until further notice.
We know that many people would like to continue with their training and would encourage individuals to do this responsibly – but would specifically ask that training sessions aren’t organised from the pool nor the club’s social media pages used to organise 1 plus 1 gatherings.
This month’s training sessions – to be carried out in accordance with the latest government guidelines – can be viewed below,
(terms; GRP – Goal Race Pace, 10MP – 10 Mile Race Pace, HMP – Half Marathon Pace)
Tuesday 2nd: Hills – 12 minutes effort (e.g. 12 x 1 minute, or 6 x 2 minutes), jog back to start as recovery
Thursday 4th: 2 sets (1, 2, 3, 4 mins), @ 5K GRP, with half recoveries
Tuesday 9th: 3 sets (3 mins @ 10K GRP/3 mins @ 5K GRP/3 mins @ 10K GRP), 3 mins jog recoveries between sets

All sessions should include warm-up and cool-down runs.
When restrictions are lifted, people interested in trying out a TBH training session are welcome to contact the club.
Let’s keep fit, keep strong and most important of all, keep one another healthy.
