    Is it me or are the sessions becomming less varied? For example, the Tuesday session for groups 1 – 3 is very similar to sessions we have done on three of the last four Tuesdays!

      The training sessions have been planned over a period of months. At this time of year the club training is focussed on racing over specific distances. They are generic to a certain extent as they are for over 100 runners! There are certain races in mind that the training is a tool for.

        My comment wasn’t meant to be a criticism of the set sessions. I appreciate how difficult it must be for the coaches to set suitable sessions to cater for everyone but we do seem to have been doing a few very similar sessions over the last few weeks.
