Monday Track Sessions at Paddington (Foundation)

Starting on 19th October, Laura Fountain and Laura Stewart will lead a new Serpentine track session for seniors on Monday evenings at Paddington Track.

These sessions are aimed at those who are new to structured interval training, who want to improve their speed and endurance. They’re designed for foundation level runners who can comfortably run for 30 minutes (or 2 parks) and would expect to take more than 48 minutes to run a 10k. If you're new to running, the beginners course and Wednesday night runs are a good place to start until you're ready to introduce these types of session.

These coached session starts at 7pm with a brief introduction followed by a group warm-up. 

As well as interval training on the track, sessions will also include running drills and some strength exercises designed to improve your running.

By coming to these sessions you will be able to:

  • get comfortable training on an athletics track
  • improve your pacing
  • develop different running speeds
  • improve your running form, strength and mobility.

These sessions are designed help you get round your first 10k comfortably or improve your 10k PB. We suggest you use the Regents Park 10k on Sunday 6 December as a goal race.

You’re encouraged to supplement these sessions with the Wednesday night 2½ or 3 Parks run and the club handicap.

Location: Paddington Track. Lockers and free changing rooms are available by reception. There is no track fee for this session.
Start: 19:00 on 19th October. The session will be finished by 20:15pm.
