Monday Night Interval Training

Why not try some Interval Training?

Improve your speed and endurance

No pace groups for this weekly session which runs every Monday at 7:30pm.  We aim to get you to run a little harder than you would ordinarily but there are built-in recovery periods so you get your breath back!

We operate a 4-week cycle of sessions and the meeting point varies:

Week 1 – Kilometre Repeats

Meet at Faversham Rec Car Park. This session is 5 laps of the perimeter of the Rec, with a two minute rest at the end of each lap. You will be aiming to run each lap at 10-15 seconds per kilometre faster than your regular 5k pace.

Week 2 – Hill Sprints

Meet at the junction of Lower Road and Ospringe Road – by the Post Box. Having become affectionately known as ‘The Growler’, this session is 10 all-out sprints up the first half of St Ann’s Road, then a gentle looped jog back to the starting point. Each loop is timed at 3 minutes so you get a bit of rest before the next sprint.

Week 3 – The Pyramid

Back at the Rec. This session again requires a slightly-faster-than-5k pace. 800m then 90 seconds rest; 1200m then 2 minutes rest; 1600m then 3 minutes rest; 1200m then 2 minutes rest; and finally 800m and done.

Week 4 – Hill Repeats

Meet on the Brents side of the ‘Swing’ Bridge. This session is a very loose figure-of-eight run taking in Brent Hill, Davington Hill and Bramblehill Road. It is an up and down route of just under 2km which we do three times with a five minute rest in between each repeat.

A good laugh and a long run are the two best cures for anything.
