Weather - dry cold

Tonights track session consisted of 3 sets all to be run at 5k pace. First set was 4 x 3 minutes intervals, second set was 3 x 3 minute intervals and the last set was 2 x 3 minute intervals. There was a bout 3 minutes recovery between each set and a minute between each interval.

The secret was to run a consistent pace for all over this pyramid session. This is easier said then done but generally I was happy that I achieved this and I pretty much finished on the same point of the track each time.

I warmed up by running about a mile from home and then I did 4 laps around the track. I finished by running home.

Now that it is light it is even more enjoyable running on this track and we are very lucky to have such a facility in Bury.

    The track is very nice in bury do you know if you can use it at other times when it it not a club night?

  2. Yes this is my understanding though I have never done it. I believe you need to call and pay in advance I think about £2-3 for an hourly session. Alternatively why not come down on a Pacers Club night. You don't have to be a member in fact several people always attend who don't belong to clubs or belong to other clubs. If you arrive at 6.30 pm on a Mon or Wed it will cost you £2 as a non member of the Pacers. You are then free to join in with the planned training or to do your own thing .
