Manchester Regional Athletics Arena

M11 3FF
Route map preview for Track: #TaylorSwift

Trying this session again after track was closed last week!

This speedwork session starts with 4 efforts of 90 seconds at your “interval” pace (around your 5K pace) with 1 minute of standing recovery between each effort, followed by two minutes of jog/walk for recovery. Then, it’s 4 efforts of 70 seconds at a faster pace, with 45 seconds standing rest between each effort - with another two-minute jog/walk recovery after these four efforts. Finally, it’s 4 efforts of 40 seconds at your “repetition” pace, with 30 seconds standing rest between each effort.

This is a variation of one of Lauren Fleshman’s sessions: https://blog.strava.com/wow-the-taylorswift-9516/ - thanks to Sarah Crandon for the original suggestion!

You can find calculate accurate values for your “repetition” and “interval” paces at http://runsmartproject.com/calculator/.

We will start the formal session at 7:00pm with some dynamic stretches - do a couple of warm up laps if you're ready before this. We will then do the main session. Afterwards, we will do a couple of easy laps to cool down and then some static stretching.
