Route map preview for Track: 200m + 400m + 600m + 800m with 200m recoveries (30 mins)

This speedwork session will be efforts of 200m, 400m, 600m and 800m, with 200m recovery jog/walk in between each effort. We will time the session at 30 minutes, so do as many efforts as you can during that time.

You should aim to run the shorter efforts at your "repetition" pace and the longer efforts at “interval” pace, which is around about your 5K pace - you can calculate an accurate value at http://runsmartproject.com/calculator/. The session is aimed at improving your leg strength and aerobic efficiency.

Route map preview for Group run: River Irwell Tour

This week we head through Spinningfields and into sunny Salford, following the course of the River Irwell to "The Meadow", where we'll do a couple of laps. We'll then head across the river to Peel Park, taking a left after the bridge to the bottom of hill-rep hill, then doubling-back down along the riverside to the far end of Peel Park, before turning towards home and heading back through Peel Park, along Salford Crescent and towards the Y Club.

We meet at the Y Club reception at 6:30pm. After a quick warm up, the Captains will gather the group together for Club Notices, after which we’ll split into sub-groups before we head off on the run.

Each group will run at a different pace and will be led by a club member, so there should always be a pace group suited to you. The number of groups is flexible depending on the number of runners down on any particular night, but we’ll generally have the following four pace groups:

- Group 1: 7.00 min / mile (4.20 min / km) +/- 30 secs

- Group 2: 7.30 min / mile (4.40 min / km) +/- 30 secs

- Group 3: 8.30 min / mile (5.20 min / km) +/- 30 secs

- Group 4: 9.30 min / mile (5.50 min / km) +/- 30 secs

If you’re not sure which group to go in on your first visit, we'd advise starting off in Group 4 and try to work your way up to the next one!

Our routes are generally 6 - 8 miles (10 - 13km) but if you don't fancy running that far, we'll always offer a shorter alternative route of approximately 3 miles (5km).
