HERNE HILL HARRIERS MIDDLE/LONG DISTANCE TRAINING – SENIOR ATHLETES
Group GJ/KN – run by Geoff Jerwood & Keith Newton
We are the self styled sharp end middle/long distance group based at Tooting Bec Athletics Track on Tuesdays, with off track sessions on Thursdays and on non racing Saturdays. We complement the other training groups rather than compete with them and strive for excellence – putting the needs of our athletes first and foremost – current group aged anything from 17 to 60, but it is more about your running speed and your work ethic….
Interested in joining in a session? Our training sessions are typically as follows:-
Long run group – Tooting Bec track, Tooting Bec Road, London SW17 10.30 AM
Meeting at the Athletics track, training distances and pace varies
Or “sharp end” long group often meets at 9.45 AM Brockwell Park meeting by the Herne Hill Gate ready to run for between 60-145 min, options within the overall run.
Check with Geoff re this group before meeting up
TUESDAY EVENINGS 7.15 – 8.30 PM
Winter sessions are now alternating between track sessions and sessions on Tooting Common opposite the Athletics Track – please contact Geoff if unsure whether it is a track or off track week
We meet accordingly either inside the track or at the car park opposite the track ready to start our sessions at 7.15pm
We typically do tempo runs and/or reps of time durations ranging from one min to 5 min building up to a total of 20-25 min of reps (e.g. 6 x 4 min reps OR 5 min tempo followed by 6 x 3 min reps OR 2 sets of 8 x 90 sec reps).
Our winter training is mainly endurance building equally suitable for athletes training for 800m/1500m or cross country or marathon.
THURSDAY EVENINGS 7.15 – 8.15 PM
Most Thursdays we run hill reps meeting at the top of Streatham Common South at the junction of Covington Way by the café and the Rookery.
We typically run 6-10 by reps of a road hill that is 60-70 sec duration for the faster runners. Occasionally we may run some short reps at our Tuesday location on Tooting Common, but this would be no more than once every 5 or 6 weeks.
