Thursday Pace Session

So here’s what happens on a regular Thursday night out with the SLGR gang.

With the April GP event, the Chatham 10k and also the Paddock Wood half on Sunday, it’s going to be a busy weekend for SLGR. So it was the perfect time to work on race pacing for these events.

We met at the Premier Inn by the Bridge in Dartford and headed around the corner for our session. With everyone having worked out what pace they should be running at for their chosen event distance we started with 12 minutes at that pace with a 90 second recovery before 4 lots of 3 minutes at threshold pace with 60 second recoveries followed by another 12 minutes at race pace. A tough session but great to get your head around the pacing and the second 12 minutes is also fat burning time as you have used up your store of readily accessible energy on the intervals so the body starts working on the fats instead. It’s a win, win.

We would love to see more of you at our club sessions, they move around but are generally within a set area so that no one gets left behind and everyone works at their own pace and ability. If you are not yet a club member but would like to have a try, we are happy to offer a couple of free trial sessions before you decide, membership packages start from as little as £15 for non affiliated. Keep an eye on Facebook for where we are at each week.

Here’s some slightly blurred pics of our session, you can see everyone is smiling cos they are having soooooooo much fun.
