Craig and Sarah organising a track session at Longford Park track. We will start with a few warm up laps at 6:15pm prompt and some dynamic stretches, before going in to the main session.

This is a 30-minute session, where you need to partner up with someone of a similar ability.

The session consists of 600-metre efforts, followed by 200-metres of walk/jog recovery. (i.e. One-and-a-half laps of effort, followed by half-a-lap recovery.)

Complete as many sets as you can in the 30 minutes.
