Running and training sessions
The Harriers hold regular training sessions and social runs in and around Romsey throughout the year.
Tuesday training sessions, 6:15 - 7pm
Our training sessions are designed to improve speed and stamina. Sessions include:
Pyramids, for example: 400m, 500m, 600m, 500m, 400m and repeat (with rests between each effort)
Intervals, for example: 400m effort, 1 minute rest x10
Stamina session, for example: 1 lap at 5k race pace, 1 lap recovery pace, repeat for 30 minutes
During summer we run on the grass running track at Mountbatten School.
In winter we run at the industrial estate on Premier Way (see maps below); during winter the first Tuesday of the month is a road run, meeting at Halterworth School instead of the industrial estate.
Weekend social runs
We have two regular weekend social runs:
Saturdays at 7:30am from Halterworth School
Sundays at 9am from the top of Seward Rise
These runs are at a comfortable pace and usually involve stops for photos and chats. All speeds and abilities are welcome. Distances are usually 8 to 10k, but occasionally the mood takes us to go on further or to cut it short.
Ad hoc runs and race training
No matter what the day, and sometimes regardless of the weather, one of us will be heading out for a social or race training run. We use our active What's App and email group that we use to plan our ad hoc runs.
