Latest Junior News – Training ideas and support Week 7

As we all know club training is suspended due to the current lockdown.
We will hopefully be returning to Ivybridge Community College in early April but we will confirm this
Unfortunately we cannot offer any direct coaching at the moment but we are posting an online weekly programme here.
There is also useful information on our online training page here >>>

The England Athletics and Running at home page here >>> has access to a host of useful tips and videos including the Athletics 365 curriculum which is an excellent resource for all young athletes.

Training ideas for week beginning 22nd Feb.
Session 1.
Warm Up and drills. Try these >>>

Viaduct hills (or similar)
Starting at the bench, run to the top and jog back.
Start slower and get faster
Repeat 5 – 8 times.
Any hill will doo providing it is quiet

Warm down

Session 2

Tempo run over 1000m (flat course)
Run at slightly below race pace (heart rate 150 – 160)
Max 5 with a 1 min recovery

Session 3 (indoor or outdoor)

Don’t forget to warm up and cool down

These are ideas only the key thing is to keep doing activity. Walking and cycling are also good.
