GLASGOW HILL RUNNING INTERVAL SESSIONS

Winter 2016/2017

Nov 2016 – March 2017

Tuesday Sessions: Reps – Winter 2016/2017

Time:   6.20pm (ready to start at 6.30pm)

Venue: Various locations in and around Glasgow Tuesday reps – maps

Sessions in the winter are mainly inside parks on tarmac paths (the Fartleks are on a mixture of grass, paths and tarmac). They normally consist of running 4-8 times up to the top of the hill and then we have a jog recovery back to the bottom. The paths are in good condition but in places it can be quite dark so be careful, and bring a head torch if you are more comfortable with its help. The fartlek sessions consist of a continuous run of 60-70 minutes including a variety of efforts.

Whilst we encourage everyone to do the suggested session, runners are of course free to do as many or as few reps as they want and sometime we suggest short-cuts as well. Our aim is to make the efforts hard, but still fun!

Sessions are run by Shettleston Harriers but open to all runners of all abilities and any club or none – please invite your friends too!

Thursday Sessions:  thursday-winter-2016-17-sessions

Time: 6.20pm (ready to start at 6.30pm)

Venue: Glasgow Green / Crownpoint Road track Green Map  Crownpoint Map

We meet at Glasgow Green, by the footbridge over the Clyde at 6.20pm for the warm up, ready for a prompt start at 6.30pm.

The sessions are for any Seniors or older juniors (and NB not just the hill runners – they are flat routes!!). Sessions are run by Shettleston Harriers but open to all runners of all abilities and any club or none – please invite your friends too!

Sessions at the Green are within the park on tarmac paths, or else on firm well-lit grass. So suitable for all weathers (just about)!

Whilst we encourage everyone to do the suggested session, runners are of course free to do as many or as few reps as they want and we can suggest short-cuts as well. Our aim is to make the efforts hard, but still fun.

Sunday Off Road Sessions

We are proposing some Sunday group run sessions over the winter. We will co-ordinate car share to the venues (start times to be confirmed).

As with all our sessions, these are led by Shettleston, but all are welcome!
