Training session – Intervals, Forest Edge Way

Leader: Steve Harvey
Meet at Shobnall Reception for a 7:00pm departure, then do a 1.4 mile warm up run to Forest Edge Way. If you can’t make it to Shobnall for 7:00 go directly to Forest Edge Way.
Forest Edge Way is a loop of 0.35 miles having an elevation gain of 22 feet for the first half of the lap, so the intervals will have a slight uphill and downhill. The course is in a residential area, crosses no roads, has good street lighting and has little traffic.
It’ll be the 2 sets of 5 x 2 minute efforts with 1 minute recovery between each; 5 minute break between sets.
