This Week's Training Sessions

W/C 21st May 2018

We are now using the SUMMER ROUTES on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please see the club run route page for the route details – works crossing the footpath at the top of Gunnersbury Park are planned and have been advertised so it may be necessary to run on the pavement outside the park. Please make sure you listen to the run leaders at the start of the club run sessions for announcements and safety information. 

If possible please wear something bright or hi viz to club run. 

Check Facebook for further details and any last minute changes, or email coaching@ealingeagles.com if you have any queries.

Hanger Hill Park, with an undulating path (of length 890m, 22m of ascent and descent and two main peaks) https://gb.mapometer.com/running/route_4731552.html, provides a good location for Mara’s session with options to practise:

- accelerating off the top of a hill;

- trying out different running forms;

- judging effort;

- recovering on the downhills;

- short hill sprints etc.

The session should give runners a chance to experiment a bit with different speeds & scenarios and will be suitable for all abilities from novice runners trying out hills for the first time to Welsh Castle Relay team members wanting some input on racing hills.
