This Week’s Training Sessions

Please remember that all good training plans should include the appropriate amount of rest and recovery and that the wide range of training sessions offered each week by the club is to enable us to cater for all abilities and availabilities - no-one expects anyone to attend all the sessions!!!!

Lovebox and Citadel Music Festivals will be taking place in Gunnersbury Park on the weekend of 12th to 14th July; there may also be works dismantling the sets in the w/c 15th July. During this period, the path through the middle of the park might not be accessible. However, it appears that the perimeter path of the park can still be used and so the Monday and Wednesday 7.30pm club runs should not be affected.

Those Eagles who run in Richmond may want to note that because of refurbishment works, Richmond Lock Footbridge is scheduled to be closed until the beginning of December 2019. For the Sunday long run, you will need to cross the river at Twickenham Bridge which is the next bridge along – a diversion of about 0.5mile (0.7k).

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

Wednesday 17th July

6.30pm Introduction to Intervals - meet in Lammas Park near the Clovelly Road entrance for a session including warm-up, drills / strength and conditioning and intervals (8x1min at a hard but controlled effort with 1min walking break). We will be staying in Lammas Park so you don't need to worry if you will be faster or slower than the pack. For runners new to running, this is a good session as it's not too long a distance. If you are more experienced but happen to want a session on Wednesday rather than Thursday (the normal day for Lammas intervals), you are welcome to come along  as it's a chance to ramp up the pace but, having a relatively short rest, work the anaerobic system.

There will also be races for children and relays and the host club provides refreshments.
