For those of you who want to continue with our planned track sessions while the Jim Peters Stadium is closed, the planned track session for Tuesday 24 March is below. You don’t have to do the session at 7.00pm on Tuesday – try it whenever you feel like it, and let us know how you get on!


Approx 800m gentle jog and some dynamic warm-up exercises (e.g. leg swings, lunges, ankle rotations) – no static stretching of cold muscles please!

Main set: 800m repetitions

6 x 800m with 200m active recovery between each.

If you don’t want to keep checking your watch, the big field outside the Splash Park in Barking park is roughly 800m. Run one lap and then walk or jog one side as your 200m recovery.

 Your pace for the 800m rep should be just over your normal 5k pace.

Try and maintain a consistent pace throughout the whole session – your last rep should be about the same speed as your first.

Cool down:

3-4 laps gentle jog/walk, then stretches.
