Sessions are not held on University holidays and will only be cancelled if the forecast temperature is >360C. If it is hot, raining or smoky we will modify the session.

We will be training in small groups (< 10 people) and will comply with social distancing and hygiene practices as advised by the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) COVID-19 Community Sporting Guidelines.

Mondays 12.15pm – easy run or tempo sessions

Meet at Princes Park (see above for location) for warm-up (~15 mins).

Beginners – 1/2 lap (1.5 km) or 1 lap (3 km). Working on running the whole way at an easy pace.

Non-beginners – 2 laps (6 km) of Princes Park – tempo pace.

Wednesdays 12.15pm – interval sessions

Meet at Princes Park (see above for location) for warm-up (~15 mins).

Interval sessions for beginners/working on fitness: Pace of the interval is slightly above what is comfortable when running continuously. Recovery time in the square brackets can be a walk or slow jog.

Interval sessions for others: Hard pace, but not flat-out, so that you can maintain consistent pace every repetition. Recovery time in the square brackets is a slow jog.
