A focus on steady hill climbing, with fast down hill bursts to overload the quads.
The ups these will be treated as the recovery leg, taking it nice and slow, regulating our breath and maintaining a good posture.
During the downhills, you'll be running fast, working on your speed, footwork and overloading the quads, something most runners rarely do.
You will be able to run each interval at your pace, so don't worry about keeping up with others.
Please bring a headtorch if you have one; otherwise, we can lend you one.
About Home Run
Home Run is our fortnightly training sessions, hosted on the trails of Hampstead Heath.
Each meetup focuses on a different aspect of running, helping you improve as an off-road athlete. We welcome people of all levels.
Sessions are typically on a Wednesday and we rotate between morning and evening.
Where We Meet
We start/finish each session at Parliament Hill Lido, right next to Gospel Oak overground station and a short walk from Tufnell Park.
After morning runs there is the option to enjoy a post run coffee/breakfast at the Lido Cafe and for evening runs we normally head to the Southampton Arms for a quick drink.
Sessions are led by Runaway Adventure's race director and coach, Chris Bradley.
We will also invite guest coaches to come in and run one-off sessions to keep things fresh.
