Thursday 19 January: Hill Pyramids


To those hardy souls who braved the cold between Christmas and New Year, this week’s will be a familiar session (although we’ll try and alter it slightly). With one eye on this weekend’s PECO cross country we will run a pyramid session on the grass hill in front of the house. Trail shoes might be advisable. Don’t forget hi-vis or reflective clothing and accessories and lights if you have them – it really helps everyone in the group.

A pyramid workout is useful as it mixes up the reps you do, rather than the same distance each time. Psychologically as you are coming back down the pyramid, even though you are increasingly tired it’s easier to keep putting the effort in as the distance gets shorter. Keep pushing right ‘over the top’ of the hill for maximum benefit.

Please meet up as normal 6:30pm and jog warm up to just in front of Temple Newsam House.
