Weekday Early Mornings

                               OLWEN'S EARLY MORNING RUNNING SESSIONS


Tuesdays - The Hamptons hill reps in Mayflower Park, or 1k or 1 mile loops

Thursdays - SJH Playing Fields or Green Lane for various speed distances

MEETING POINT - Meet at the gates of Sir Joseph Hood Memorial Playing Fields, Marina Avenue, Motspur Park, KT3 6NE at 6.00 am. 

Each session covers 6-8 miles inc. warm up/warm down.

We have swapped our speed and hill sessions round, so that the hills are now run on a Tuesday and the speed sessions on a Thursday. We have found this extremely beneficial from the point of view that we recover more quickly from a speed session. This means tht if we are racing on a Sunday the body has recovered in time for us to run at a more comfortable level. In fact, we have found that the Sunday runs in general go much better too, with the legs not being as tired.

How to find us: If you travel by train from Wimbledon (two stops), take the stairs on the left by the Earl Beatty pub, cross over the zebra crossing and Marina Avenue is on your right, along here for 50m to the park entrance (a 3 minute walk).

If you can't make the club's evening sessions but can drag yourself out of bed, you are welcome to come and join us. We always turn out, even on dark, cold, wet, winter mornings.

We train hard, but we are also a sociable, friendly group who celebrate birthdays with cake and bubbles immediately after the training session in the pavilion.

(Trains to Wimbledon/Waterloo leave Motspur Park at approx 08.04, 08.16 and 08.20).
