Farewell

Nottingham City Harriers was the name adopted by a group of runners at the end of 2003 who, upon resignation from a local athletics club, set up their own independent training sessions.

The numbers have dwindled over the years and traveling to training venues at rush hour has got ever more difficult with worsening traffic conditions. So it has been decided to end the informal group from 17th January 2018, the remaining individuals continuing in a private capacity.

Many thanks to the runners who have supported these sessions over the years but we hope to still see some of you from time to time in the future.

Training and Racing Tuesday 1 February - Sunday 6 February 2005
Tuesday 1 February - 6:30 pm - Nottingham Tennis Centre
10 mile, Wilford at various paces including easy 10 mile run at 65% - 75% effort and the option of a 7.5 mile short-cut. Geoff's Group as usual though figure of 8 to enable me to drop out if foot problem recurs.

Coach Henderson has proposed that we do a Tempo run (see here for details). Essentially, it involves ~30 min warm-up (less than 75% WHR), ~30 min building into ~10M race pace (~85% WHR), then ~15 min cool-down.




Thursday 3 February - 6:30pm - Tennis Centre
Easy Run, 7 Miles at 65-75%, around Wollaton or Wilford, whatever suits your need!

Coach Henderson has suggested a hill session. ~20 min warm-up, bit of tempo running then up and down a decent hill a few times (perhaps Cripp's Hill might suffice), then a decent cool-down.

Saturday 5 February 9:00am - St. Leonard's Drive, Wollaton (Park)
University and Park run of 1 hour at an easy pace, 65-75% RHR or WHR.

Sunday 6 February 9:00am - Nottingham Tennis Centre
12 to 17 mile run, to Holme Pierrepont, canal and river, back to the Tennis Centre.
