Training- Track Session

Usual Track session.

I am currently experiencing writer's block, so no prose, or poem this time :)

We meet at 7.30 PM SHARP in the entrance lobby of the stade Emile Anthoine (esp in this time's freezing conditions).

Look for the guy with the hoodie and the Starbucks coffee cup mascarading as a coach :)

You can leave your stuff at the stadium, under the shelter at the edge of the track, I won't be running so you can I'll be keeping on eye on everything; so don't worry about bringing laptops, jewelry etc (although I might be tempted to snatch a Garmin watch if I see one.. jk)

There are toilets and changing rooms available, although since this is France, I would not recommend going there if you are concerned about sanitary/hygiene issues.

Most importantly, come to the track with your motivation, good vibes, and upbeat mood, because my sole objective during the session will be to make you break a sweat or two. I will not consider the session a success until at least a few of you have stumbled/tripped/collapsed/passed out. jk. but not really.

    Hi Nick - I am planning to join your sessions in about a month when I arrive. What do your track sessions involve? Do you break into speed groups? And how long are they?
    Thanks very much and hope to see you soon.

      Hi Jenn! Good to hear you're interested in our sessions!

      Our track sessions are aimed at improving both strength and speed, through sets of short-distance intervals.

      The session typically starts with a short warm-up, followed by a couple of speed exercises, the most famous example of which being Yassos (series of 800m sprints), considered one of the best exercises for improving marathon time. We then finish our sessions with 10-15 minutes of stretching.

      The session isn't split up into speed groups, but we welcome runners of every capacity, and we have a wide variety of speeds at our sessions; as long as you give it your all, that's all that matters :) And since we run laps around the track, there's no risk of anyone being dropped :)

      Don't hesitate to come check our track session out once u're settled in Paris.

      Cheers Ari.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
