Our Training Sessions

Monday Night

(The Recovery Run)
7:00pm Hutton Moor Leisure Centre
A fairly easy paced road run of around 7 miles. Everyone runs as a group on Mondays, at a pace determined by the coach. Faster runners will double back at various checkpoints. New runners are encouraged to come along to Tuesday training in order to find out more about the club before joining the Monday night group.

Tuesday Night

(Efforts Session)
In the winter months meet on the prom (in the square shelter halfway between the Trop and the Royal Sands end of the seafront)
In the summer months meet on the sports field behind Hutton Moor Leisure Centre
We start with a short warm up and then run a session of repetitions over various distances or times, with recovery intervals between them. If you are really looking to improve your times, this session will do it for you. The training is structured so that whatever your standard you will not be left behind. Work as hard as you like or take it easy - it's up to you.

Thursday Night

(The Road Run)
7:00pm Hutton Moor Leisure Centre
We use a variety of different circuits to provide a steady road run of between 4 and 8.5 miles. We usually split into 5 or 6 different groups according to standard, which allows everyone to do the course at a suitable pace. All of the routes have points where the course may be shortened if you do not feel like completing the whole distance. Our regular circuits include Fartleking, Five Hills Puff, Four Bridges Grunt, Old Slog, Morrisons Run and Graveyard Run

Saturday Morning Cycling

(On Yer Bike)
The club cyclists are usually out on Saturday mornings for a road ride of around 50 or 60 miles. Normal start time is 8:15am (but later in deep Winter due to it being dark at 8.45am), with a mid-route 'Big Breakfast' stop. The meeting place is normally by the school gates opposite the Sainsburys store in Worle. If you are thinking about a triathlon or just want a bit of cross training, these sessions will help. They're also not bad if you just like a good breakfast.

(Saturday Efforts) 8:00am meeting at various locations as advertised weekly on the Weston AC home page. Sessions generally include hill repeats at Uphill or Worlebury Woods or interval / lactic threshold training on the Prom.

The Long Sunday Run

(Over the Hills and Far Away)
If you have a marathon in mind (or even a half), this is the one that you must not miss. The long, slow run provides the platform for all of your training. On most Sunday mornings, there are one or two groups of runners out, with options of between 12 and 21 miles. Most of the runs are off-road and are taken at an easy pace. (With the hills we find to run up there is really only one pace available). Start times are normally between 8am and 9am.
