The Coached Sessions are open to all Glossopdale Harriers. They offer a wide range of interval training sessions including hill reps, threshold sets, race pace training, progression runs etc.
Its main aim is to add variety to your running training by offering a range of interval training session. This will make a runner stronger, more efficient, reduce the risk of injuries and ultimately run faster for longer.
We meet every Tuesday evening at 6:45. The location alternates between:
- The trail at Simmondley (Turning Circle of Green Lane in Simmondley)
- Corner of Pennine Road and Simmondley Lane at Coop Food in Simmondley
- Corner of Hurst Cresent (aka Dutch Corner) and Shirebrook Drive in Glossop
- Corner of North Road and Park Crescent (top of Howard Park)
- Lower Barn Road at The Chieftain pub in Hadfield.
You are advised to bring a stopwatch and on darker nights a head torch. Reflective and/or Hi-Viz clothing when on the roads is mandatory !

This chart can help you to give an indication what time you are capable of in a distance you may not have done before, based on a known time in another distance. I also use it to set individual target times for intervals during the Coached Sessions on Tuesdays.
