Track Running Workout for Beginners (Coached by an OLYMPIAN)

28th August 2019

If you’re new to running and are looking to get a bit quicker – maybe break a 5k or parkrun PB – then running on a track is a great way to focus on getting a bit faster. Team GB Olympian Andy Baddeley (who also happens to hold the parkrun world record, so knows a lot about this) has teamed up with The Running Channel to take you through a basic track session you can try yourself.

Thanks to the guys at LDN City Runners for having us along to their session for the evening.

FULL WORKOUT:
3-4 laps warm up jog (1200-1600m)
Dynamic stretching and movement drills
3-4 x 80m strides
2 sets of (3x 400m with 90s rest) with 3 minute jog recovery between sets
2-4 laps warm down jog (800-1600m)
