Welcome to Carnegie Harriers

Carnegie Harriers

If you love to run…. on the road, under the sun, cross country, in the snow, on the trails, in the rain, in the hills, in a team, as far as you can…. Carnegie Harriers is the club for you!

Whatever the distance or the discipline, there’s a good chance that a Harrier has been there, done it, and got the tee-shirt (or race memento) to prove it.

Whatever your interest, we welcome new members who have some running experience or a reasonable level of fitness. Explore our website to find out more about what our club has to offer you. Our latest news can be found here  and if you need to know more, or want to come along and try one of our regular training sessions, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us.

TRAINING PLAN APRIL 2018

Please see below for details of April’s training sessions. Also check further details on the training section of the website at

www.carnegie-harriers.co.uk/training/

Non Members Welcome
Non-members are welcome to come along to try out our sessions anytime. Don't worry if you don't understand some of the technical details, the sessions are explained in more detail on the night. Also, don’t be put off by description of the sessions, you need only do as much as you want or feel able.

If you are planning to come along for the first time, we would ask that you contact us first, preferably by email to enquiries@carnegie-harriers.co.uk so that we can provide you with a bit more information on the club and arrange to meet you on the night. Please make sure you turn up in good time as we aim to start the sessions promptly.

Session Aims
April sees the start of the spring/summer racing season, with two road and one hill GP event and, of course, various marathons and ultras coming up. The aim of the training this month is therefore to consolidate on the extensive endurance and, more recently, aerobic capacity sessions we’ve been doing over the winter months.

In addition, there will be some shorter, faster repetitions and pyramids which we know some of you like! Furthermore, we think that bringing in a couple of hill sessions at the Glen (Pittencrieff Park) will help mix things up a bit – there should always be room in peoples’ schedules for regular hill work, strength and conditioning.

We will also be offering the option of evening off-road runs and a couple of Sunday social runs, which may also feature trails as it is good to run on different surfaces.

Tuesday Sessions
With the advent of lighter evenings, we will return to the Glen on Tuesdays where we will be introducing a new, mixed pace session as well as hill repetitions.

The sessions will start at 6.05 pm or 6.50 pm prompt at the Peacock Café corner of the Glen Pavilion. If planning to run up from Pitreavie Sport and Soccer Centre, it’s approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) so aim to leave from there at either 5.45pm or 6.30 pm for an easy run up. If going direct to the session start point, allow time to warm up before the session start times.

Thursday Sessions
On Thursdays we will either head down to the path at Camdean for mixed pace pyramids or across to Duloch Park for some shorter, faster repetitions.

For the sessions at Camdean, meet at Pitreavie at 6.30pm for the run down.
For the sessions at Duloch Park, we start at the entrance to the Park, nearest to the shops, on Greenshank Drive. This is approximately 1.75 miles (2.8 km) from Pitreavie Sport & Soccer Centre (PSSC). Leave from Pitreavie at 6:30pm for an easy run up or meet at the starting point at 6:50pm already warmed up.

As we know some of you do not like running on hard surfaces, as an alternative on Thursdays, we will also be trialling off-road sessions. These will be suitable for all levels of runner and will comprise either a steady paced run with regular stops to re-group, or circuits for a pre-determined length of time or number of repetitions. We will monitor the level of interest to decide if, and how frequently, to continue these sessions throughout the summer months.
