Want a safe and secure venue away from traffic, concrete and wolf whistles?

Then TNT is for you!

Some benefits of Interval Training…

Teaches you pace – Timing your intervals helps you get a feel for your speed. Your body gets to know different paces and how to maintain a rhythm.
Increases your speed – It’s no mystery. You’ll get faster by running faster.
Raises your anaerobic limit – This is the point where your muscles fatigue at a faster rate. Increase the limit with this speed training and you’ll run faster for longer.
Improves your form – Your body learns to run more efficiently and relaxed while running faster.
Adds to your endurance – This training also builds your strength and stamina.
Throws in variety – Mixing some speed with easy runs, long runs and hills rounds out your training.
Monitors your progress – Record your number of intervals, times and recovery in your running log. Over time you’ll see improvements e.g. more reps, faster reps, shorter recoveries, etc
Boosts your confidence – It’s a challenge to pace yourself, run faster or just finish a speed workout. Feel good that you’re putting in the effort.
Prepares you for racing – Learning pace, completing a workout when you’re tired all helps you mentally and physically for racing.
