Weekly Training Session
Our main group activity is a weekly interval track session on Wednesday nights. A typical workout is 6 x 1,000m, although on the last Wednesday of the month we do a 5,000m time trial with a Japanese club. At these sessions we generally have 20-30 people, both men and women, ranging from fairly strong to rather slow runners. The training is at a nice all-weather track between Harajuku and Shibuya. A locker room with showers is available. We generally start warming up about 7:00 and start the workout at 7:35 (time trial at 7:25). After the workout we go to Shibuya for beer and food.
For these events, you don't need advance application, but you may confim with the organizer by phone. Usually, it's less than 1000Yen to take part and there are several distances (3/5/10k). Apllication is usually until 8am, start at 9am, but this may differ, so, please see the Japanese links below.
