Biggest issue when racing is lactate removal efficiency. This kind of session helps your body practice but also helps you find your limit. Where are you meeting to do these sessions? Who's coaching? Keen to know what's going on in Leeds these days... :-)
The coach is Phil Townsend and everyone meets at South Leeds stadium. Most of the sessions are around there on very scenic industrial estates ;)
Ha! yep, not the prettiest of places.
Its dark - everything will look the same ;-)
