Instructions

Following on from last weeks outdoor session, we got another one for you. This one is aimed at improving your fitness and recovery times, so will be especially good for people who play team sports.

Set your cones up in the same cross pattern as last time, each cone, 5 paces apart. Then add another 3 cones in a straight line, x20, x40 and x60 paces away.

Cone pattern

You start and end at the “south” of the diamond grid. Start the stop watch and see how long it takes you to run to the:

  • Centre cone
  • West cone
  • Centre cone
  • North cone
  • Centre cone
  • East cone
  • The 20 pace cone
  • South cone.

Record how long that took you, then take an equal time to rest (so if it took you 33 seconds to run the course, take 33 seconds to rest).

Then you repeat it, but this time running out to the 40 pace cone. Again record the time it took you and take equal rest.

Repeat the process again for the 60 pace cone, then the 40 pace cone and finally for the 20 pace cone again.

Let’s do it!
