Iron - I've got a track 20 secs away from my front door! It's now half as wide and tarmac with 'exercise' points round it. Obviously it's busy with bloody dog walkers and kids on scooters!! Weird as the other photos show my estate being built too!
That has always been the problem with the (or any) club track session AG. We get 20mins of quality if all goes well. I think I once pushed it on a quiet session and did 10x400 but that is normally unheard of.
I now prefer to spend less money going to the same track on my own and doing a different slightly, longer quality session. Horses for courses though as I prefer the club rides to going out on my own for a long one.
