Football, running, football, running...

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

THOSE words would be music to the ears of most of us (okay, not the running bit) but Tuesday's session was a tough one as the squad hit the eighth day of pre-season training and started to look ahead to America.

The morning session was a combination of high-tempo football and running circuits.

The squad was split into four groups of five and as two groups played football, the other two clocked up the miles 'interval running' - ie, having to run a certain distance in a certain time - around the pitches at Spurs Lodge.

The lads played football, then ran, played football, then ran - and did it 10 times!

They followed that up with a session in the gymnasium after lunch.

It'a days like today that take Xtra back to all those tough summer evenings preparing for a hard season of Sunday football - one lap to warm up, Wembley doubles, a match and into the pub for a pint and pork scratchings...
