The Week Ahead 4 Oct 2010

A new month and a new coach in charge – for October it’s Ivan.


First a reminder that we all need to wear a reflective top so that you can be seen by traffic, and if it helps you, a head torch.


On Tuesday we’re out on the roads, though Ivan’s keeping the route a secret. It’s a fartlek session, so a run round with bursts of speed. Sounds good eh?After the run, John’s bringing in the latest Club kit, so bring in some money and splash out on some new stuff.


Back to the winter routes on Thursday, starting with the Boughspring routes, any one of three depending on how long a run you want  - six. seven or eight miles.


And you can bring all this training to fruition by doing the first cross-country of the season in the Gwent League at Bridgend on Sunday. All the best runners enjoy the benefits of the xc races – good hard races for the training effect and race experience; soft ground which is easier on the body and makes you work hard; uneven ground that works and strengthens your core muscles, tendons and ligaments; no entry fees; the opportunity to score points for Chepstow and yourself in your age category; and the fun of being in the team and sharing tasty cakes! What’s not to like?


Some of the Gwent Leagues are a bit of a drive, but we always meet to share cars, and the Leisure Centre Leagues are much nearer to home. We’ll be posting the leaving time for Sunday later in the week. Have a look at the course and start times on the GL website linked from our Club only Events page.


The Club Captains would like to know if you’re planning to run, so enter your name on the Bulletin Board on

  1. We're meeting at 11.30 to drive to Bridgend.

    Andy Bray is coming as Team Manager. So you need to report to him for registering yourself in the race, and also to give him your E Wales Champs entry form and £1.
