The Week Ahead 30 Sept 2013

Ivan takes over as Coach of the Month and takes us down to Thornwell for 4(DEF groups) or 5(ABC) Loops.
The Session starts at 7.20, so if you're running down make sure you leave in plenty of time.
Slower runners may want to drive partway or all the way. If all the way, leave time for a dynamic warm-up before 7.20.
The Boughspring runs of approx. 5,6 or 7 miles are on schedule for Thursday. Anti-clockwise.
Don't forget your reflective top for both days and head torch for the dark lanes on Thursday.

The Week Ahead 23 Sept 2013

It seems like months since we jogged down to the Link Road for a Tuesday session. I think that's probably because it is. Anyway Coach Dave has come up with a new session of 4 or 5 uphill 800 metres, with an 800 downhill recovery.
It also seems like months since we lined up for a Severn Bridge 5k Time Trial. I wonder why...
Anyway be on the line for the usual 7.30 start.
I think Dave would be delighted to hear from anyone not running who can help with timekeeping or the turn-round point.
And finally the Sept Club Champs race is the Oldbury 10 miler on Sunday. Still time to enter for this flat, fast, well-organised event.

The Week Ahead 16 Sept 2013

Well, our Tuesdays on the track this season have been so popular that it's with some regret that the Autumn evenings are driving us on to the lamp-lit roads. First up, under the direction of Coach Dave Somersall, probably assisted by MC Chris Rees, is the short jog to the Danes for 4 laps of the Danes Loop.
Don't forget your reflective top!
Then Thursday's run is down to Beachley and back, via the Wyebank estate to make it a good long run, but miss the detour out if you're only after a short one.

St Arvans MT10 2013 Results

Well done to all those that completed our challenging MT run around the St Arvans environs today.

The Week Ahead 9 Sept 2013

Tuesday's MC Andy Creber will introduce the final track session of this year - 3 or 4 sets of 1km and 800 metres - led by Coach Dave Somersall.
And on Thursday take advantage of the last off-road run of the season along the Wye Valley Walk under the direction of MC Gerry Ashton.
The third running of the St Arvans MT10 starts at 10.30 on Sunday. We're still short of a couple of marshals, one of them to man a junction in Chepstow Park Wood: ideal for a mountain bike rider or someone fancying a run.

St Arvans MT 10 Sunday 15 Sept - Please Help

Lou’s not available to direct this year’s race, but we’re organising  it along the lines of previous years.
So if you can help this year, please let me know with any preference for marshalling position, drink station, pre-race role (eg parking/course-marking/race entries) or post-race job (eg catering/washing up). Some people have already kindly offered their services on the Bulletin Board for which much thanks.
We’ll be providing cake and tea/coffee for all runners and helpers, so offers of cakes will also be gratefully received.
Many thanks

The Week Ahead 2 Sept 2013

Tuesday's MC Bram Fischer will introduce Dave Somersall as September's Coach of the Month. Dave is giving us 10 sets of 3 minute efforts on the track with 1 min jog recovery.
Last chance to do an away run on Thursday while the light lasts, but a head torch would be worth bringing along. It'll be in the Forest of Dean from the car park on the left past the Speech House on the Cinderford road. Be there at 6.45. We'll be sharing cars at the LC at 6.15.
A choice of 4.5 or 6 miles. Tasty refreshments at the finish!
And finally on Sunday morn at 9 from the LC bottom car park, our Club Duathlon. Bike to Chep Pk Wood via Tintern, run round the Handicap Course, bike back via Devauden and Itton. Separate classes for road bikes and off-roaders.
