Coach of the Month Geoff Bayliss is introducing a new hill session based on the Severn Bridge cycle track and the hill up from the tunnel. Meet at our usual 5k Time Trial start on the upriver track at 7.20 ready for drills and 30 mins of continuous running .
The 30 min session comprises laps, with each lap including a long and short hill. Put in good effort pace (10k) up the long hill and 5k effort up the short hill. Use the downhill sections to recover. Practice pace judgement and aim for consistent lap times. Practice your running form.
Thursday is scheduled for a practice of our Club Champs Night Race on 21 Nov. So bring along your head torch and off-road shoes for some running round a circuit of Great Barnetts Wood. There'll be a briefing in the bar at 6.50.
And finally, on Sunday it's the 2nd Gwent League at Bridgend. This is a special one as it incorporates the East Wales Cross Country Championships, and will be a selection event for the E Wales team at the Welsh Inter Regional Champs at Builth Wells on 14 December. Compared to the Pontypool course, the Bridgend course is almost billiard table flat!
