The Week Ahead 28 July 2014

A two-parter on Tuesday.

First, our new club favourite, the Paarlauf, on the track. Find yourself a partner of similar speed and take it in turn to run half a lap, followed by the jog across the track to take over when your mate has done their half lap.

Second, coach Ivan has another relay lined up. So much speedwork, so much quality training.

3 Woods clockwise on Thursday.

A nice quiet week in which to train hard and rest hard.

Change of Run Tonight (Thurs 24 July)

We're going to do the old faithful Gloucestershire Way tonight, as we haven't been able to put together and map the advertised run which was going to take us through Sedbury and Tidenham.

Apols for any disappointments, and we'll try the new route again when we've sorted out some footpath change problems.

The Week Ahead 21 July 2014

Tuesday's training is 6/8 x 600 metres with 200m jog recovery.

Thursday's run is due to be Wye Bridge, Sedbury Lane, across the fields to the Diving Centre, past Tidenham church, across fields to Boughspring, back along Glos Way or Offa’s.

The July Club Champs race is the Devil's Chimney Chase on the Cotswold edge south of Cheltenham, 6pm Saturday. See the Club Champs page for more details.

And finally, our Magor Marsh 10k on Sunday. I believe Bill has enough helpers, so why not have a run on this PB course?

The Week Ahead 7 July 2014

The third Rose Inn on Tuesday. Thanks to those helping and bona fortuna to those running!

A new venture for us on Thursday - we're meeting at 7 at the Old Ferry Inn at Beachley for a Mixed Relay. We'll all be split into teams of three consisting of one A/B Group runner, a C/D runner as a E/F runner. It's a 2.6 mile flat course, to be followed by chip butties and a drink in the pub after.

Either meet at the LC car park ready to leave at 6.45, or try to share cars if you go direct. But be at Beachley before 7.

Ad finally, the next in the Club Fell Series is the Fan-y-Big 10 miler near Brecon. See Niki's postings for full details.
