The Week Ahead 17 November 2014

On Tuesday we're doing a Kenyan Hills session, which differs from our usual hill reps in that we run the uphills at the same effort (not pace) as we do the downhills.So you'll be doing a continuous run at a steady effort with no recovery jogs on the downs.

Coach Mike has organised a jolly away run at Lydney on Thursday. He says:

As you drive into Lydney High Street from the Chepstow direction, 100 metres after the level crossing,turn right in front of The Swan Hotel. Hopefully someone will be stood in front of the the Hotel to direct you. After you turn, drive about 200/300 metres straight on, where I'll be positioned to point out the car park.
Please arrive by 19:00, then I can give out safety, course and coffee/tea/cake details, and we can start the run about 19:10.
Don't forget your head torch and reflective top. For those doing the short run, road shoes should be fine. If your doing the longer run, I'd advise off road shoes, as the trails and fields could well be very muddy, depending on the weather on the days preceding the run.

If you haven't already told Mike you're coming please put your name in the Comments box. 

And finally, on Saturday the Elan Valley 10 miler is November's Club Champs as well as the East Wales Regional Championships. Gold, silver and bronze medals are up for grabs in all age categories.

We're taking a coach from the Leisure Ctre: just £5 subsidised fare. Watch this space for leaving time.


  1. Where is Kenyan Hills stuff taking place please?

    1. Bayfield estate. So if you were leaving the LC and go down Kingsmark lane, it's the new houses over the main road. There's a slight hill with playground and fields each side of the road.

    2. A change of plan, James. You would have been right but Mike's decided to move elsewhere, prob the Severn Bridge slip road where we do the Long/Short hills. Watch this space.

  2. I can confirm tonight's session will be on the Severn Bridge slip road.

  3. For those coming along to the Away Run, please can I ask you to bring clean shoes, and dry cloths if it's raining, we can then keep the coffee shop as clean as possible. If we can do this, we may be able to use it again for other runs.



  4. Please can you give me some feedback from last nights Kenyan Hill session. Both positive and negative would be appreciated.


  5. Coach leaving time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
