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.
