On Tuesday we revel in the pleasures of the Danes Loop. The lap starts and finishes along Kingsmark Lene by Park View. So we set off down the Lane, turn left down Huntfield and back up Kingsmark Avenue. But what we don't do is stop at the top of the Avenue. Oh no! We carry on pushing along the lane right back to the finish opposite Park View. You'll find that the coach will be lurking at the top of the Avenue with our new cattle prod to encourage you to keep going.
On Thursday it's down to the Severn Bridge for the monthly 5k Time Trial. Can you beat your last time?
We're looking for two helpers please. Either on the turn-round which gives you the opportunity of doing the 5k run, albeit in 2 two-and-a-half k parts, or taking names/times at the finish. Please write your name in the Comments box below, or contact Dick direct.
On Saturday the Elan Valley 10 mile race up in the top of the region is the East Wales Road Champs for 2016. Medals for all age groups. A lovely scenic, quiet-laned course starting by the mighty dam.
And finally, on Sunday the second Leisure Centre League cross-country race in the hills behind Pontypool. Based near Pentwyn there is very little parking space, so we've been advised to share cars. The race starts at 11, so watch for the Captains' notice about meeting times at the LC.
