The Week Ahead 7 November 2016

Tuesday's session is the Beech Grove Paarlauf.

Beech Grove is opposite the tennis courts of the Athletic Club in Mathern Road in the middle of Bulwark - where we did Ivan's timed hill session a few weeks ago under the guardianship of the local constabulary.

You need a partner of about your own speed, and be warmed up and ready to go at 7.15. You can maybe sort out your partner in the LC bar before jogging down to Beech Grove. (Short Cut! The alley just before Larkfield garage takes you to the top of Beech Grove.)

Spoilt for choice on Thursday!

The 15 pioneers of the Core Fitness group are committed to Week 2 of Kevin's course.

The scheduled tempo run is down to Beachley and back via the Wyebank estate.

And we're also offering a track session at the Beachley camp. We're still sorting out the optimum lighting arrangements, so bring along your head torch just in case. Meet at Beachley at 6.55 ready to warm up.

And finally, the second Gwent League cross-country is at the Pen y Lan Leisure Centre at Brecon (dress warmly) on Saturday. Junior races start at 12; Senior Women at 12.50; Senior Men at 2.20.

This one incorporates the East Wales XC Championships for which all ages are invited to enter. Find the EW tent, fill in the form and pay your £1 and you're up for a much sought-after E Wales medal.

There are also team medals for all age groups, so we've all got a chance of bringing home a gong.

The Champs are also the main selection event for the East Wales team in the Inter Regional Champs at Builth Wells on 10 December. The first six in each age group gain automatic selection for the IR team, but their are 9 other places to be chosen on merit. If you miss the top six, but  ran well at Bridgend or are putting in good performances in other races, you still stand a good chance of running at Builth.
