On Tuesday the Club are putting on the second in the 2018 Rose Inn Series. All the best to helpers and runners.
On Thursday, join Coach James for a speed endurance session at the LC track, ‘up the clock’. The session is 11 repetitions, the first being 200m with 200m jog recovery. The track is marked so that each repetition will then increase by 10m, with a 10m decrease in the recovery distance. To test your pacing, you should aim for a 2 second time increase for each rep. It’s a great session for building mental toughness as the longer reps and shorter recoveries build!
Remember, this is about speed endurance and consistent pacing, so while you can go a little faster than your 5k pace, you shouldn’t be going flat out. It’s a good one to run in small groups of 3-4, so it will help on the night if you familiarise yourself with the pace groups on the training section of the website if you haven’t already. Please bring a watch so you can time the reps.
The continuous run is down to Beachley and back. Or slower runners can join the 45 Minute Guide Run.
All Thursday choices start at 7pm.
On Saturday try the Coity Fell Race at the Whistle Inn just up the hill from Blaenavon. It’s the next one in our Club Fell Series. A ‘B’ Class Short Race which means that under normal conditions the Organiser won’t expect you to wear or carry any special kit. But, in bad weather the Organiser can insist on your wearing/carrying wind-proof body cover (eg cagoule, running bottoms, hat and gloves). So it’s good practice to bring these with you whenever you set off for a fell race just in case.
And finally, on Sunday morning the Club are putting on a new 10k road race based at the Beachley camp. Designed for faster runners, read about it on our website under Our Races. Race Organiser James Blore is still needing marshals and other helpers. He’d be delighted to hear from you.
