Rob’s weekly blog and training update w/c 11/06/18

BAR DUTY – It’s Harrriers turn to run the bar at TAC on Saturday 30th June; please can we have a couple more people to help out this night. Please see Duncan, Nigel or Steph for more details

SUNDAY 10TH JUNE
RACE NOW FULL – Everyone Active 10k – New Marske Harriers Road Race Series – race starts at 10:15am

MONDAY 11TH JUNE
7pm Athletic Club. Sonja and Jody are working together on tonight’s session so you will have to wait and see.

TUESDAY 12TH JUNE
Social run from Thirsk and Sowerby leisure centre at 7pm (meet in foyer). Mostly off road depending on the weather. Suitable for all abilities; there will be several stops to run back/regroup, no-one runs by themselves or gets left behind. New and returning Tuesday night runners always welcome.
Route to be decided on the night, around 5 miles. Please wear high vis if you have it. Trail shoes not essential but can be worn if you have them.

WEDNESDAY 13TH JUNE
7pm Athletic Club. 5 x 4 mins / 1 to 2 min rec. Depending on night!! Trying to keep our legs moving but at a more relaxed and even pace. The next couple of races or so are all hills so we need to even out a little. We also have quite a few new members who are trying to do interval training for the first time and I think longer recoveries will help us all. Save the intense stuff for the races which are coming up thick and fast.

I have had quite a few people ask me lately about how to acquire a new club vest. Please “Ken the vest”, could you please make sure we have some vests at the next couple of training sessions this coming week!!! Let’s see if the system works! These will cost you £15. Lots of sizes, lots of shapes but only one colour. Those who asked me about a race at the last training session on Wednesday night then the answer is yes, you are in!

SUNDAY 17TH JUNE
Lanzarote Wine Run 2018; set in La Geria and stop off at a number of bodegas with wine tasting an tapas en route.

Message from the chairman:
Special thanks to Bryan Miller, for organising Ossy Oiks on Wednesday night. A great fell run with 101 runners; thanks Bryan!
Cheers
Duncan

Message from the head-coach:
It is said that if you need something doing then ask someone who is always busy to do it, then the job gets done. Just at the minute I’d appreciate it if you didn’t ask me because we are just a little bit busy and I wouldn’t know how to fit it in. However, I always have time to hear a friendly voice and to talk about running or anything else come to think of it!!
Only a phone call away, Best wishes, Rob
