Rob’s weekly blog and training update w/c 20/08/18

Brass Monkey half marathon – BM19 will be going live @7am on Saturday 20th October 2018 (Race date is Sunday 13th January 2019)

MONDAY 20TH AUGUST
7pm Athletic Club. Pop down and Sonja be taking the session with “Mr and Mrs Brown”…. 😊 If you want to know more then come down on Monday.

TUESDAY 21ST AUGUST
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 22TH AUGUST
7pm. Sessay Swift 6k ( not mile) No club training today. Club championship race. This is a flat/ fast course. Once you arrive back in Sessay there is 1k to go. You will be left thinking it is probably the longest village in Yorkshire so be careful when you put in a burst of speed to get to finish because 1k is a long way when you are tired. Build up speed gradually. Good Luck.

Marian may still need a little help so if you are free a job will be found so please step forward!! If you have not yet entered then do so ASAP, it is filling up fast. Once you have finished then we need to jog back along the village and encourage those who are on there first run, they will need our help. Lets hear some noise.!

Message from the chairman:
Great to be back home, fully refreshed. Ken and I enjoyed taking our first session on Wednesday night and thanks very much to those with comments and support, very much appreciated
