AS YOU ARE AWARE 2018 MEMBERSHIP FORM Deadline has now passed, I appreciate 99% of you have handed your forms in and paid up. However, those outstanding forms please bring them to the next training session as you CAN’T train without them.

7pm Thirsk school. Inside with Sonja; I great turnout last week, let’s have the same again please.

We enjoyed our first outdoor session last week. This week will be focusing on running again and will take place on the school field. We will meet in the school gym first. 10 mins warm up outside then 40 mins of (5 mins + 2 mins recovery) x 6. Same as last week

TUESDAY 6TH FEBRUARY
Social run from Thirsk and Sowerby leisure centre at 7pm (meet in foyer) on well-lit paths and pavements. 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.

WEDNESDAY 7TH FEBRUARY
7pm Athletic Club. Charlotte will be taking the session at TAC as Rob is chasing tigers.
Intervals. If it’s a good night, then 6 x 4 mins i.e. 3x (2 x 4mins / 1min rec) 2 mins between sets. Slightly faster than 10k pace. If it’s a bad night, it’ll be 4 x 4mins. Go out and back each time this way everyone will finish session together. This is a big, big session so let’s give lots of encouragement and praise to each other.

Message from the chairman:
Loved having a Monday outdoor session last week which will now continue into the summer, it’s great to try and cater for everybody’s needs.
Cheers
Duncan
