Rob’s weekly blog and training update w/c 29/01/18

SUNDAY 28TH JANUARY
Relax! I can’t find a race

MONDAY 29TH JANUARY
REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR 2018 MEMBERSHIP FORM IF NOT HANDED IN YET. If the tax office can impose a £100 penalty, then maybe we should…. lol. Deadline is the 31st January.

7pm Thirsk school. Inside with Sonja; I great turnout last week, let’s have the same again please.
Large group last week; so, I’m guessing that this will be the first week that I, Duncan, will take a group outside. The outdoor session will be focusing on running and will take place on the school field. We will meet in the school gym first. 10 mins warm up then 30 mins of 40 seconds brisk with 40 seconds easy which will mirror the inside group and help keep everyone at the similar level. Trying to keep the pulse at the same level as those inside.

TUESDAY 30TH JANUARY
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 31ST JANUARY
7pm Athletic Club. Sonja and Liv will be taking the session at TAC as Rob is on his jollies.
10-minute warm ups with 30 minutes 10k pace with rolling recoveries. That is two thirds of the track at slightly faster than 10k pace with the other third of the track jog recovery at a pace that is comfortable. We’ll alternate the direction we travel every 10 minutes to stop boredom creeping in!! Cool down and stretches. We need to start on time to nicely fit in around the hour.
