Rob’s Training Update w/c 09/09/13

Monday 9th Sept. 7pm. (prompt)  Thirsk School. If dry, on the back field. This is now best approached via the doors next to the Sports Hall. If wet, we have the Gym.
This will be the last training session Sune will be taking for a while and she has promised us a real hard session!! She doesn’t frighten us does she?

Wednesday 11th Sept. 7pm.(prompt). Thirsk School. As above. However, if its wet we will be in the Sports Hall. The outside session will be 4 x 4 mins/ 2 recovery.  We will also have a little surprise!!
Please remember changing, showers and toilets are available to all members. Girls opposite the Gym. Boys next to the Sports Hall.

 
Last week a few of us took part in the World Masters Mountain Running Championships. (my 8th). For those who like to plan ahead, next year they will be held in Austria in the Mountains not far from Innsbruck. The men aged 35 to 50 will run 11.6k and climb 4000′, the rest of the men and all the women will run 8.5k and climb 3000′. The race will start at about 3000′ so I’m sure not only will it be quite a challenge but it will be absolutely beautiful. For those who really like to wish their life away the event is hoped to be held in Wales in 2015.You just have to remember the train is for coming down the mountain and not to take you up.
 
Now is the time to come out of hiding, the xcountry season is fast approaching and the hard winter training begins,
See you all soon,
Rob
