Rob’s Weekly Blog and Training Update w/c 2/11/15

Saturday 31st October. 9am Halloween Parkrun Fountains Abbey

TSH are sponsoring the Parkrun at Fountains this Saturday. All the volunteer spaces have been filled but if you would like to run as a pacer then you can still put your name forward on the day but please arrive early. Or you could just turn up and run, you are sure to get plenty of support along the way. There is a prize for the best fancy dress and also other treats and surprises on the course. It would also be a little silly if you didn’t stay behind for a spot of breakfast and a little chat so I look forward to seeing a few of you in the cafe afterwards. I don’t do bribes but I bet you can’t guess who is doing the time keeping!!!

Also, a note from Martin Cummins who has been the liason with Fountains Abbey parkrun – Fountains Abbey Halloween Parkrun. Volunteers need to be down by the Abbey at 8.00 to 8.15am for the briefing. Fancy dress would be great. “Thanks Harriers you are the best”

Sunday 1st November. Guyfawkes 10 Club championship race

I have never run this race before but I believe it is quite a tough one. A road race with a 1000′ of climbing must be tough ( similar to Clay Bank West) and in a funny sort of a way I am looking forward to the challenge. Apparently I have to beat Cameron but I will be quite happy with a strong run.

Monday 2nd November – 7pm – Thirsk School gym

Sonja has been on a new course and I don’t know what to expect. She keeps getting quite excited about a golf ball so anything could happen.

Wednesday 3rd November – 7pm – Thirsk School Sports hall

More core work followed monthly time trial, station road. You have to have done 2 to win the xmas handicap and we didn’t do one last month!!

A note from Rob….

I hope you all enjoyed Wednesday night, it’s my sort of stuff and I really enjoyed it. (I would not have chosen that particular music!!) The facilities to die for and a nice guy to put us through our paces. Thanks to Steve and Nikki for putting it all together and to Jody for giving us a magical mystery tour. Only thing to spoil it all was the football results but then we can’t win then all!!.
