Rob’s Weekly Blog – w/c 31/04/14

Monday 31st March 7pm Thirsk School gym .    
Sonja, something new!
 
Wednesday 2nd March. 7pm Thirsk school Sports Hall. 
Something new with Peter and yet even more “lung bursting” from Paul. Outside Group.  2 x (6 x 1min/1 rec) 3 min between sets .
 
Thirsk 10.             
950 entrants.  Marian and her hard working team. 55 volunteers who helped on the day. Thank you to you all. It was a very positive day for T&S H.
All that enthusiasm and energy. Didn’t it make you all want to go out and run the race? I hope a few more of you will next year, I will be stood at Busby Stoop to give you all a shout so look out for me.
 
Time Trial.           
Well that was an experience wasn’t it? You wouldn’t want to turn your mother-in -law out on a night like that but there you all were, almost 40 runners and poor Steve and Phillip standing there taking your times. You deserve a medal. My little pinkies felt as though they were going to drop off and are still tingling a bit tonight. I think we are going to need a bumper truck load of Easter eggs this year for the handicap which is on April 9th from the Athletic Club.
 
Hartlepool 5 mile.
Club Championship Race. Remember your vest and leave your watch behind.( it’s a race and not a time trial)!! Your target time should be 2.5 times your time trial result and don’t ease off until you cross the line. ( and I’m talking the finish line and not the start line!!)

Good luck and see you there,
Rob
