Rob’s weekly blog and training update w/c 01/04/19

Spring Coast 5k on Wednesday 10th April is now full.  However, I have a spare number if anyone wants one.

Cheers Duncan – MINIBUS IS FULL

 

MONDAY 1ST APRIL

LIGHT NIGHTS SO ALL OUTSIDE NOW

Station road time trial. Starting at Lidl end 7.20pm. Athletic Club will open around 6.50pm.

You should be looking for a strong, even paced run after all the good training we have done lately. There are only a few simple rules:

  1. Run on the left when facing an oncoming runner.
  2. If you must run on the road (and some do) don’t do it unless you are facing oncoming traffic.
  3. High – vis vest. Wear one. It’s simple, if you don’t have one then you should only run on a treadmill or run just during the day.

Let’s have a fast and safe time trial.

TURN AROUND POINT IS THE SIGN IN TRAIN STATION CAR PARK NEAR THE STEPS

 

Make this count as Easter Handicap is set for Wednesday 24th April on the new trail at Sowerby Gateway

TUESDAY 2ND APRIL

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 3RD APRIL

7pm. Athletic Club.  

Rob is back from Africa so he’ll have something planned; let’s split into similar ability group, each group having either a coach or leader in running.

 

THURSDAY 4TH APRIL

7pm sharp, We are going to church.  Hawnby Church, which is located at the bottom of the village. Dress for the weather.
