Rob’s weekly blog and training update w/c 30/04/18

Fountains 10k – Sunday 29 Apr 2018 – 11am start
Mixed terrain run in Nidderdale
Run along quiet country roads, off-road trails and scenic moorland in Nidderdale Area of Natural Beauty

7pm Athletic Club. Monthly time-trial; 2 miles. Due to there being a championship on the last Wednesday of the month I thought it might be a good idea to change the monthly run to the Monday. If we use the track at the back of the squash courts then I suppose we can call it a trail run. It’s best we use it before all the paths become overgrown and bad to negotiate.
If I had known 56 people were going to turn out for a training session last Monday, then I might have worried a little, but we had plenty of room and it workout fine. One or two didn’t quite clear the stream or the river as smoothly as they would have wished but even I was a little shocked at the presence of a mine field!! 56 started the session, 56 finished it which was absolutely brilliant, and I thought as a group it was the best session I think I have ever taken. I hope you all enjoyed it.
Challenge!! I have been thinking about taking last Monday nights session and placing it in the White Horse car park where we could use real trees, hills etc and maybe even a cargo net to crawl under. It wouldn’t take a lot of organising but if I did would you all come? That is the challenge.

Social run from Thirsk and Sowerby leisure centre at 7pm (meet in foyer). Mostly off road depending on the weather. 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. Trail shoes not essential but can be worn if you have them.

7pm Athletic Club. 6 x 4mins/ 1 min recovery

Kirkbymoorside 10k, 2pm
Kirkbymoorside CP School, West Fields, Kirkbymoorside, YO62 6AG

Message from the chairman:
I try my best to pull as much information as possible on these weekly newsletters, doing research for future runs etc… Whilst looking up bits and bobs for this week I found the following.
“Naked 1 Mile Run – the event will be held in Ninesprings park in Yeovil – Friday 04 May 2018 – 18:30” Anyone going to this?

Message from the head-coach:
My post-race recovery (and Christine’s) today was 4hrs in the morning weeding a border and 6 hrs this afternoon laying heavy rolls of turf! Today was a very, very long day and I won’t be going to the gym tonight or any other day for quite some time. I don’t know which part of me aches the most.
See you soon, Rob
