Training Week Commencing 31 August

Note from Rob re Sessay Swift 6K :
For those yet to run the Sessay Swift please wear something bright and keep to the side of the road. There is a lot of water on the verges and the light isn’t too good. Please, please be careful. send your times to Trish via email a soon as you complete your run. She shouldn’t have to chase you to get your times in. Saturday night is the deadline. 

And here’s Rob’s training for the coming week:

Monday 31st August. 7pm. PROMPT!   
S.G.Track  25 mins of core work.   3 to 4 laps of the track.  200 metes hard / 100 metres easy. Cool down – stretches. 

Wednesday 2nd September. 7pm. S.G.Track.  25 mins of core work.   The August monthly 2 mile time trial ( slightly late!)  Those at training can do this on the track but you must time yourself. The rest of you run where ever you want. Please send your times into Duncan. This is open to members and guests alike. Your summer handicap will be worked out using these times. 

And next challenge: We have a team working together to try and fit in a virtual London Marathon/ Redcar half marathon that incorporates the Gateway track. 4th October is the date for the virtual London that Lorraine and Clare are going to do for the Herriot Hospice/ Lambert. Others may want to run the marathon too. We are planning to run the half marathon on the same weekend. Watch this space. 
 Stay safe and enjoy your weekend, Rob
