Sessions for week commencing 1st April.

Happy Easter!

Forms for next week are up. Please ensure that your name is down if you’re coming along to any of the sessions. If you haven’t paid your subs, better get on that – because you will not be able to book in the next couple of days if they’re overdue.

Tuesday will be mixed big reps. Suggested workouts are:
G1: 2K * 4 + 1K (marathoners)
G2 marathoners: 2K * 4
G2 / 3 / 4: 2K * 3 (+1K for those feeling adventurous and with adequate mileage behind them / marathoners)
G5 / low mileage folk: 2K * 2 + (1 or 2 * 1K)
90 seconds recoveries after the 2K reps, 60 seconds after 1K reps.
Juniors (Kian Leo):
1K (@ ~ 5K pace)
8 * 400, hard
5 * 200, harder
1K (@ ~ 5K pace)
Rests as long as required, recommend at least 90 seconds after the harder reps (rest longer, go faster).

Don’t forget, if you have a sports watch then it will most likely have a lap button (and the ability to program these workouts in a lot of cases).

The lap button is the simplest way of keeping track of what you’re doing and where you’re at with rests. Pressing it at the end of each of the reps (e.g. once you have completed two laps) will segment off what you’re doing.

All Garmins from the Forerunner 45 upwards offer this functionality. Most of these watches allow you to customise data screens according to what you’re doing – on the Garmins, I think you do this from the watch itself (Google your watch model and ‘data screen’). From Coros it can be done from your phone.

Take some time to learn what your watch can do if you have one – they’re unbelievable pieces of kit.

Thursday’s route will be R4. It’s too muddy still to do M4R after all.

See you in the week!

Sessions for week commencing 25th March.

Morning all, forms for this week are now up! Please make sure you are putting your name down for these sessions if you intend to come to any of them.

On Tuesday, David will take a social run.

The work on the track will vary according to group / mileage / whether or not you’re marathon training, but suggested workouts are:
G1:
2 * (2K, 1K, 400m *
4)
G2:
2K, 1K, 400m * 4
2K, 400m * 4
G3 / G4:
2K, 1K, 400m * 4
1K, 400m * 4
G5:
2K, 1K, 400m * 4
1K
90 second rests after 2K and 1K, 60 seconds rest after 400m. Easier to explain on the track when we’re there.

Thursday’s route is one of the newer ones. It’s about 7.3 miles and there is a shortcut more or less half way through it.

Well done to everyone who raced last night and HUGE thanks to everyone who helped in the lead up and came down to support. It’s honestly a wonderful thing to see and a great source of reassurance to have the club to pull together to make a success of these events as it did last night and events before it. Couldn’t happen without your support.

See you in the week!

2024 Away Runs

Social Away Runs 2024

Throughout spring & summer, every month on a Thursday night, we meet and run from a different area of Doncaster. These are very social runs organised by your fellow harriers with the help of a few leaders. They generally start and finish in a pub with the option to order food for after, usually a chip butty or some other delicious treat.

This years away runs so far, are:

April 11th – Woodlands

May 23rd – Conisborough

June 27th – Thorne

July 25th – Cadeby

August 15th – Hatfield / Dunscroft

All the dates are on the clubs calendar on our website. We have a couple more in the pipeline too.

Azza is hosting our first one and will post soon with all the details.

Thank you in advance to all those that have offered to host and to our leaders that I’m sure will be helping out.

Looking forward to these already!!

Club Kit Shop Open!

The club shop is open if you are after a T-shirt or Hoodie.

T-shirts – the sizing are smaller than expected, so generally go one size bigger than you think.

Hoodies – these have a zip, we have a few in stock at the Hub, check with us tonight or next Tuesday to see if we have your size in stock or try for sizing.

Race Vests – we hold a stock of club vests at the hub (£25)

The shop will be open until 0800 on 20th March, after that date all orders will be sent into production. There is an approximate lead time of 4-6 weeks for delivery.

Here is the link to the shop.
