Sessions for week commencing 27th November

Morning everyone, forms for this week are up!

In a break from Tuesday tradition, no intervals tomorrow night. We’ll be taking a breath after the year’s efforts and will be doing a big social instead.

You will need a head torch / regular torch for this if you plan to do the whole run. If you don’t have either, please let us know and we will try and arrange one for you.

We’ll be going into the woods (yes, the woods) for a mile or two towards the end. Jim hadn’t realised we’d get a dump of rain when he thought about this, but he and Julie have been for a recce this morning and the section we’re using should be okay. You’ll probably get away with an old pair of road shoes.

There are two shortcuts – one will take the run to about 3 miles, the other around 4.5. Both these options come back down Leger Way, so there’s the incentive to do the whole thing. 😅

This will be a good chance to catch up and natter with people you don’t usually run with and reflect one way or another on Donny 10K if you had done that.

A bunch of us will likely end up in Icebreaker tomorrow afterwards too, depending on the weather.

Thursday’s route will be R6.

We’ll resume interval work next week.

Jim will also put together a framework for spring marathon training and the smaller races that we’ll build into that and work towards as a club (including club champs races), which he’ll post in a couple of weeks and will start once Christmas is done.

Hopefully see a lot of you there tomorrow.
