A chance to get in some valuable training this Tuesday and Thursday – tho’ there is the distraction of an E Wales Championship race in between!
July’s Coach of the Month, Ivan Teed (not Chris Rees as I stupidly posted originally), has devised a new session for Piercefield Park on Tuesday. There are four different length loops to choose from – they are roughly: 900 metres, 8oo mtrs, 600 mtrs or 500 mtrs. You have 5 minutes to both run your loop and recover before the whistle blows for the next effort.
The E Wales Champs race on Wednesday evening is the Cwmcarn Drive 7 mile race just the other side of Risca. It’s 7 miles on a traffic-free half uphill/half downhill road circuit within the Cwmcarn Country Park. Entry on the night: meet at the LC at 5.30. Thursday’s run is over the 3 Woods circuit starting with Great Barnetts Wood.
