"This will be an approx 8.5km run (just over 5miles), starting from the Leisure Centre, marked out by flour.
Fartlek, which means "speed play" in Swedish, is a training method that blends continuous training with interval training. The variable intensity and continuous nature of the exercise places stress on both the aerobic and anaerobic systems.
On the route there will be start and end points for you to run at a high intensity (3-5km race pace), and a recovery pace. You will be running in your group, and using the recovery period to re-group.
The high intensity sections will vary between 200m and 600m.
The recovery sections will be between 100m and 300m (with one exception @ around 600m)." MC will be Niki Morgan.
Then on Thursday it's the Beachley run with the route taking us round the Wyebank estate to make it a good longish run. MC Bram Fischer will send us on our way.
A busy weekend with the first Gwent League on Saturday. Senior members should meet at 1pm. Juniors will be making arrangements at the Monday session.
And finally some brave (and affluent) souls will be tackling the fearsome Mudrunner and earning points in the Club Champs. And we all know what points mean don't we?
