The week ahead 30th June

The coach this month is Ivan and Training on Tuesday 1st is: "300s on the track with 100 recoveries. 12 to 16 reps". It'll all be explained when you get there. Meet on the track 7pm.

On Thursday it's our own Tintern Trot. If you're not helping out, then come along and take part. Great venue, great race and of course...  fantastically organised under the directorship of Dave Andrews.

On Saturday it's the grand club outing to the most southern fell race - 'Charmouth Challenge' (aka Golden Cap). Run, beer and BBQ - what could be better? See the BB for more details or speak to Jane at club.

The Week Ahead 23 June 2014

Coach Matthews introduces a new session on Tuesday - Beat the Clock (not to be confused with Round the Clock). The secret of this one is to run when you hear the whistle, and then stop when you hear the next whistle. No brainwork required when should suit some members you could mention.

Thursday's run? You guessed it - suggestions please in Comments Box!

Back to the Coaches telling you where to go next month, so take advantage of this last vestige of democracy!

Cotswold Way Relay on Saturday. Bona Fortuna to all taking part, especially those who've recced their leg and received the green flash of approval...

The Week Ahead 2 June 2014

Coach of the Month - and Winner of Stage 12 of Sunday's Rack Raid - Rich Matthews starts his reign on Tuesday with a track session of 6-8 x 600 metres, with a 200m jog recovery.

Meet as usual on the field ready for a 7pm start.

Tuesday evening is also celebration night when we formally open our new STORAGE BOX just on the edge of the field. I hear there will be a bottle of bubbly to mark the occasion.

And you'll have seen in Wots On that we're inviting members to nominate their favourite run on this month's Thursday runs. Please post your ideas in the Comments Box - please!!!
