Coach Jane says:
We are off to Thornwell this Tuesday to do some speed efforts around the loop of just under a mile. We are practicing at operating at threshold level (being able to say one or two words) for a longer effort. Your first lap will feel slow because you are fresh but as usual your aim is for consistency - your last lap the same time as your first!
Pace groups A-C, 5 loops, D-F, 4 loops. With 90 sec static rec between laps.
Ensure you get a good warm up on the way there. Anyone heading straight there, factor in time for a good warm up. Start time 7.20 ono.
Thursday we do the Boughspring Runs anti-clockwise. Choose short, medium or long.
And finally, it's our turn to host the LCL XC, in Piercefield Park. Allow 10 minutes from the LC. Start is 11.00 for seniors, 10.15 for junior races. Bring along your children for a taste of cross-country running in an ideal setting.
A stalwart team of club members have organised the event for which we should all be duly thankful!
