Wed Run – Model Farm Bus Park – 6:30pm

Wednesday Run, 18th Oct returning to the Model Farm Rd Business Park, and the Tempo sessions.

Meeting at the earlier time of 6:30pm at the carpark on the City end of the Straight road, as usual.
With the trees down the path might be dangerous with downed trees so we will run up the Model Farm Road to the Business Park. Would strongly advise hi-viz clothes & lights, the street lights in the business park may be still out.

Brendan still can’t run so will meet the rest of us at the roundabout in the Business park at about 6:50 and organise from there.

The session will be as follows:

Usual 6 x 60M strides followed by:

3 x 3 minute with 90s recovery,

3 x 2 minutes with 1 minute recovery,

then easy jog back to the Straight road.
