Back to winter run sessions and the much loved whistle(?) For anyone who hasn’t done these sessions before they on a “time at tempo” basis with about 50% of the tempo time for recovery. So a choice for meeting up; at 6:30pm by the carpark on the city side of the Kingsley Hotel opposite where the Crow’s Nest pub used to be. Run from there along the walkway that comes out at the Tennis Village and from there in the Model Farm road to the Business and Technology Park. Alternatively meet at 6:50pm at the first roundabout inside the technology park. There is a visitors carpark in the technology park, take a right at the roundabout and the carpark is about 250m on the left hand side of the road. Don’t park in front of any of the business as it may result in clamping. We run a 1km loop inside the park so no one gets dropped, and there is always the entertaining personal competition amongst us slower runners to see how long we can go without getting lapped. It will be dark before we finish so please wear some High Viz clothing or a small light.
