Wednesday Run February 21st

The weather looks like it will be quite cold but dry, so come prepared. Put a couple of layers on so that something can be peeled off for the tempo part of the session. We will start at 6 minute reps and work down to 2 minutes. Very big groups turning out the last few […]

Valentine’s Wednesday Run February 14th

Hope everyone gets their roses delivered early either as a giver or receiver and makes the usual run time of 6:30pm. The run this week couldn’t be more straight forward 5 x 5 minutes with 2 minutes recovery jog. For anyone planning a duathlon season they could start upping the intensity a little bit. Usual […]

Wednesday Run 24th January

Wednesday Run January 10th

From reports Catherine and Brid gave the group a not so easy post Christmas reintroduction. Back to the Business Park this week for the tempo session. For anyone looking at doing a Spring duathlon season they might consider upping the intensity slightly for about half of the tempo runs pushing towards hard. Session is straightforward […]

Weather promises to be dry but quite cold, so wrap well for the warm-up but in layers so that something can be shed for the actual session. The same overall time at tempo again this week with a little bit of variation in the format, 3 x 4 and 4 x 2. For anyone running […]

Wednesday Run November 22nd

Heavy rain forecast for tomorrow which hopefully will have cleared by the evening. After the rain the temperature is set to drop so wrap up well at least for the warm-up and cool down. Pushing up the time at tempo just a little bit to 20 minutes, still maintaining the 50% recovery jog. Usual arrangements […]
