Good group out last week in spite of the awful weather. Hopefully it won’t be as bad this week! Just to emphasize again that these sessions are suitable of all levels, the tempo part of the run is run on a 1km loop so no one gets dropped during the session. There will be a short briefing for newcomers before the session starts in the business park.
Usual meeting arrangements at 6:30pm at the small carpark on the city side of the Straight Road about 100m closer in than the Kingsley Hotel. Apparently the carpark there now charges but there is some parking not too far away to the side of the County Building.
Alternatively meet in the Business and Technology Park on the Model Farm Road, at the first roundabout inside the entrance. There is some parking in the business park, just drive to the first roundabout, take a right, about 300m down the hill on the left is a visitors carpark. If going directly to the business park meet at the first roundabout at 6:50pm, for both locations come ready to run.
If you are a newcomer to the club or a first-timer to these sessions make yourself known at the pre-session briefing in the business park. For newcomers or first-timers it is recommended that you start by going directly to the business park at least for your first couple of sessions.
