This is the penultimate email from me!
Before I get onto this weeks activities I just want to mention that Jeff Walker successfully passed his CiRF qualification this weekend. Which means we’ve now got 5 coaches at Nidd Valley – that’s the most I think we’ve ever had – well done Jeff!
On Tuesday we’re continuing with our Winter Interval training, Jon is caoching this week at St Catherine’s. He’ll be able supported by Chris B and Jeff. The warm up for this one is usually at the bottom of Slingsby Walk, so you can either meet there at 7.10pm, or run up from the club. We’ll be setting off as usual at 7pm.
On Thursday I thought we could run towards the Valley Gardens (it’s been a while), so leaving the club via Claro Road we run through town and down towards the Pump Rooms. From there it’s up to the top of Cornwall Road before turning left onto Harlow Moor Road, and then right onto Otley Road. We take a left onto Beckwith Road, from there we head back to the club via Green Lane, Leadhall Lane and then either Leeds Road or Hookstone Road. If that route seems a bit long then you can choose to turn left onto Otley Road and then back to the club via the Stray.
The initial break point for this run is the entrance to the Valley Gardens.
Here’s a reminder of the paces we run:
Group 1 – if you run 5k in 23 minutes or quicker
Group 2 – if you run 5k in 26 minutes or quicker
Group 3 – if you run 5k in 29 minutes or quicker 29
Group 4 – if you run 5k in 33 minutes
Don’t forget to wear your hi-viz vests and head torches!
Hope to see there at tomorrow night’s session.
