Hope this finds you fit and healthy.
Well, after only 5 weeks as the chair I need a break so I’m off to India for 2 weeks visiting Temples, Mausoleums and the odd train ride in the foothills of some well known mountains.
The only running I’m likely to do will be sprint reps to the loo, hopefully not too many times.
Kevin Dalton will be writing the weekly emails in my absence with the first of his monthly newsletters attached to the email week commencing 1/4/19.

Run leaders and leading runs .
I’m uncomfortable saying this but we have had the same people leading runs each week which is a big ask and I for one are grateful.
In case you weren’t aware you don’t have to be a leader in running fitness (LiRF) to lead a group. You need to know the route, roughly what pace you’re going to run and the ability to look out for your fellow runners.
I’m making a specific request this week for people to step up and lead a group.
Group 1. – 5K around 23 mins. Approx 7.30 minute mile
Group 2. – 5K around 25mins. Approx 8.10 minute mile
Group 3. – 5K around 27 mins. Approx 8.50 minute mile
Group 4 – 5K around 30 mins. Approx 0940 minute mile
Group 5 – 5K around 33 mins. Approx 10.40 minute mile.
Health and Safety Briefing.
Warm up and cool down correctly.
Hi Viz vests and head torches in dark or poor weather conditions.
Maintaining an awareness of other runners. Buddy up where possible.
In the event an injury does occur please remember to inform the welfare officer using the on line form on our club web site.
Thought for the week. – If you run …. You are a runner. It does not matter how fast or how far.
Best Wishes, Christine.
