Happy Easter Sunday! I hope you’re all enjoying the weekend and the glorious weather.
A special thank you to two Sarah’s this week. Sarah Chalmers for organising the Easter Egg social run last Thursday and Sarah Hughan for organsising the shoe trial.
The week ahead!
This is the last of winter 2018 into Spring 2019 interval sessions. I hope you’ve enjoyed them and of course benefited from the coaching.
These sessions couldn’t take place if it wasn’t for several club members giving their time to coach and lead the sessions so yet another huge thank you to everyone involved.
Watch this space for future coach led sessions on Tuesdays.
Speed Intervals. The Oval.
