I hope you all enjoyed the racing and the socialising of the Burton Leonard Mob Match. Huge congratulations to team NIDD, you gave it your all and retained the trophy for another year with a 192 point margin. There were some excellent individual performances too with Fiona Deacon taking 1st place FV55 and Dave Seaman 1st place MV70. There may be others but these are the ones I’m aware of.
As most of you know the summer training plan is well underway and should prove beneficial for anyone that’s entered the Redcar half marathon at the end of September. If you haven’t already entered then please do so. Its a flat, fast course but more importantly its a chance to enjoy a coach trip to the seaside with your fellow Nidders.
The interval session on grass last week received lots of positive comments, this type of training is really beneficial and will seriously increase your chance of a PB when racing.As they say “Train hard, race easy” Lets see!
After racing at Burton Leonard today we’re back at it this week with the final evening league race at Wetherby so read on for further information.
The Week Ahead.
Tuesday 16/7/19. No intervals this week due to the mid week evening league race.I’m not suggesting a route but leaving the choice to those members at the club. A decision can be made on the evening as I suspect lots of people will be saving themselves for the evening league race.
