Hot hot hot and a lot going on!

Fantastic efforts all round from anyone racing, getting out for a run, or even doing anything energetic in the heat this weekend! Kudos to everyone who ran at Ingleborough and/or Fountains 10km. I can’t resist giving extra kudos to Sarah Fabron and Chris Morris who chose (nothing to do with me, honest) a category A hot hot hot fell race for their first one! I don’t know if anyone else was running a first race at Fountains, but more kudos over your way if you were!

So, this week then. On Tuesday we have the penultimate intervals session of the 10km plan with Coach Darren from EA. He’s sure to have something suitably challenging for us to do on another hot day. Bring water, hats etc etc.

Also on Tuesday is Vale of York 10miles and on Wednesday it’s a REAL LIFE evening league race hosted by Wetherby! Website for info is here:

On Thursday, if you’re not too tired from all the racing, we are running from the club as usual, and it could be a nice evening for a run through valley gardens? Just a suggestion but the route is here:

Here are the usual suggested pacing groups:

8 – 8:30 min miles
8:30 – 9 min miles
9 – 9:30 min miles
9:30 – 10 min miles
10 – 10:30 min miles
10:30 – 11:30 min miles

Next Sunday is James Herriot race. Wow, three races to choose from in one week. Go steady if you are doing more than one. James Herrot is stunning if you’ve not done it before and you can have it as a road champs counter or a fell champs counter! Strange but true…..and there might be a juicy thunderstorm according to my weather app! Don’t let that put you off 🙂

Then last but not least, Sylvia has asked me to pass on the following message from the Membership Secretary of Longlands Common:

We would be absolutely thrilled if you and fellow Nidd Valley Runners would like to come to our open day/AGM on Saturday, 24 July.

Please follow this link to RSVP and ignore the part that says one member of the group must be a shareholder/member!

More news on how to access the site on the day and other visitor information will follow shortly.”

So please feel free to pop along if you’d like to.

Bye for now. I hope I’ve not forgotten anything……
