Tuesday night at the Jim Peters stadium Mayesbrook Park and Nike brought a new trainer for BRR to test. The Nike React Infinity Run is a new trainer that is supposed to help cut down on injuries. An extra-large turn-out of runners were in attendance to give it a go on the night. The session involved a couple of warm up laps and drills then a timed mile. Overall feedback for the new shoe was good, indeed there were a few PB’s but, as is to be expected, it didn’t suit everyone.

Thursday’s midweek long run from the Jo Richardson school was the Upney-Parsloes route of about 6 miles led as usual by Nigel Swaby. As with all the routes, there were short cuts available for those who want to run less. Details of the runs can be found on TeamUp.
Saturday morning was parkrun day and, as always, there were plenty of BRR members out.

Saturday afternoon was Chingford league race No 6 at Victoria Park, on a 5 mile course, all on tarmac. A race without hills or mud was a bit of relief for the team after the recent cross countries. Representing BRR on the day were Natalie Traylen 43:58, Rabea Begum 48:59, Paul Ward 34:27, James Hall 37:09, Nehal Patel 41:27 Jason Li 44:11, Les Jay 47:48 and last but definitely not least for BRR was Joseph Grange 11:53 winning the under 13 boys race once again. Unfortunately, due to a parking mix-up, Paul Grange missed the race. The last race of the season is the team relays at Wanstead .

A good attendance at Hainault Country Park on Sunday for the planned hill repeat session in readiness for next week’s cross country. After a short warm up the usual 10x repeats on the hill followed by a cool down and finally the Sunday staple of tea and club chips, well earned.
