Tuesday’s track session was led by Paul Wyatt in the absence of Alison and Rob who were at a London Marathon preparation meeting.
After a few warm-up laps and drills, the monthly timed mile was next with a few PBs still being recorded this was followed by 6 x 400m with 200m recovery. An nice tough session to keep everyone warm.

Thursday’s midweek session was led by Rob and was made of 10 sets of hill repeats after a warm up and finished with a cool down.
Wet and wild was the best way to describe Saturday’s parkrun day.
Numbers were well below recent weeks but hardly surprising considering the conditions.
