Apologies for missing the session on Thursday, I completely forgot that I was at a party! Fingers crossed I will be at all sessions over the next two weeks! Amazing!!
Plan for the week
Mon (7:30) - Something that does not have to be too strenuous. The schedule says 'grassy pyramid' but I am concerned that the common where we normally do this will be too muddy after the wet conditions. I will formulate a plan and we will do something different......
Tues (7:30) - Morpeth 10K
Wed (6:30) - Northern Bypass. Nice easy steady recovery run for people who raced the 10K. A couple of 1.8m tempos for those who did not.
