Friday Running Club 31/1/14

Perfect running conditions again today, starting out in the cold air but dry sky! Today was the introduction to a new route with the opportunity to improve on times over the coming 2 weeks. It was also an opportunity for some poeple to step up a distance to test themselves a bit more. Jane certainly did that today, she increased her distance from 2.9 miles last week to 4 miles this week. This in itself is a big step, but not only did she run further she also ran faster, achieving her Running Club Personal Best split time today of just 10m 22s, a great run Jane well done!! Aileen was keeping up with Jane really well and she managed to match her Personal Best time today as well, very consistant Aileen, a bit more breakfast and you would have smashed your PB!

The two gents set off together on the longer circuit of 4.8miles today. It consisted of a long up hill on the way out with a downhill sprint on the way back. Greg found the hills tough but still finished with a great split time of 10m 10s just 2 seconds off his split time from Mondays run! Well done Greg! Charles missed Mondays session but made up for it as he stormed the route recording a fantastic 9m 44s. Awesome!

Jo F and Maggie set off together on the 4mile route. They pushed each other well with Maggie just finishing outside her PB and Jo completing 4 miles for the first time with the Friday club! Well done ladies. I think now you know the route you will be much faster next week!

I am really pleased with the amount of runners representing New Life Training at the forthcoming Eastleigh 10k, so far we have –
