Running Club News 16/4/18

Monday 16th April

This evening we had new routes to follow. There was a choice of 6miles –, 4.7miles – or 3.1miles – Those observant amongst you will notice from the table below that only 3 out of the 9 runners this evening managed to follow the correct distances. Firstly, Well done to Mike, he followed the longer 6mile route perfectly and in a great time too, 7m 23s per mile, his fastest run this year so far!! Also supposedly doing this route were Karen and her two boys Aaron and Owen, Karen managed to take a detour around Priory Park, while he boys managed to only complete half of Dibles. Still, even with the detours, they finished with a good distance and a fantastic time. Aaron just pipping his older brother to have bragging rights in the house this week, but both achieving their personal bests with the club. Both boys are nearing the 7min per mile barrier now. Who will be the first to complete a run in sub – 7mins per mile??

Lisa and Charles managed to follow orders well, they took the shorter route and followed it perfectly. Charles carrying a slight injury and Lisa is running the Southampton 10k this weekend so taking it steady. 10mins per mile is good preparation, well done!

It was great to see Sue back at running club this evening, having completed the Paris Marathon recently, she has come back a bit of a hero really. What an amazing achievement, well done Sue. She ran with her daughter, Jo, this evening and the pair finished in under 10mins per mile, awesome.

You may have also noted that I also went wrong on the route and managed to loose half a mile, ooppss!! Try again next week with the same routes done properly!


One last thing, I still haven’t had any firm orders for the running club t-shirts yet, please let me know if you would like me to order you one. I will need the money in advance please.

To order please let me know your size and how many you would like.

I will need payment in advance, preferably via BACS. I will also have to wait for sufficient numbers before a print run can be made. So please be aware there may be a short delay in receiving them.

The price of the T-shirts will be £30 each.

You can check out the look, colour and style here – I enjoy run club
