Wednesday night our running club joined another local club for their club night. It was quite interesting to see the way they do things, you would think it would similar to ours, but no actually very different.
- They did warm ups in the local car park, proper warm ups, swinging arms, raising legs, touch the floor etc, we usually just set off!
- Various groups and distances on offer, beginners, 2 miles, 4 miles, 6 miles, 6 miles fast. It may be that they don’t do this usually doing it this was only when they have guests, but I thought this was a good idea, we tend to all set off and then splinter in to groups according to speed.
- A led stretch and cool down, granted some stretch at the end normally but nothing as formal as this
The run itself was nice along the seafront, up the hill, loop back, along the sea front, upping the pace every other lamppost, up the hill the other end and then loop back. At one point I could hear claws on the road surface coming up behind me and I though it odd that someone had brought a dog along, only to realise at the last-minute that it was a badger not a canine! Scared the life out of me.
An enjoyable evening. Afterwards I jumped in the car and off I went to a Southampton Hotel, the story of the hotel, will have to wait till tomorrow!
Now to todays Janathon activity, I am going to take a leaf out of Rachel’s book and have contracted out my running for today, to Madam.
Her training schedule says….
rather her than me! (thanks for the cracking idea Fairweather)
I might let her have the chocolate
