Monday night at the track
Monday night at the track was a wonder to behold, with over 80 seniors taking part in various sessions despite the inclement weather.
There were the C25Kers in their final week before graduating at Saturday’s parkrun, the sprint group, Sarah Bland’s 6.30 group doing the challenging 3-6 x 1k reps interval session and fighting the headwinds on the back straight, there was the 2nd of the Technique Takeover Sessions led by Paul Bearman, supported by expert demonstrator Kaili Woodward and observed by Sandy and Carolyne and finally we mustn’t forget a couple of committed racewalkers. I dare not forget the racewalkers.
I’m told by Paul Bearman that there was so much potential in the 2 groups, both this week and last, that if it can be harnessed our Vets team will smash it next year. Bring it on.
Paul added that all were impressed with the way everyone worked through the drills, running both tall and controlled.
He went on to say. “I think the message Sarah and I wanted to get across is that all our members are simply athletes…. not road runners, XC or track and field etc just athletes under one umbrella SUAAC.
Also we are keen to use our resources effectively and try to help our athletes be the best they can be at what ever level they aspire to.”
