Group 0I love club nights, the friends and chat and banter, just love it! So, the heroes group. Brilliant bunch of peoples, all working hard to get build up fitness, come back from injuries, testing to see if injuries are getting better. You can only tell by actually going out running, and when you're in a club with people helping you along that is all you need!
There were nine members this evening. I was a little late turning up as work didn't finish on time this evening, yet when I got there it was good to see that the ones that were there earlier than me were busy doing the warm up drills! Brilliant!
A fairly easy route this evening, flat mostly with the incline at the beginning of the run. I was conscious this evening of making sure I had everyone in my sights, no one was behind me. Mind you trying to keep an eye on the front runners was going to be a challenge now, but I had no need to worry as Nicola took on the role of front Leader. She encouraged those that wanted to do loop backs to run back and even to loop around the Daylight Inn when we had done 2 miles.
As this is a 'Getting in/back to Group 1' session, I am trying to keep all the distances at about 2.5 miles, and to get around these routes at group 1 pace. I knew the route I had planned for tonight would only be about 2 miles, so I had to tack on another half mile somewhere. So I decided that we would run down Woodside to Manor Way and then run up there. That should do it! I was thinking on my feet, which is never a good idea, I'm not very good at multi-tasking!
But I surprised myself, it worked out fine, we had about 10 minutes left when we got into the rec to do some warm downs! Perfect timing, even if I do say so myself. And Nicola was very good as Group 0 Front Runner, much appreciated!
Geeky stats, and you will probably notice that the beginning of this run on the map says we started in Poverest! Well, I think my Garmin had a hissy fit, or my Garmin and the Satellites had an argument and refused to talk to each other, but we did actually start our run from the Rec!
