Storm Brendan was blowing his way across the land this week and almost put a stop to our Tuesday club run. Some hardy soles set out in the wind and came back in a monsoon. Wonderful. LFR Brendan (who may or may not be related to Storm Brendan) took the Fartlek Three out for some intervals.
Improvers this week was taken by The Outdoor Fitness Coach. He put our runners through some strength work in the mud and rain. Brave souls! An amazing workout, if other members fancy checking out The Outdoor Fitness Coach and seeing what it's all about, have a look here: https://www.theoutdoorfitnesscoach.co.uk/
The sun arrived by Friday for our social morning run and the gang went out with Jenny for another glorious run.
parkrun Day saw LFRs at Salcey Forest, Jersey Farm, Wendover Woods, Rushmere, Rubbenbruchsee, Aldenham, Cassiobury, Tilgate, Gadebridge, Houghton Hall, Sewerby and Milton Keynes. Can anyone guess where Rubbenbruchsee is?
Taking on another ultra this weekend were Matthew and Paul...30 miles at the LDWA Winter Tanners. 30. Miles. Paul came in 10th and Matthew came in 1st! 1ST! Well done, both! Amazing efforts.
KGL - although now running for another club *sad face* - ran herself a great marathon PB of 3.27! Her first ever sub 3.30! No egg outfit this time though!
Sam took on the Stowe Winter Trail race. A lovely race she would definitely recommend. 6k and 12k options. And run all on paths so minimal mud! Nice running, Sam!
And the final event of the weekend was the Fred Hughes 10 Miles. Slippery and hilly, but Chair Steve, Lindsay and Sally all made it round in one piece!
That's all for this week. Happy Running, LFR!
