The February Cake Night took a dramatic turn when three...yes THREE...of us hit the deck. The battle scars are real. Back to the clubhosue for antiseptic wipes and cake. Thank goodness it was cake night! Be careful out there folks, watch your footing in the dark, and don't get blown away in the wind tomorrow!
Anne took to the Fartlek whistle on Wednesday with a mischievous grin; Captain Dan and Coach Matt put the Improvers to the test on Thursday; and JK led another glorious trail run on Friday.
parkrun Day saw LFRs at Oxford, Milton Keynes (where Ian Bisby ran a PB!), Linford Wood, Sewerby, Houghton Hall, Rushmere and Dunstable Downs (where Jim was testing out the new short course). At home in Rushmere we had PBs from Joe Bidlake Hill, Jo Green (again!) and Catherine Thackray (again!) - well done all! And KGL down for a visit again and returing from the other side of the world the day before...came in 1st lady!
Another quieter weekend thanks to Storm Ciara (if anyone can pronounce this, do tell) with some events cancelled including the London Winter Run which many LFRs had been training for. And Matthew Ma called it quits 35km into his Brecon to Cardiff ultra when hypothermia and Storm Ciara came to get him. Think you made the right decision, Matthew.
The big, big, BIG, news of this week was our Coaches heading off to be assessed for the Coach in Running Fitness Qualification. Three of them went. And three of them came back as qualified coaches! CONGRATULATIONS Matt, Annis and Debbie! Excellent work!
That's all for this week. Happy running, LFR!
