Hook Runners Newsletter

Club training sessions this week:

Although the days are getting longer we still expect our members to wear light colours and preferably some form of Hi-Viz and/or reflective clothing.

Monday 7pm with Lucy – week nine of the ten week ABC course.  Recent graduates and other members are welcome to attend and support.

Tuesday 8:45am with Penny or 7.30pm with Pete – 1km intervals with jog recoveries: these are steady efforts at 10k pace with a slow jog recovery of about 200m. Number of reps will vary on your speed, but overall running time is the same for everyone.

Wednesday 8pm with Terry – Nominally the Marathon Group session but suitable for all. This week it’s a long threshold session. The schedule is 5-7 miles but the format of the session this week will be two longer efforts with a short easy run break in the middle.

Thursday 7pm – Monthly Handicap – starting at the Raven. If you haven’t got a start time, then let Tim know. If you’re able to assist too, then we’d appreciate your help! This year the handicap direction will rotate each month, this week – anti-clockwise.

Saturday 9am – Basingstoke parkrun (War Memorial Park)

Sunday 8am – Group runs

Each session starts at HCC (except for parkrun and handicap) and is suitable for ALL abilities, but don’t do harder sessions on consecutive days. If you have any questions or concerns about these sessions please ask.
