AGM on Wednesday

The Club’s Annual General Meeting will take place at 7.30pm on Wednesday 20th March at Hook Junior School.  It will be your opportunity to hear about the great things that the club has been doing over the past year, our financial position and an update on races and the Southern Cross Country League from our Race Co-ordinator Tim Pearce.  As a club, we also need to approve the fees for next year, any changes to the Constitution and finally elect the Committee for next year.  The hall will be open from 7.15pm and a number of our sponsors and supporters will be attending for you to talk to.  Hopefully, as many of you as possible will be able to attend to mark the end of another club year.  All being well, we aim to be complete by 8.30pm.

The 3 resolutions for agreement by the members are as follows:

Resolution 1: Membership fees for next year will be £25 per year, the same as last year.  The membership year runs from 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020.

Resolution 2: Agree changes to the Club constitution.  The main change will be a reduction in the voting members on the Club Committee from 10 to 6 voting members by the creation of an Executive Committee.  This has been proposed to allow greater flexibility and the ability to make decisions easier if required.

Resolution 3: The proposed Club Executive Committee for next year.  The Committee will be in place from 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020 and the proposed members of the new Committee are shown in the document AGM Resolution 3.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening.

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 Pete – Motivational Monday returns!  The sessions for the next 8 weeks are largely based on the sessions coached on the other training nights so are a good introduction. This week, it’s a two mile, timed village loop. This should be at a relaxed and consistent pace. We revisit this run later in the programme and see how you’ve progressed!

Tuesday 8:45am with Penny or 7.30pm with Ann – Supersets – This is a 1200m continuous effort, with 200m fast, 400m tempo & 600m steady in a single block: think of it as moving down the gears! An easy 200 jog/walk between each.  The 200 (and to a lesser extent the 400) prompt a build up of lactate, the 600 at a slower pace encourages the muscles to flush lactic ‘on the run’.

Wednesday no training due to Club’s AGM. The marathon group should follow the session on Thursday and/or see Terry’s separate post on Facebook.

Thursday 7pm with Tim – KiloReps – Endurance/Lactate paced efforts of 1km with short recoveries (~200m). Aim to run close to 10k pace for each rep, consistency between them the key.
The session will be for a fixed time, so the number of reps will vary depending upon speed.

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.

Coming up:

1 April: Next Kit Order

21 April: Southampton Marathon
