b. Will the Club offer part memberships for new applicants who join part way through the year? Committee has previously discussed and decided that if this is within 2-3 months of the annual membership renewal date, we will give them options to wait until April or to enrol immediately and then renew in April
c. What is meant by Committee shall hold no less than five meetings each year? This gives flexibility to the Committee as they no longer need to meet on a monthly basis as the administration and daily running does not require this frequency of meetings

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 three of Motivational Monday and this week it’s hills!! This will be short, 1 minute reps on an incline. Aim to keep the effort consistent on each, running tall. Try to avoid looking down or bending forward as this restricts air flow to your lungs. Slow jog back down after each, and repeat.
Tuesday 8:45am with Penny or 7.30pm with Mike – Pyramids – a great all round session with faster efforts and easy / slow recoveries. The faster efforts start short but get longer – from 200m up to 800m/1k – then reduce back down again, hence the ‘pyramid’. A good session to teach pace management and speed endurance.
Wednesday 9pm with Terry – Nominally the Marathon Group session but suitable for all. Longer threshold runs this week in the shape of 1200m intervals. These will enhance your speed endurance and continue to boost your VO2 max.
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 – clockwise.
Saturday 9am – Basingstoke parkrun (War Memorial Park)
Sunday 8am – Group runs
21 April: Southampton Marathon
