Winter Training 2014-15

Monday and Wednesday evenings Autumn / Winter 2014.

Arrive 18:20 for a 18:30 prompt start. 

Winter training schedule.

Mondays -recovery and tempo runs - Split into different ability groups

Wednesday - Structured efforts, track, headtorch sessions

Everyone welcome.

During the winter we meet for a run on Mondays and on Wednesdays at the new Oswestry Leisure Center at 6.30pm, down by the Club Noticeboard. (Down the Corridor just passed the Changing Rooms )

The Monday session is a steady run and  tempo sessions. Wednesday is a little different with intervals, hill work and one or two surprises thrown in ! There we would normally split into two (or more) groups.

During the Winter we keep to the roads for the street lights but as soon as the evenings get lighter we're off into the Shropshire countryside for some of the prettiest running around.

There is also a run in Ellesmere on Fridays meeting at the Car park at 6.15pm.

We also plan to offer some longer Sunday runs, open for ideas, (Berwyns, Worlds End etc)

Please see attachment to see what else the club has to offer
