Good evening Striders! Hope you are all having a good week so far. Tomorrow night’s session is Mona Fartlek. This type of training is great for improving stamina and endurance, but also for boosting speed, strength and power. The session will consist of the following tempo runs 2x90sec, 4x60sec, 4x30sec, 4x15sec with a slower tempo recovery of the same time between each repetition. We will meet as usual at the Londonderry Park pavilion at 7.15pm. Looking forward to seeing you all there! Chris

Tonight's Long Hills Session with Coach Emma. Great turnout and super attitude from all athletes. Photo shoot being done by Ards and North Down Council for Best In Borough Christmas Video. Thanks to Graeme and Jasmine for marshalling.
Small favour for tonight. Ards and North Down Council are making a Christmas Video promoting all that's good in the borough. Tonight they are coming to video a short part of our session. This will be very good promotion of our club also. If anyone has a Christmas hat please bring it along to wear for one of the hills. Don't worry if you can't the video will only be a few seconds! Thanks. Norman.
