Good evening Striders! Hope you are all having a good weekend! Monday night's training session is Speedy Hills with a change of venue. Our Vice Captain has kindly arranged for us to have the use of the hill at the Stormont Estate for the session! Parking will be in the Mo Mowlam play park car park or in the bottom car park of the Stormont Hotel. The session will start as usual at 7.15 and we will meet at the park run start line in the estate. If you can, please car share to make it easier for you all to get a parking spot. Looking forward to seeing you all on Monday night and by the end of the session we will be able to say that we were running stormont better than the current Government 😁

Good evening Striders! I hope you all have had a good weekend. Tomorrow night's session is 2's and 1's. As the Monday night session is generally a bit longer we have added 200's into the mix too, so..... the session will be run on the 800m route and we will be running at your maximum on the 200m section of the stony path and then recovering round to the 100m section where you will give it 100% again before recovering back to the 200m section of the stony path again. This is a variation of the Drop the Hammer session and will build speed and stamina. We will meet as usual at Londonderry Park at the Pavillion at 7.15pm for a session brief, followed by a warm up before starting into the main session. Look forward to seeing you all there, Chris.
