Tuesday Training 8th Dec 20
The plan for Tuesday 8th will be to meet at 6:50 for 7:00 on the seafront for intervals in groups of 6. It will be vital that the runners in existing groups with Nick, Paul, and Carol, meet at different points close to the Tropicana so that we do not give the impression of one big meeting. This week Carol will not be able to join us and Jason has offered to take the session for the people who normally run with Carol on the front.
Rather than meeting generally in one area along the roadside before splitting into groups please can everybody go directly to your meeting point as soon as you leave your car or arrive on the front.
Those people who normally run with Carol meet Jason in the usual shelter between the Trop and Sealife.
Those people who normally run with Nick please meet Nick by the Sealife centre.
Those people who normally run with Paul Baker please meet him at the South end of the Tropicana.
For everybody else who may have usually run with Sheryl, Katie, Jason, Bill, or me please meet by the shop doorway at the North end of the Tropicana where you will be immediately directed to a group for this week.
Please welcome Elizabeth Henden our latest new club member.
Suspension of club activities 5th Nov to 2nd Dec 2020
England Athletics confirmed on 4th Nov that in accordance with the government instructions all group club activity will be suspended between 5/11 to 2/12. The suspended activity includes:
• All indoor club group coaching activity • All outdoor club group coaching activity • All indoor track and field competitions • All outdoor competition (track and field, cross country, road, trail, fell and multi-terrain) • All face-to-face coach and officials’ education
The big difference from Lockdown 1 in March is that you can meet one other person from another household in outside open spaces (not home gardens). In addition, you are also allowed to drive short distances (in your own area) to reach a suitable space to exercise.
This will be a real benefit, esp. with the darker nights, enabling you to meet up with somebody else to run with and to arrange to meet and run in locations that you feel safer in e.g. the seafront.
There are full details of the lockdown rules on Gov.uk or the BBC site. There are also various examples of steps you might want to consider to make sure that you are safe running alone or at night on sites such as Runners World, Todays Runner, Wiggle etc.
Hopefully, it will only be the 4-week lockdown period this time, but we suggest that you make early use of the opportunity to make contact and run with somebody else.
