Ok everyone – I have updated the training post to include pacers for this week. We currently only have Mark on 8 min mile and Dave on 12 min mile.
We have moved to set routes with the onus on runners to know the route and those leading are pacers more than leaders. Therefore we can open up the pacing role to non run leaders. Englan Athletics best practice is for a qulaified run leader to be heading up each run but there is a degree of flexibility around this.
So…would anyone like to have a go at pacing a group on Thursday night? We need someone to do 9 min mile, 10 min mile and/or 11 min mile.
Remember it is up to runners to know the route. If you are a pacer its also pretty useful to know the route!
Please comment if you want to give this a try – you don’t have to be to the milisecond but be able to keep around your target pace and be mindful of those that may be struggling. Runners if you are with someone trying to pace for the first time please be patient and supportive!
HRC members please help us to get the most our of club run that we can!!

I'm not sure I quite managed that - it was just as tough as I remembered, even though this time I wasn't attempting to race it - but I'm glad I went, and the Mersea Island Lions Club is a great charity that w […]
A quick round-upMany of my blog posts are essentially round-ups of my racing and training. Since one of the main aims of writing it is in order for me to keep a "running diary" and to chart progress, I make no apologies for this. Sorry about that. However, I do always try to include things that are relevant to all runners, since I am not vain enoug […]
This month has been extremely busy one as we wait for the AA inspector to come and hopefully get the rossettes that we have all worked hard for in the kitchen. This month alone neither of us has had hardly any time off, cooking and producing some fantastic looking food, now everyone is getting extremely […]
Its been hard to establish a running routine since I started my job as a chef last November. People say it can be done you just have to work your life around it and find what’s best for you, but when you start work at 10am and get home at 11:30pm then do the same […]
I used to think that because I run and burn loads of calories I could eat/drink exactly what I want which is wrong as food and drink are your fuel to run, after all I am not fat, but my problem is I don’t eat enough and when I loose weight I look gaunt which is […]
I have been thinking about writing my own blog for a while now, just never got round to it. I have in the last 6 months got myself a job working as a Senior Chef de Partie at a olde style Inn, in a village just outside Cambridge. Theredlionwhittlesfordbridge A place with a growing reputation […]
