ROAD RUNNING NEWSLETTER – JULY 2017

What is the next challenge?

Is a question that I hear just about every day.

From people in the office, friends and running mates, hey I have asked some of you. So, what is the next big one you are doing? For some of us it is just staying fit, others want to better their times and some want to do a marathon towards the end of the year so they can qualify for “the big races” next year.

run1The one thing I can say, is that we are all suckers for early mornings and sore legs. But then again if you can share that with your fellow #CMC members it is absolutely worth it!

This is so true for so many of us. I have seen members in this year that have challenged themselves, worked towards that challenge and achieved beyond their own expectations.

The starting point is not the hard work, it is to set the challenge.

What is your challenge for the second part of 2017?

 

Looking back at June

Brrrr, is all I can say and July is on the way.

This time of year we tend to hibernate or so I thought. Although the pack runs are slightly smaller there are still a couple of die hard runners joining in any weather condition.

Again, I would like to urge all our members to be safe out there.

  • Run with a headlamp
  • Wear reflective gear
  • Wear bright colours
  • Always run facing the traffic
  • Try not to run alone
  • Don’t run in isolated areas

Our Race of the month was The Don Lock Memorial Run.

You must diarise this one for next year. It consists of an 8km and a 15km run. The cool thing is that you can enter both distances, run the 8km and after that run the 15km as well.

 

As various results are made available to me, I shall post them on Facebook.

I have also created a folder on Google Drive where all results are stored.

You can view this here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B1Yjl7gykMTtcTI1SnEtN2FnR3c?usp=sharing

July!

run4Cape Town Marathon is creeping closer and closer.

Many of our members will participate in the marathon to qualify for Two Oceans and Comrades next year.

I have also heard that many of you would like to make this one your 1st attempt at a marathon!

We will be hosting a couple of workshops. The aim of these workshops is to help all members achieve their running goals.

These will include:

  • Running form
  • Pacing
  • Training
  • Running on heart rate
  • Nutrition
  • Time trials (Speed work)
  • Any many more.

Keep an eye on the clubs Facebook page for this.
