First up, as posted earlier today on the Club Facebook page, we’ve unfortunately had to cancel the Christmas social planned for 4 December due to very low take up of tickets (10!). Sadly people are either already committed with lots of non-Club social events or still not very comfortable going out in larger groups (and with today’s new variant news who can blame them). Still, that might improve the performance of the cross-country teams the next morning …
Life goes on as they say and despite it feeling a lot more wintry now and it being distinctly off-season with there being less than a month to go until Christmas (sorry!) there’s lots of training sessions keep active and healthy. There’s no Club rides posted up for Sunday as yet (weather does not look especially inviting), so if you go out riding please be careful in the wind and cold.
I would urge everyone to have a think about one thing they want to improve on over the next month, whether that’s some gym work, swim technique or strength and flexibility (hint the Club yoga sessions are very good for this last one) or something completely new like off road biking. On advice from my physio today and wasting some time on Instagram tutorials I’m taking up skipping …!
Well done to all the participants in the virtual bike and run time trial last weekend, another great way to try out something different as part of the Club community, thanks again coach Sean for organising.
Finally good luck to all Club members racing in the Eynsham 10k on Sunday, and thanks Jeff for organising a post run pub roast lunch!
Happy training everyone, have a great week.
Any questions, as ever just ping me.
