Weekly Update 3 December 2021

Hi Everyone,

December already … that reminds me I must start thinking about Christmas presents!

Same old 2021 though, and some more covid updates from Covid Officer Georgie in addition to the current requirements in relation to social distancing and test and trace:

“You will no doubt have seen the news about the new Omicron variant of COVID-19. We are not required to change our response to Covid, but we would suggest that it would be sensible that everyone needs to be more particular to take individual responsibility for minimising risks to our Club community, and we would remind you of the following precautions you should actively consider:

  1. Lateral Flow Test twice a week
  2. Pre-session checks: do not leave home to attend training if you have a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss of or change to  sense of smell or taste. If you have any symptoms then follow NHS guidance on self-isolation.”

Not even Omicron can stop the Cross Country season though and on Sunday there’s Round 2 at Cirencester. Plenty of muddy fun and VO2 max gut busting hills to get you in shape for the party season – good luck to everybody racing, make the Club colours proud! Many thanks to Dan for coordinating and Grace for stepping up to help with kit officer duty.

Finally, please please if you can’t make a session, which we know can happen with general work and life circumstances, make sure you cancel any slots as soon as you possibly can. That way the coaches know how many to expect, but more importantly other Club members are able to take advantage of the limited capacity that the Club pays for and that the coaches give so generously of their time.

Rant over – happy training everyone, have a great week.

Any questions, as ever just ping me.
