Training next week
Tue 21 Aug - Kathy's Run Leeds beginners/improvers/juniors group meet Leos 6:00pm for training session (new starters welcome!).
Tue 21 Aug - Holly's Run Leeds improvers group meet Bodington Hall sports pavilion 7:00pm directions as follows, from Ring Road, go on Otley Road towards Otley, just before end of dual carriageway turn right into Bodington Hall grounds, go downhill till you get to one way system. I got this wrong last week, the one way system is anticlockwise not clockwise! The sports pavilion is on your right so you just need to go 50 yards on the one way system and turn right again to the pavilion.
Tue 21 Aug - Valley Striders meet Leos 7:00pm for 5 by 6 mins at Eccup Res.
Thu 23 Aug - meet Scott Hall 6:45pm for steady 7 miles at 8 to 9 minute mile pace (with stops).
Thu 23 Aug - Kathy's Thursday group. I got this wrong last week, confused my second and third Thursday. Ive double checked with Kathy and the session this week (23rd) is definitely meet Roundhay Park Lakeside Cafe 6:40pm http://www.kenkaiser.co.uk/thursday/
