Well done to Jan Burbie who undertook a 37km trail run on the Isles of Scilly as part of the Scilly 60 weekend. Jan’s task was to run the designated routes on St Martins, Tresco, Bryher and St Agnes and be back within the cut off time to catch the boat to the next island. After the previous days storm the weather improved and the race was on.

On another horrendously wet day on planet earth it was time for our annual trip to Holt for the North Norfolk Beach Runners Holt 10k.

I was 1st M55 and improved on last years time while Emma had her first race post London Marathon.Good to catch up with Simon and Anna before we made our way to The White Horse at Blakeney for an excellent Sunday lunch. Could not go for a post lunch walk as the torrents returned and the roads were awash with water. ... See MoreSee Less

The weekend coaching roadshow continued with a visit to Regency Runners in Leamington. On another glorious morning a 2 1/2 hr practical was delivered looking at running technique and how it can be incorporated into the session. The session reached a crescendo with a 4 x 100 metres to finish. Thank you Tina James for inviting me over to work with the club. That’s it a the weekends coaching is over and next weekend is my turn to race in one of my favourite events the Holt 10k. #regencyrunners #walsallarboretumrunners #runners #runtogether #runleaders #thisgirlcan #runningcommunity #runningcoach #holt10k #englandathletics ...

A wonderful sunny Saturday morning and a great 3hr session working the Run Leaders at Walsall Arboretum Running Club. Today we looked at structuring a warm up and main session (using the Lirf session cards). Additionally we looked at integrating running technique using observational analysis as a starting point. Thank you Lesley Bailey for pulling this session together. Your homemade shortbreads were delicious 😃#LiRF #runleaders #runtogether #walsallarboretumrunners #runners #running #runnerscommunity #Walsall #regencyrunners ... See MoreSee Less
