I was going to post this under the Harriers chat but as it s closely related to the winter offroad training I will post here!
You know me and how my mind chatters all the time for magical ideas and my passion for running (one day I ll win some races too ...I promise, might be an ultra but..)
Anyway back to the subject. I was happy to see the Tuesday off road group attracted more than a few people and I feel it might grow even bigger? So to celebrate the fact that there are runners that love running on te fells, mountains and trails throughout winter, in the dark and in any conditions (remember the head torch run on ice we did last year!!?) I thought it would be good to start a fell running society within IH, something like the Bedlamytes ...we can run, train hard, talk about history, poetry, love nature and enjoy the magic of the night. And of course we can have our outdoor socials too.
Down to Tuesday training now, I was thinking I should work on 10-12 offroad routes and start from 7-8 miles, when the team becomes stronger go up to 10 and before Christmas reach a 13-15 miler on a club night? If we have time of course. And it won t be all steady running, every route a different challenge, hillier, more technical, on snow perhaps (wishing for snow already)
What do you think IHers? What do you think team? Could this society be the start to new beginnings and getting to know our wild ourselves a bit better?
So next Tuesdays offroad run as soon as I map it!
