Red River Runners will meet at Sedona on Saturday 15th October at 3.55 PM.
Ian Fox is taking care of a Beginners Run, as well as catering for the 5 – 7 K distances, and Sune will take the ones going further, with target distances of 7 – 14 K. Rehydration with brews of own choice will be organised and supervised afterwards.
The time trial is postponed to the weekend after (on the 22nd), as the stopwatch is displaced and last seen drifting along a beach in Thailand attach to our master timekeeper.
Beginners and occasional runners
From now until race day on 11 December 2011, Ian Fox will be tailoring the beginners runs in such a way that occasional (and beginner) runners will be able to build enough confidence to enter and complete the 10km run. The concept is to build up endurance in manageable steps by learning techniques (such as walk breaks) that take the pain out of a 10km run. If there are sufficient novice runners interested in following this series of runs, Ian Fox will accompany them on 11 December 2011 to help set a pace they can manage without pain. Surprisingly, many will find that they will have enough energy left to finish strongly
Speed training on Wednesday (12th October) is on schedule at 8.15 PM precise. It has been a success so far with increasing number of participants, and we’ll continue until December. It’s a bit late in the evening, but the alternative is at 5 AM, which I believe will attract only the crazy ones – and we are surely not in that category 🙂 .. yet.
