Final Run Group Term 1

Final Run Group Term 1

Today was the last run group for this term.  It was great to have all the kids back together for one more training run.  The weather held off and we got a chance to hear all the stories from School Cross Country.  Our goal of having 40 kids enjoy their day at School Cross Country was very clearly met.

Today was really satisfying and fun for me as the coach of the group.

Today’s Session

The focus today was on having some fun.  Claire popped down to see the kids for the first time in weeks (she has been out of action for a while) which was lovely.  We did a few hops and hurdles warm-up and then made a spur-of-the-moment decision to go for a run to North Avalon.  With me, Kate and Yvette, we were just a little short of adult-power, so Kylie “nominteered” to help out.  Thanks Kylie – nothing like 2 minutes notice to run 4km with a load of kids.  We did Yellow Brick Road to North Av, then back on the sand to the surf club.  A quick foot wash in the pool and back to school.  Brilliant!

Extra Training for Zone

I will organise a few extra training sessions for Zone – some on Sundays and some on Saturdays.  I will send out information before each.  The first session will be on Saturday 8 April at 7:30.  Meet at North Avalon Soccer car park.  That start time should get us there before the first soccer game.  These sessions will be a little harder than Wednesdays – and Adults are welcome to join us too.

Term Two

We will be back next term – with a focus on helping the kids representing the school at Zone and continuing to improve fitness for the others.  And a bit of fun thrown in.

Extra Runners

If you have friends who want to join the group – please pass on my email or phone number to them.  We usually get a few extras before Zone – so happy to add to the group.

Happy Running!
