Run Group Week Ten Term Three

Week Ten

This morning’s running group was just about perfect.  Every individual in the group was engaged and smiling and looked like they were really enjoying the run. The sun was out and we were in a beautiful place.  What a great way to finish a fantastic term of running.  Thank you to our great helpers today (and all term) – Claire, Kath, Rich, Kate and Kylie.

The Training

We did the usual circuit of hops and hurdles – including our new animal friends Frog Star Jumps, Penguins and Bears.  Then it was a quick run over to the park at the back of school for 5 x the hilly wooded circuit.  Both groups (5/6 & 3/4) ran really fast and almost all of the group volunteered for an extra rep.

We all got three cheers from the kids to say thank you for training this term – which was a lovely way to finish.

Level Three Coaching

I am away in Queensland for the next week doing my Level Three coach’s qualification with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) – the international body for track and field.  I’m really looking forward to spending eight days getting new insights and techniques to apply to my future coaching.  I will let you know how it goes.

Next Term

We will be back next term – and I will let you know nearer the time exactly what dates.  Have a great holiday break.

Happy Running!
