New Long Slow Run session (LSR) for Ratoath AC or other Athletic club (AAI members) starting this Saturday morning 22nd Sept.
Note, if you are interested in the shorter distance please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org asap and I'll forward it on to Keith who is leading the session.
I have no idea at the moment the levels of interest for a dedicated long run session, so for now the 'hard-core' will be out on Saturday morning for an 18 miler. Please bring/place your own fluids. Feel free to notify other members who maybe interested in joining us.
These sessions are also designed to accommodate runners who are not up to this sort of distance/pace and I will forward details of those sessions once I know there is sufficient interest for example I can forward alternative routes including 5 & 10 mile runs which all start/finish in the same area and go in the same general direction as the longest run.
So to kick-off this weekend….
