Gaddesby 7

A tad warm, but otherwise a good day to sample a new scenic and testing course. Unsurprisingly, with the close proximity to the WE8 and the multitude of competing attractions, we were a bit down on numbers. However, those that did make it seemed to have a good time. Provisional results.

Tuesday Session 24/5/16

We will be working on hip flexibility this week. Tightness in this area can lead to injuries and pain elsewhere e.g. knees. Improvement of hip mobility can also contribute to gains in stride length and hence performance.

Training 25/5/16

We're taking a trip to Saddington (LE8 0QH) this week. Routes: 8.8 miles (road), 6.2 miles (road with off-road option), 5 miles (road) and 4.4 miles (road + off-road).

Hoggette Hat-trick!

Winter League Trophies

Congratulations to Emma (1st V45), Charlotte (2nd V40) and Jackie (2nd V50) in the 2016 LRRL Winter League.

West End 8

Well done to those who braved the hill in South Croxton. Clare grabbed a PB but the stars of the day were Tim and Trudy who both had by far their best races of the season so far. Provisional results.

Livingston Relays

Well done to our two men's teams and to captain Rambo for correctly picking the four fastest on the day (just) for the 'A' team. Team A (16th of 35): James Boyd 17.41, Baz Barratt 20.54, Mark Ramsden 18.06 and Ben Milson 19.31. Team B (32nd of 35): Tom Martin 20.57, Dan Bannatyne 23.09, Max Barratt 24.59 and Mike Cummins 21.12.

Kibworth 6

Well the hills were still there; unmoved by threats involving the use of bulldozers or high explosives! A cold wind failed to spoil what was a perfect morning for running and a handy crop of Hoggs turned out to pit themselves against one of the toughest courses in the County. We welcomed Tim to his first road race for the club and Ashley, James B and Edd to their first league starts of the year. Inevitably, the tougher course had an effect on times, but Charlotte, Baz, Brian and Tom impressively bucked the trend by improving on their Barrow times. The ladies packed well with both senior and veteran teams finishing in the top 30. Draft results.

Takeover!

A big thank you to everyone who helped make the Roadhogg/SJ takeover of the Leicester Victoria parkrun such a success. Special thanks to Race Director Rich Norton for pulling it all together. We also had three of our current crop of beginners running; two of whom were doing their 'graduation' parkruns. Congratulations to Sukhi, Nehal and Rosie.

Stilton 7

Steve P Dale

Probably because we don't run it that often, we think of the Stilton course as harder than it really is. Asfordby hill is hard work, particularly the second time, but times (on average) were no slower than Barrow. We were pleased to welcome Liz, Emily and Chris to their first runs for the club and to have Rob with us again. Dale, Jackie and Mark R hit the Gold Standard we've come to expect of them (despite the latter two having been 'on the razz' the night before), but we were also delighted to see Steve P follow up his Gold in the Las Palmas 10K with another one in the slightly less salubrious surroundings of post-industrial Asfordby. Draft results.
