Our first practice of the season is tomorrow at 5 pm. We will meet at the Olympic oval. We normally meet at the stairwell just outside the Olympic oval main entrance (lime green on the map below).
In case anyone runs to the oval and forgets their mask (and can’t go inside) I will meet anyone inside at the stairwell then everyone will move outside via the North Entrance (see map below).
The plan tomorrow will be an easy run down to Edworthy and followed by group core strength. The core strength is a great chance to do introductions.
The first week or two will be easier runs. In a couple of weeks, we will start doing running intensity on Thursdays.
