Farewell

Nottingham City Harriers was the name adopted by a group of runners at the end of 2003 who, upon resignation from a local athletics club, set up their own independent training sessions.

The numbers have dwindled over the years and traveling to training venues at rush hour has got ever more difficult with worsening traffic conditions. So it has been decided to end the informal group from 17th January 2018, the remaining individuals continuing in a private capacity.

Many thanks to the runners who have supported these sessions over the years but we hope to still see some of you from time to time in the future.

Training and Racing 21 December - 28 December 2004
Tuesday 21 December - 6:30pm - Tennis Centre (the water is back on for a hot shower)
This week I'll be mostly..........running at a consistent pace.

Aim to set off at 6.40 ish for the first mile (warm up), then running 6.30 - 6.20 for the rest, certainly no quicker than 6.10s.

This week I'll most certainly not be................doing 4 miles at 7+ min miles, followed by 6 miles at break neck speed, interspersed with random 1/2 mile sprint reps. If my heart rate monitor shows 180, as it did last week, at any point, I will almost certainly implode, cluck like a chicken, and complete the run in the gymnastic crab position.
