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 Tuesday 9 August - Sunday 14 August 2005

Tuesday 9 August - 6:30pm - Bramcote Leisure Centre
Same as last week.
10 miles with 1*1600m, 2*800m and 4*400m with 400m recovery between each.

This week's times:

1600 5:30.8
800 2.38.5
800 2.44.1
400 1.25.3
400 1.28.2
400 1.25.8
400 1.24.1

These were my times, I'm sure that the leaders were 10 seconds quicker for the 1600, 6 seconds for the 800's and between 2 and 4 seconds ahead for the 400's. Also shows how lazy I became near the end!
