Tuesday training this week was in Queens Park. There were plenty of regular faces and we welcomed a couple of newbies who were coming along for the first time to try us out. Here is what the session was, to give a flavour of what our Tuesday “seniors” nights are like:

Session: “The Accelerator”

Session location and time: Queens Park (entrance by The Lawns) @ 6.30pm

What3words ref: ///booster.arose.evoked

Please arrive warmed up and ready to start the session. It’s light now, but you may need something visible for your run home!

If you’ve never done the accelerator, then you are in for a treat! The aim of this session is to try and use all of your running “gears”.

You will start at a 2/10 effort. Each time I blow the whistle, you will increase your speed to the next level, so 3/10, 4/10 etc. until you are sprinting. You will then come back to 1/10 effort (walking) and we will go again.

Don’t worry if you struggle with pacing it the first time round as you get to repeat this 3 times, so plenty of opportunities to practice!

Last few of the dark nights

Great turn out tonight despite a slightly blurry location map. Especially well done to those that did Ashby on Sunday and still trained tonight!

HRC πŸ’™ HHS parkrun

Looking back to last month when Hinckley members “took over” the volunteer roles and provided pacers at Hastings High School parkrun. Our storage container in the background contains all our Juniors athletics equipment as well as signs, poles and other paraphenalia for our cross country races. It’s also used by the parkrun team to store kit used every Saturday morning.

Bagworth & Derby

Club XC at Bagworth Heath today… it was so, so wet and muddy. Fantastic running from everyone in tough conditions.

Final QuadKids

What a night! The sun was shining and the kids were amazing! Awesome performances all round. It was lovely to see some of our athletes take part for the first time, while others finished their last Quadkids on a high. Well done Hinckley Juniors you did us proud!
