Day 26/365 – Whitehall runners

Juggling was cancelled due to panto (on no it wasn’t, oh yes it was), so I took the opportunity of my new Bristol & West AC membership to go along to the Whitehall runners session. After first ending up in the wrong place, I ended up in the right place – a room full of runners all talking. Soon it was out to the track for a gentle 1,200m warm up then a series of stretches. After that we split up into groups to head out onto the mean streets of Whitehall. I selected Alan’s group after being promised it wouldn’t be too fast, and out we went up Whitehall Road. Once we made it to the railway path (my usual exit on the way back from the gym) we then went along it doing a train (where the person at the back sprints to the front, then once they are there the new person at the back sprints to the front, repeat). We did this all the way back to the athletics arena, and it looked a little like this:

Once we were back at the track Chris had us do 2x400m with a 400m jog recovery in between and a final 400m jog to cool down:

Then it was a gentle jog home, shower, and some cheesy mash.
