Storm Update 🌪 🌧🌀 Hi everyone, with Storm Ophelia approaching we are keeping an eye on the updates on the weather situation and we have taken the precautionary decision to cancel training tonight. We'll back on Wednesday! See you then and stay safe 🏃🏽

**JUNIOR SESSION 16/10** Unfortunately we have had to make the decision to cancel the Juniors session with ex Hurricane Ophelia due to hit Londonderry Park with 60-70mph gusts. The safety of our Junior athletes is paramount and we are really disappointed to cancel as we had some fun activities planned. The session on the 30th is on as per usual. Apologies Megan and Phillippa

Tonight's session is Speedy Hills at Teal Rocks. This will both improve your strength and increase your speed. We will have 3 x 30 seconds bursts up the hill with a JOG down between followed by a 2 minute recovery. We will do this 3 times and finish with 2 x 15 seconds bursts (Always Finish Fast). Please meet at Londonderry Park at 7.10 for brief and warm up. Please note HI VIZ is essential as we will be running on public roads. Session should finish for 8.

The Comber Cup! Why not try a bit of cross-country this Saturday?

Super 200s session tonight with Coaches Lesley Semple and Johnny Wray. Fantastic effort all round. Well done!

Good morning Striders! It has been a busy weekend of racing across the province. Well done to everyone who organised teams or took part in any events. 👏 Monday night (9th) is ‘Training with Teach’ 👨‍🎓and the session is 200m sprints.🏃‍♂️🏃‍♀️ This session is one of the best ways to build conditioning for shorter 10K races. Alternating between sprinting and resting allows your muscles to recover quickly, so the subsequent sprint can be performed at race speed. Please dress appropriately for the session – weather forecast is for light rain. 🌧️ High viz essential. Meet at Londonderry Park as usual at 19:10 for session brief, before moving onto the main session. Any injuries or issues, please speak to me beforehand. Hope to see you tonight. Lesley
