2021-22 Beginners Week 14

Hello everyone!

I hope those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving had a nice one with your families.  We were grateful to be able to travel this year to my mother-in-law’s in New York where we were joined by my younger daughter. It was so nice to spend some quality time with both of them. In addition, I am thankful for the opportunity to coach and get to know all of you!  

For this Tuesday, just repeat what you did last Tuesday for intervals.

 Tuesday Potluck at Jess’ House
Just a reminder that we are having a social potluck at Jess’ house starting at 6 pm.  Her address is 29 Chepstow Place, London W2 4TT.  We hope to see you all there!

Holiday Lights at 6 am
Remember, we will be meeting on Thursday at 6 am SHARP.  If you will NOT be joining us, please let me know so we are not waiting for you.  But trust me when I say that this is a very special run that you will not want to miss!

This week we will be running two 25 minute segments but there will be many extra stops as we take in the holiday decorations.  It will be important not to start out too fast as the first half of the run will have few stops. 

We will meet at 6 am and plan to start out ASAP so please be on time.  In order to make sure we are back to get the kids off to school, we will do a quick warm up, walk one block down Wellington Road and then we will start running. When we’re waiting at Barclays and when we walk or run by the houses in town, be VERY QUIET. No talking or only whispers. Our group is very loud and we don’t want to wake up the entire neighbourhood at that early hour! Since it will be so dark, please wear bright or reflective clothing and maybe even carry a bike light or head lamp if you have one. And be extra careful of the cars!

The Route for This Week
The map below is the one used by the MWF group and it has us going to Baker Street.  To get home by 7:15, you may need to stop at Bond Street and that is fine.  However, we have found the last couple of years that to finish the full 25 minute segments, we need to run to Baker Street.  So those of you that can do that, that will be our destination if Bond Street doesn’t do it for us.  Please remember your Oyster/contactless card! See you all bright and early on Thursday!
