Drills and Intervals - Mam Tor 10/03/2018

Another training session led by Helen Elmore. The format lent itself very well to all abilities so there were quite a number of young aspirant members in attendance. Everyone had an enjoyable time and some fun with a series of drills to encourage good form through out a run. This was followed by short hill intervals run in relay pairs. The older juniors finished off with a run over Mam Tor. All of this exercise was followed by a cafe stop in Hope.

Longshaw in the snow 11/02/2018

The run may have started in the jaws of a blizzard, but there were a good number of juniors determined to go for a run. It looks like the future of the Warts may be assured.The location had to be changed 24 hours in advance so that people could actually get to the start!

Navigation Run - Langsett 10/12/2017

December’s Junior run was planned with something a bit different in mind to avoid an exposed morning on the high moors in the depths of winter. Ian Winterburn was immensely generous in offering a navigation session. An unfortunate clash with Sheffield Junior schools cross country meant there were a few who couldn’t attend. The weather forecast made it look a little doubtful for all on Thursday/Friday, but Saturday was clear and (very) cold. As the only Junior attendees, Eddie and Mia got personal, high quality teaching from Ian and followed a laid out course through the woods into the Little Don valley. The packhorse team followed on behind, with bags of spare gloves, clothing and hot drinks. The running was good and varied: wood land tracks, (a few) warting trods, open ground and moorland trails. The navigation challenges were excellently planned. Afterwards, we retired to the spotty café to warm up.

Drills and Intervals - Mam Tor 04/12/2017

A good sized group turned out for Helen's drills and intervals run at Mam Tor. Instead of the previous format of go for a social run. Helen planned out a set of drills the provide an introduction to good running form, followed by some short hill intervals. The drills were run on the old road, half way up Mam Tor and the intervals made good use of a sheltered little valley on the edge of the land slip debris. The format enabled everyone to work had, stay warm and keep together in a sociable group.
