Marathon Training Kicks In
Tuesday Club Run is at Goldenstones
From Graham: Nice group at Yeovilton this morning doing their long runs!!
From Nat: Today I took the slow n steady group in to Ilchester, along the wonderful River which you can say looks beautiful. We got to some crossroads not sure which way to go we all decided to head out to Knole. Mark had his map with him which helped . Then we went up this massive hill Knole hill, which wouldn't be a run if we didn't have one right !!! coming down (which I was informed it was the same name where Andrew Brown is now, even i didn't know Canada hill, which a few had worked out was apart of the ash 8, we meet some lovey dogs on the way. Gornex trainers would of been handy (not mention any names ) as it was a rather wet n muddy down the lane (I deleted that from my brain ) also Lyn was gonna dive in to a very small puddle (which she didn't from victor of dibly). On the way back we went on the other side of the river and ended up by the town hall where we started our 8 miles run. Thank you Mark for the photos and everyone for an enjoyable morning trail
From Ali: Poundbury park run this cold morning. Lovely to bump into Lauren Will and Primrose. Lauren was First Lady and PB for Poundbury for the rest of us.
From Helen: Road trip to Riverfront Parkrun, Newport, to see Charles Jardine and Karen. Good flat out and back course…happy with that and we definitely earnt our yummy brekki’s after.
PUB RUN – SOUTH PETHERTON (23RD February 2023)
From Mark: On a cool and clear night I led the group (Louise, June, Kelly, JC, and myself). Leaving the Pub, we ran up the main street, followed it round past the church and ran into a dark Carey’s Hollow. We climbed to open ground. Above us was a bright moon and two planets sitting at about 5 o clock. I think one was Jupiter. We continued up the road with Frogmary to our left. At Fouts Cross, we turned right and ran along Shapway. The light breeze was cooling. At Shapway Cross we turned left and ran along Littlefields lane. This rutted muddy narrow lane took us into Shepton Beauchamp. Turning right, we ran through the village, passed the pub and continued towards West Lambrook. At Picken Bridge we turned right. The moon and two planets were now behind us. It was then a slog up a long gentle incline to Meadowlea farm where a dog barked from a distance. Turning left we ran through Compton Durville. Turning left at the end we made our way along Compton Hill and back into South Petherton. A left turn took us back to the pub and car park. A total of 11 came for the meal afterwards. Thanks Phil for organising.
