Some track and field news plus Christmas training changes

Track and field results

I’m able to bring you news of some track and field athletics over this last weekend. Indoors at Lee Valley there was a minithon for young athletes. Lucy Rogers took part in the under 13 girls event and included a new pb of 4.89 metres in the 2.72k shot to add to 10.4 seconds in the 60 metres and a 3.03 metres long jump. Brother Harry in the under 11 competition long-jumped 2.30 metres and ran the 200 metres in 40.0 second while the turbo javelin went 11 metres.

At the other end of the age-groups Phil Spivey was due to be competing in a throwers’ Pentathlon at Ewell. Outdoors of course. I don’t have any details as yet.

Sussex cross-country championships on Saturday 9 January

If you are looking to take part in the Sussex Cross-country championships then please make sure you talk to Karen Wells first – and please talk to her before Christmas.

Christmas is getting closer

With Christmas less than 2 weeks away – and Imberhorne School being closed over the school holidays – we will see a change in our normal training sessions as I set out below.

Please note that there are additional morning sessions at East Court during the school holidays. So there are still opportunities for you to do some training over the Christmas period.

So here’s what will be happening over the next few weeks:

TUESDAY DECEMBER 15 – last Tuesday evening circuits session of 2015. Please note that this session will be on the track at Imberhorne.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 17 – last Thursday evening training session of 2015 at Imberhorne School. Please wear something festive.

SUNDAY DECEMBER 20 – normal Sunday morning training at East Court from 10.30 to 11.45.

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 23 – extra session at East Court from 10.30 to 11.45.

SUNDAY DECEMBER 27 – there will be NO training at East Court.

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 30 – extra session at East Court from 10.30 to 11.45.

SUNDAY JANUARY 3 – normal Sunday morning training at East Court from 10.30 to 11.45.

TUESDAY JANUARY 5 – first Tuesday evening circuits session of 2016. On the track at Imberhorne.

THURSDAY JANUARY 7 – first Thursday evening training session of 2016 at Imberhorne School.

What’s happening over the next week ?

Tuesday December 15 – last circuits session of 2015 at Imberhorne Upper School from 7.30pm. Note that this session will be held on the track rather than in the gym as the gym is being used for exams.

Sunday December 20 – training for all at East Court from 10.30 to about 11.45.
