After a good pre-season opener last Wednesday, a small group also followed up with a Saturday afternoon session for some Fartlekking.
Hopefully we are all gettinng the most out of the full pre-season program, I know quite a few of you have been following it religiously, which is great to see, and is tribute to the commitment which this club has got.
We will be holding 2 sessions as a club again this week, however the Saturday time has been changed to 10am on request of many who are wanting to get that last taste of sumnmer.
- Wednesday Evening @ Alexandria Park – 6:30pm &
