VIRTUAL LEAGUE SERIES 2K WEEK 9 – THE LANCASHIRE/SCOTIA RIVALRY CONTINUES

John Constandinou and Helen Elleker are pledged to overseeing the continuation of the ‘World’ Virtual Series League, for which we are very grateful. The weekly distance will remain at 2 kilometres. It’s never too late to join in either by visiting the Facebook Race Walking Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/139423539480219/ or if you prefer do so through me on tonymtaylor@gmail.com. Helen needs simply your name, age and club, together with your 2k time for that week and I can act as go-between if you are averse to or don’t use Facebook.

For what it’s worth I would recommend being involved in the 2k series .My suspicion is that most of our members don’t do a fast session every week or indeed fast sessions at all. However signing up to the Series does provide an incentive to fit in the 2k bash even as the body suggests otherwise. My feeling is that if we pursue this challenge over the next few months. it will pay handsome dividends when we’re back on the track or road together – hopefully the Lambert Trophy in September.
