The Rugby Club

imageI did something I’ve never done before today; run between home and the running club and back, as well as doing the training in-between. A total of about 11.5 miles.

The base of Rodillian Runners is at Stanly Rodillians RUFC at Manley Park Stanley.  It’s great to be associated with the rugby club because we get the use of the facilities at the club house as well as support a fellow local sports club.  All the club’s runners are also members of the rugby club.  We have even been known to have a joint training session with the rugby team and we may do again some day!

We did a 4 mile training route where faster runners double-back evey so often, the idea being we all finish pretty much together.  This evening however there wasn’t a huge amount of difference in the pace people were running so not that much running back.

As for the run back home, it was hard! Particularly just two days after the Temple Newsam Ten on Sunday.
