The Saturday session this week will be one that is and has been favoured by all the great distance runners over the years when speed training. It is of course the 400m repeats. Fancy feeling like one of the greats (Paula, Haile, Steve O, Paavo et al) then come on down to the Tropicana at 8:50am this Saturday morning. Don't worry it will be one or two less than the 100 that Paavo reputedly sometimes bashed out in a single session!

As many of you know I am running a race in November in Oman. It covers 195km and over 6000ft of climb in five days across desert and sand dunes. I am also looking to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer while doing so. Any support would be gratefully received and you can visit my fundraising page by clicking on the link below. All money raised goes to the charity and my trip is self funded.
