From Derick

Greetings K-Way Jeppe members!

A good week of training that ended with a Longer Saturday run over the B School route of choice.
Thank you to Mile King for putting the maps together and allowing for distance from 10 up to 20k.  The routes were tough and even more so because of the heat.  It was great doing a different Saturday run for a change, and we will continue with this during November.
Saturday 7th November will be the Fledglings Long run choice of routes.

JON PIMM – farewell walk and run Saturday 31st October 6am – 6k or 10k
Includes refreshments afterwards in the BH room.  Jon Pimm has been a Jeppe member for 34 years, and he and Beverley will be retiring to Swellendam in the Cape at the end of November.  Jon is a well-known member of Jeppe, whose running career includes 14 Comrades finishes with 3 silver medals, and more recently being an active member of the walking group.  Please join us next Saturday to wish him well in his retirement.
Saturday is also be “Halloween” so come dressed accordingly!

Jeppe Hatchlings
The Hatchlings are running at 05h00 weekdays on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with distances 3/4k up to 7k.  Saturday runs at 06h00 with distances 6/8/10k.

October Spring training
Training continues this week Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 05h00 and Saturday at 06h00.  Tuesdays are “tempo Tuesday” and Captains can choose the tempo run and would suggest alternating between the various tempo routes we do.  We had had two weekends of longer runs and this Saturday will be a shorter run/walk of 6 or 10k.  We are doing a shorter run so that we can have time to celebrate with Jon Pimm his retirement to Swellendam.  Both 6 and 10k routes will be circulated later in the week.  Saturday 7th November will be the Fledglings Long run choice of routes.

TUE 27 OCT – 05h00 – 10km – Captains choice of routes to include 4 to 5k of Tempo running
