I hope everyone had a good summer and below is what will be going on in the first week. You can just turn up to whatever you want and the sessions on a weekday are all free of charge.
Monday -- 5:30pm - 6:30pm -- Circuits in Goodwin Activity Room 2.
Circuits is an all round general body exercise session, you go round in groups performing different activities e.g situps, starjumps. To get there go into the gym/pool entrance of Goodwin and turn right, tell the staff you are doing circuits with ShUOC and they will let you through.
Monday -- 8:30pm onwards -- Pub at Fox and Duck in Broomhill
A good chance to meet the other club members.
Tuesday -- 6:00pm -- Intervals. Meet at entrance gates of Goodwin at 6.
Intervals are a great form of training where you alternate between running fast and then resting. We do this round a grass field in endcliffe park.
Thursday -- 6:00pm -- Hill training. Meet at gates of Goodwin at 6
Similar to intervals but utilising the Sheffield terrain to provide the challenge.
Sun- Give it a go fell running
For this we will get a coach from Bar One out to the Peak District, where we will split into groups depending on how far/fast you want to run. Then come back and have some food and drinks at bar one if people want. A more detailed email about this will be sent in the next couple of days. Tickets are available from the box office.
For those who are interested in doing some orienteering we will be hosting a session on that some point next week.
I look forward to seeing some of you later this week

There is talk about setting up a series of orienteering races aimed specifically at juniors (under 21s) for next year, like there used to be a few years ago. This will be a great opportunity for the juniors in the club to compete at big, dedicated events, which doesn't happen very often. Read on below and if you think it sounds good, please like the facebook page to show your support, and if you have experience of competing in previous Junior Cup series' then post any positive comments you may have. It will all help this showstopper become a reality for next year.
