Another exciting week for the DRC Juniors. Wednesday included an ‘Out and Back’ session where our athletes had to maintain the same or faster pacing on the ‘back’ as they had on the ‘out’. Thursday included some of the best all round great training that runners can do; hill reps.
Friday’s indoor athletics was extra exciting as we had our first chance to try out our brand new Reverse Boards. These boards allow our athletes to practice their maximum velocity running (sprints) and they work really well for Relay Races which is what we did. Even the coaches and some of the parents joined in for an exciting final.
Sunday saw some great performances from our DRC Juniors in the final AAA Cross Country race at Pitville Park. Well done!
