First HAC Movie Night

Movie night at HAC, Friday 19th January. Come along next Friday evening to our first movie night. To start the event, we have decided that the first film will have a running theme. So when you come along, we will ask you to vote for one of the three selected films and we will show that on the evening. For this month the films are Chariots of Fire, Forrest Gump and Marathon Man. The film will start at 8pm, so please arrive in plenty of time, for you to vote for your choice and then just settle in for the evening. There will be snacks available and of course the bar will be open. Thank you the Clubhouse Team.

5K Masterclass Progress Update

Saturday 6th January saw the first 5k Parkrun progress check for the Dash for Fitness Winter 5k Masterclass, in association with Hillingdon Athletic Club. The Masterclassers have been in training for 3 weeks, although due to Christmas festivities and various bugs doing the rounds, some have done more training sessions (and “homework”) than others!  Nevertheless, there were still plenty of remarkable performances……

Despite only making 1/3 sessions, Bhavesh managed to repeat his speedy 22:48 PB time from the last Parkrun, and Kate was still able to beat her target time by 19secs (taking a whopping 49secs off her 35:00 baseline); Of those that made 2/3, Andrea did fantastic to get a new PB, whilst previous non-runners, Fauzia and Anne-Marie, both smashed their target times by finishing in an highly impressive 41mins.  Perhaps the biggest stars were the two that attended 3/3: non-runner, Cindy, managed to run for the entire 5k (couch to 5k in 4 weeks!) and, as a result, annihilated her target, coming home in 38:06; and Thomas, who has never run anything more than short distances, put in an even more incredible performance finishing in a stunning 31:44.

In addition, whilst not able to be at the ParkRun, Rohit managed to run a new 5k PB (on the treadmill); Jane (another 3/3/ attendee and new runner) completed her own 5k progress check – more than 10mins ahead of target (wow!), and Jay did his longest ever continuous run of c7.5k. Congratulations to you all!  Everyone now has a further 3 weeks of training before the second progress check on 3rd Feb.

We are now taking registrations for the Dash for Fitness Spring 5K Masterclass, in association with Hillingdon Athletic Club. So, if you’re a non-runner wanting to experience the fitness, health, and state of mind benefits of running, a beginner wanting to go further, or an existing runner wanting to go faster, please email dashforfitness@btinternet.com to register your interest. Track sessions will be on Thursday nights from 6.15pm-7.15pm, starting on March 15th.  It costs just £50 for the 12-week course.

Clubhouse closed this Sunday

The clubhouse will be closed, with no changing facilities, this coming Sunday the 14th Jan. This in order for us to accommodate the air cadets who are staging their annual cross country race in Ruislip Woods. They repay our hospitality by helping to marshal the Finchley 20 for us.
