VOC 5K 2013 – RACE RESULTS

VALE OF CLWYD 5K 2013 – RACE RESULTS

125 runners from around the region and further afield, turned out to create a large field for the 2nd VOC 5K. Local club Denbigh Harriers turned out in their numbers and featured prominently. However the winner was Abergele’s Darren Blazier who overtook early leader Craig Davies just before the 2k mark and didn’t relinquish his lead thereafter – finishing in 17:27. Craig finished second in 17:48 with Buckley’s David Gilbert claiming 3rd in 18:22, 30 seconds ahead of 1st vet50 Vic Belshaw, in fourth. The women’s race was a close contest between Helen Davies of Wrecsam Tri and Lynne Wright of Clwydian, with Helen winning in 18:58 and Lynne following closely in 19:08. Rhian Pierce of Denbigh took 3rd lady with 20:22.

Many thanks to all helpers and runners who made the event a success and I hope to welcome you all back to the Vale of Clwyd for another of our races in the near future.

VALE OF CLWYD 10K 2013 – RESULTS

Vale of Clwyd 10k 2013 RESULTS.

The Vale of Clwyd 10k enjoyed another good turnout despite 40 DNS from those pre-registered – perhaps celebrating Wales’ victory over England too much the night before??!! The VOC 10k 2013 enjoyed ideal running conditions and it was Simon Roberts (Buckley) who took the honours with a winning time of 36:03, whilst Isobel Redfearn (Colwyn Bay AC) retained the ladies title in 40:54. Mention must go to Gary Norgrove of Wrexham Tri, who took 3rd place last year and was leading fairly comfortably at the 5km stage, looking well set for a win when he accidentally took a short-cut and therefore couldn’t be awarded the race win, as all other competitors completed the full course.
Many thanks to all runners and marshals who took part and helped to deliver another successful vale of clwyd race and I hope to welcome you back soon.

Joe Cooper (Race Organiser).

Loving the job….

Well I have had a fantastic day today. Am feeling 100% again after a bout of illness last week and have been full of beans all day. The weather has been almost perfect for outdoor training today and I have been out in it all day with clients, with lots of Personal Training and a Nordic Fitness and a Forest Fitness session involved too. The highlight has got to be the sunset over the Snowdonian mountains from the Clwydian ridge at 6pm – breathtaking! The days also continue to get longer, what an optimistic time of year, especially when the sun is shining and fitness levels are rising…well done everybody :-)

Fitness Day Llyn Brenig

Well done to all of you who came and successfully negotiated of 5 hours of outdoor exercise in the beautiful surroundings of Llyn Brenig. We covered over 10 miles whilst circling the lake, including plenty of stops for exercises on route, with great views to keep the mind off of the hard work :-) . Liz, Andrew, Gill, June, Pete, Dyfan, Jenny and Sian will all sleep very well tonight and got through some impressive work today :-)

Including all the stops and extra exercises that you did that wouldn’t be recorded on my gps, I’d suggest you all covered well over 12 miles today. Well done once again. GPS data from todays session can be found by following the link at the bottom of this email, click on ‘check this move’ to get the full page up.

Next Fitness Day will be at Loggerheads country park on Saturday April 6th from 9.30am

Booking’s being taken NOW!

In all weathers….

Well I certainly have some dedicated clients. The last few weeks and months have certainly brought us some extremes when it comes to the weather, flash floods, snow and ice, and most recently some very strong winds in which me and my clients have been exercising once again today and this evening! Two words that immediately spring to mind for me are invigorating and refreshing! You can also add to that – satisfying and energising! It’s easy for me though, I am used to it and I absolutely LOVE being out there, in all weathers, but I have got to salute my clients – both group and personal who have, and continue to do battle with the elements to get out there and exercise in the great outdoors. Of course, my presence with them helps to get them out there, as even the most seasoned outdoor exerciser looks out of the window from time to time and thinks ‘no, not today.’ That is easy to do, but time after time you keep coming out and giving me your all during our sessions. It’s relatively easy for me to give you direction, and the right programming – it’s a lot harder for you to deliver that through hard work and application. So, in summary, to all of my clients …well done and keep it going-the Spring (and hopefully some sunshine) is on it’s way!!!

2013 aspirations…

Well I am really excited at this time of year, as it is always a time when I assess and decide upon a range of things to do and achieve for the coming year. I have the Excalibur Marathon coming up in March, as well as (the week after) a traverse of the 110mile Cleveland Way. April brings a 3 peaks challenge involving cycling between the peaks, as well as climbing them of course!! A coast to coast mountain bike trip in Wales is on the cards for the early summer as well as a sustrans long distance route yet to be confirmed with Mrs C! In addition I am keen to get over to some of the isolated mountains in Snowdonia and Mid-Wales to tick off the final few of the 138 mountains in wales I have yet to summitt. There are bound to be lots more adventures undertaken on impulse, and the great ting is that there is so much to do! We have a wonderful outdoor playground which to explore and I’d urge all to set themselves some targets with regards to getting active outside – whether it is to undertake your first ascent of Moel Famau, to try a new exercise activity or to just simply exlpore new areas that you know exist, yet haven’t quite got around to exploring. It is a really positive thing to have goals, no matter how small or large so I would urge you to make one or two of yours fro 2013 to involve getting out there amongst our spectacular countryside!

Jubilee Plunge

Last Sunday saw 75ish runners gather on a windswept Moel Famau for the annual Jubilee Plunge fell race – involving a fast and furious descent via whichever route you choose, to the back garden of the Golden Lion Llangynhafal….a truly exhilirating run and at 2.2 miles, short and fast in terms of fell runs. The mad dash from the start was great fun, and 13.28 secs later I found myself finishing in a respectable 17th place. A few of my clients completed this race, running brilliantly – a run of this nature tests your ability on rough ground at pace and as well as a good degree of confidence and fitness, skill is required as the ability to pick your lines at pace is essential to you getting down safely and in the quickest time possible. A thorough workout of not just the primary, large muscle group but the smaller, stabilisers in and around the joints and the core belt…all of which were sore for me until Tuesday! To sum up, a great run in fabulous local scenery :-)

Festive Fitness

Had a great day today up in the clwydians with clients, another drizzly, murky day but everyone looked really energised by the end of each respective session, with any over-indulgences forgotten about. A comination of the right exercise and the fresh mountain air is a great recipe to get you going again! Look forward to more of the same tomorrow with a busy day in the offing, followed by the Jubilee Plunge fell race on Sunday :-)
