Hi everyone,

Anyone fancy doing the Scottish relay champs on the 27th of May in Glasgow?
Could be nice to have a ERC team there. The relay consists of two males and two females, doing the three disciplines (400m swim, 5km bike and 1mile run, or something like that).

Wednesday has rolled around again and it's bright and sunny. It's also run session day.

As usual, for this time of year, the session will be held at Arthur's Seat. We'll meet at the bike rack by the top roundabout near Pollock Halls for a 7pm warmup.

Hope to see a few of you there

Thanks Penny for a great hill reps session. As the young guy who lapped me said "It beats killing yourself alone on six laps - makes it more interesting!" Arthurs Seat is a great venue and these sessions cater for all abilities - as long as you don't mind being lapped by the Boy Band!
