Interval Training – Thursday, 13 April 2017

This Thursday’s interval training session is the last one before we revert to gleeful, unstructured leisure running. Handcrafted in Louisville (Kentucky) by underpaid baggage handlers, it has primarily been designed to showcase United Airlines’ commitment to delivering a “customer-centric” service, while “buying wholeheartedly into the customer narrative”. It will also enable club members to burn …

Interval Training – Thursday 5 April 2017

This week’s interval training session serves as a notional performance barometer for club members competing in spring marathons. While being mindful of illusory correlations and avoiding the temptation to perceive relationships between variables even when no such relationships exist, you are invited to undertake a series of 8 (eight) repetitions, each consisting of 2 (two) …

Erratum: Interval training, Thursday 2 March 2017

Earlier on this week, the firm which acts as an intermediary and provides the committee with details of upcoming interval training sessions, handed us the wrong envelope. This Thursday’s session will therefore NOT require that (paid-up) members enjoy some frisbee on Barnes Common before going to an evening lecture at the Natural History Museum on …

Interval Training – Thursday 1 February 2017

After a month of January that brought with it a not inconsiderable amount of bad news (the appointment and investiture of a shit-slinging orange gibbon to the highest office in the land, the passing of the Member of Parliament for Linlithgow, etc.), Barnes Runners brings yet more bad news with which to “kick off” February: …
