Running Tip of the Month
Loosen your grip
A lot of runners hold tension in their upper body. This can easily make a regular run feel twice as hard (not to mention the effects on a longer run).
To check yourself, try this simple trick the next time you go for a training run: Roll up a sheet of paper and run with it for a few minutes (as if you were holding a baton in a 400-meter relay). If the paper comes back crunched, you are squeezing too hard! Allowing your hands to loosen up translates into reduced tension in the shoulders and less wasted energy.
Zinikele - It takes all of you!
Congratulations to all the Comrades finishers. You made us all proud. Well done to Alfred Matema with his silver medal. Alfred was the first Irene member to finish with Nadine Breytenbach the first Irene lady.
Hats off to Keith Reynolds who finished his 30th Comrades to receive his triple green number, the first in our club’s history. Congratulations to Danie Cornelissen and Aletha van den Bergh who both received their double green numbers after completing their 20th race.
Well done to Gerhard Koekemoer, Juan Koekemoer, Theuns Strecker and Louis Visser who did their 10th race to receive their permanent numbers.
