STAG Training Tuesdays 4 - 9th May 2017 Springburn Park - No.572.

Another cracking evening where I was joined by Andy, Peter & John T. Warmed up with some bearings & pacing exercises. Working in pairs was decided   by ” Scissors, Paper, Stone”.

Working in pairs an IOF Cd was drawn from the bag & described in words to your partner & then one had to commentate as the leg proceeded. A run of approx 4K was achieved.
