Saturday marks the start of this year’s Southern Athletics League, in which Heathside will compete with the 15 other clubs in Division 2 in a meet each month between now and August.
In each event, each club has 2 scoring athletes; A-string and B-string, as well as those who will be non-scoring. I’ve been told that athletes are often trying things for (almost) the first time in the SAL, and look forward to doing exactly that.
This weekend I will be the B-string for 100m H alongside Steff , who is a bona-fide heptathlete; hilariously I will be A-string for 400m hurdles, which I still have not done; and non-scoring for javelin, and anything else that might take my fancy during the coach-ride to Hemel Hemstead on Saturday morning.
This evening I had a brief hurdles session with Chris- here’s my last, slightly tired run, as filmed and commentated by Claudia. I loved it.
