Welcome to your Highwayman 'Club Hub'

Hi there... and a big welcome to your new Highwayman; we hope this will become an essential point of reference for all our members as we move to make information easier to find and more relevant to all parts of the club.

The Highwayman is designed to be a member focused 'club hub' where we will present and curate lots of information that we hope is interesting and informative - whether this be helpful video content, upcoming matters of club interest, news, or social information, we hope that you find it useful.

But who is 'we', well that's a great question and one that, over time, I hope to be able to answer as 'everyone'. Like all things with the club, passionate volunteers and supporters make everything tick; we cannot do what we do without them. We want the Highwayman to be an extension of this spirit and act as open forum for members to contribute compelling content - got a story to tell that others would find interesting?... let us know about it. Perhaps you have some great video tips on training or a particularly amazing yoga course that keeps you from seizing up like a bag of spanners, ditto, or maybe you have an issue that you are passionate about, let us know.

This is your Highwayman and everyone is very welcome!

The Middy Report

This week's report is brought to you by Paul Cousins 

For the w/c 13 June 2022

MIKE BALE EXCELS AT THE BRITISH MASTERS

Harrier Mike Bale completed last weekend at the British Masters Athletics Federation Track and Field Championships that were held at Derby.

Mike said that all the top people in the country in his age group were competing and that he had to throw a personal best to secure a bronze medal in the Hammer (which also is a new club age record) of 32 metres and 25 centimetres.

He also threw a seasonal best in the Discus to finish in eighth place with a throw of 28 metres and 21 centimetres.

Mike won a silver medal in the Weight with 11 metres and 95 centimetres.

U15 League Track and field league

The first round of the Sussex Under 15 League took place on Friday 27 May at the Withdean Stadium at Brighton. Our team performed brilliantly to finish 5th, only a few points behind 4th. There were some fantastic individual performances but as a team they produced some excellent results scoring valuable points to add to the team total.  Each and every one of them embraced what leagues are all about by filling gaps to gain those few extra points.

There was an excellent run by Arun Khursheed to finish 2nd in the 1500m, only outsprinted on the top bend – Arun had earlier in their evening competed well in the 300m.  There was also an excellent run by Matilda Perez in the 300m, on her debut for the club, finishing in 3rd place.  Other debutants Alice Grimley and Alexandra Young performed well in their individual events.  Strong performances were also produced by Lucy Barker, Siobhan McMahon, Maggie Goodman, Anya Cole, Lois Perrett and Isobel Redd who all gained valuable points in their respective events, with many of them competing in events they have never done before.

On the boy’s side, Ollie Stay, Elliot Lister and Miller Hale ran well in the sprints, with Sam Harper competing in the 300m for the first time.  Adam Beckett and Oliver Cooper were seen running between throws to gain some vital points in the shot (2nd place in A and B string) and Javelin, with Adam completing a hat-trick of throws by finishing well up in the discus.  Oliver also won the High Jump B string!

It was such an enjoyable evening and a very proud moment for the team manager and the coaches who were present.

Results were as follows:

Boys:

Elliot Lister 7th A string 100m 14.9 secs; 7th A string 200m 30.9 secs; 7th A string Long Jump 4.00m.

Miller Hale: 6th B string 100m 14.7 secs; 7th B string Long Jump 3.63m.

Ollie Stay: 4th B string 200m 28.6 secs; 100m n/s 13.8 secs.

Arun Khursheed: 7th A string 300m 45.2 secs; 2nd A string 1500m 4 mins 40.1 secs;

Samuel Harper: 4th B string 300m 48.4 secs; 6th A string High Jump 1.35m; 100m n/s 15.2 secs.

Oliver Cooper: 1st B string High Jump 1.25m; 2nd B string Shot Putt 5.15m; 4th B string Javelin 13.53m.

Adam Beckett: 2nd A string Shot Putt 5.86m; 3rd A string Discus 14.76m; 5th A string Javelin 16.74m.

4 x 100m Relay: HHH 7th 55.9 secs.

Girls:

Lucy Barker: 4th A string 100m 13.8 secs; 4th A string 200m 28.3 secs;

Siobhan McMahon: 3rd B string 13.6 secs; 3rd A string Long Jump 4.65m.

Maggie Goodman: 5th B string 200m33.0 secs.

Matilda Perez: 3rd A string 300m 48.1 secs; 5th B string Long Jump 3.87m.

Isobel Redd: 4th B string 300m 53.1 secs; 8th 1500m A string 6 mins 31.0 secs; 4th B string Discus 10.34m.

Alice Grimley: 7th A string 800m 2mins 57.2 secs; 6th B string Shot Putt 3.74m.

Alexandra Young: 5th B string 800m 3 mins 8.3 secs.

Anya Cole: 3rd A string High Jump 1.25m; 3rd A string Discus 14.46m.

Other Harrier Results

Greg Hilton ran in the Race To The King ultra. He finished in the time of 5 hours 3 minutes and 56 seconds, finishing in a superb fourth place overall.

Sean Duff completed the Stockholm Marathon on 4 June finishing in 3 hours and 13 minutes and 6 seconds (three weeks after his last marathon!).

On pacing duties this time, he ran with his mother around this ultra marathon in 7 hours 17 minutes and 12 seconds.

Oliver Farr ran his seventy-seventh marathon on Sunday at the Enigma Millennium Falcon marathon. Oliver, finishing in a time of 4 hours 45 minutes and 6 seconds. Oliver also ran his seventy-sixth marathon a week ago at the Saturn Jubilee run with a time of 4 hours and 54 minutes. Oliver well on his way to being a member of the One Hundred Marathon Club!

Tim Miller finished in a superb 17th place in the Weald Challenge. The race is a thirteen-mile half marathon trail over the tough hot hilly trails with lots of obstacles, styles, steps, nettles, brambles, ditches, rutted fields. Tim had a great run especially on the last few kilometres where he overtook four people and he knocked six minutes off his time last year. His time for the run was one hour forty-seven minutes and fifty-two seconds.

Haywards Heath Harriers are running a Get Into Coaching’ campaign to encourage more coaches to get involved with the club. With sponsorship available to get qualified, there’s never been a better time to get into coaching. Details are on the Haywards Heath Harriers website.

www.haywardsheathharriers.co.uk/getintocoaching.html

Welcome to Group Runs

This is the area of the hub where you can find out who has similar interests and targets to you. Or just decide that you want to run with someone else over a different distance at a slower or faster pace than you usually do. You can join a group for a regular training run – to keep yourself honest to your plans – or just dip in and out as you wish!

To help you decide, we’ve organised this under three headings

  1. Group Leader Offers – general training runs just cos it’s fun to run with someone else, usually Thursdays and weekends, in different locations winter and summer
  2. Target race and distance – group leaders organise training runs for specific times, races or distances.
  3. Club Impact – coached and or led sessions targeting such things as XC, SDW or even parkrun tourism, a monthly outing to a specific parkrun event.

We’d also like to hear news of what races you’re aiming for. Other Harriers might have entered too and it would be a pity not to share the experience with someone else, even if its just a lift when we are allowed to car share…. So, have you entered a run you’ d like to share with others here? If there’s enough interest perhaps we can get one of our esteemed Group Leaders to set up a group!

The Longer Read... Bob Ruff remembered by Haywards Heath Harriers

Bob Ruff was an outstanding sprints coach for Haywards Heath Harriers and gained much success at county and national level as a sprinter in the veteran age groups. John Gill, Honorary President, Haywards Heath Harriers, recounts Bob’s involvement with Haywards Heath Harriers.

Bob Ruff first became involved with Haywards Heath Harriers when he started to bring his son, Paul, along to club nights in the early 1990s. These training sessions soon re-ignited Bob’s dormant interest of his athletic successes at school, and in particular a talent for sprinting. This had remained a mere memory for many years until he went to watch his son, by now a regular competitor in Haywards Heath Harriers colours at the Sussex County Championships, held at Broadbridge Heath, Horsham. Attending these athletic meetings encouraged Bob to join Haywards Heath Harriers himself with the intention of becoming a sprints coach for the younger section of the club. It was not long before he had gone through the process of becoming a fully qualified coach, and for well over 20 years he ran a happy and successful group of young athletes in regular training and competition.

Many of “his” athletes went on to successful careers in Sussex athletics and to win many county medals under his benevolent and enthusiastic encouragement. Not content solely with coaching he also took to competition with great enthusiasm and after cutting his teeth in some relatively low-level competition in the lower echelons of the then national league he took to regular competition in Veterans and Masters events up and down the country, and won many medals along the way.

There would have been more, but his successful veteran competitive career had to end when he needed major surgery on his leg. However, his coaching career continued. Not only was Bob Ruff a sound and successful coach and guide, but he also had a happy and personally pleasing ability to draw the best out of young athletes leading them into successful and fulfilling careers of their own.

Bob Ruff was a gentleman and a gentle man who made a great contribution to the development of his club and the many athletes he coached.

Looking After Yourself

Coach Martin talks about... trusted information and its role in injury prevention

There are many videos available online and many weekly publications, books, courses, and people making money on what works for them in training all with a subtext that this will work for you too.

So what I’m aiming to do on the 'Club Hub' is surface content from EA (England Athletics) a trusted source, and point out some sections for you which are worth looking at. It won’t necessarily be all “correct” as there are differing views about training even with professors for example studying the same areas.

In this week’s video for example, I think there will be broader views expressed about the value of cool down but that doesn’t stop me from recommending this as a great watch.

So, one of the most recent additions EA coaching website is a series the topic of “ Beat the Physio and how to avoid injury”.  There are four parts to this, about an hour in total but don’t panic if you don’t want to watch them all, I’ll give a few pointers for you on what I think are the “must watch” bits!

It’s not the catchiest of titles to attract athletes is it! You might think it’s all about what you’re doing wrong. Well maybe it’s not that you’re doing something wrong, but perhaps it’s not seeing the context and value that it can bring to you. So when I’m coaching with warm up, range of movement, drills, I sometimes wonder if I’ve got the group’s attention, or if you’re thinking “let’s get on with the session, I’ve come here to run!”

What I like about this video is that the physio - great credentials by the way, a former Royal Marine and international at 800m (under 1:50) also with pbs of 14:54 for 5k and 70:17 for HM sets out the reasons why we coaches include some aspects in training sessions, and why as runners you can also benefit from thinking about these things too.

This is about 18 mins long. If that’s too much for you in one go, for me the must watch 6 mins or so are: the sections about warm up and cool down (approx 9 to 11 mins in) and a fab summary about mobility from 14 mins to the end.

There were a couple of real gems:
- how to design the right stretches for you based on your relative flexibility now - strength or stretch?
- fitting things into every day life such as balancing on one leg whilst brushing your teeth (Mullen, T. used to do squats fyi)

That’s not to say that choice of footwear and running surface won’t catch your eye!

Coach Martin 

Athletes in profile... say hello to Andy Hind

Words Rob Watts / Pictures Andy Hind & Greg Hilton

Andy Hind only joined Harriers in 2017. But in just four years he has jazzed up the club’s online and social media presence and rebooted the club’s newsletter. In another exclusive Highwayman interview, our new co-chair bares more rather than we expected.

So, Andy. That accent. Let’s face it you’re not from round here, are you?

No, I’m from Kendal in The Lake District.

Ah, so you’re like one of those grizzled fell runners whose been scoffing mint cake and sprinting up Scafell Pike since the age of six - right?

Err, not quite. I did spend the first 20 years of my life in Cumbria, but never ran apart from at school. The following 20 years I spent mostly in London eluding exercise almost entirely. Much of my spare time back then was spent playing in bands. The main one was Iodine – so called because we thought we were an irritant to the eyes. It was actually my wife Carys who got me running. Back in 2013 she was training for the Brighton Marathon. I went on a 5K run with her and then started training for my own races. I was soon hooked.  

So how did you end up joining the Harriers?

You can blame Barry Tullett for that. We moved to Haywards Heath at the start of 2017 and one Saturday morning I got into a sprint finish with him on the downhill section of Clair parkrun. I’d started taking my running more seriously and Carys and I had recently moved down from London… we were hoping to meet new people. Barry had seen a bit of promise in me and I really liked the way he sold Harriers to me. To be honest, until then I’d never felt I was good enough to be a club runner.

And were you?

Well, I remember my first Harriers session – 400m reps at Whiteman’s Green. I was a bit too eager to impress. I went off like a rocket and was cooked after 200 metres on the first rep. I’m not sure I’ve entirely got my head around pacing to this day. When doing a recce of Leg 7 of the South Downs Way Relay recently I ended up running two minutes faster per mile than planned. Yes, I’ve got some work to do on pace discipline.

Give over, you’re being modest now. You ran the 2019 Gatwick Half Marathon in 1:23 and broke 18 minutes for 5K at Ardingly back in May. Are those the races you are most proud of?

Nope - I was most happy with my 2019 Mid Sussex Marathon time - 2:52. That’s the only time I’ll ever go sub three hours for a marathon! We had a load of Harriers doing those events that year. I knew the routes and it was really nice to finish high up the field. By complete chance I finished ninth in each of the three races.

And what about actual marathons – those not spread over three days?

Ah, I’ve got unfinished business there. I’ve done three: London, Brighton and Manchester. None went completely to plan. Let me show you.

Andy, why are you taking your top off?

So this tattoo here on my chest is for Brighton – double cramp, blew up, hated everything and, as you can see, I ran 3:26. At the end it was 50/50 whether I picked up the medal or was sick on the stones.

Charming. And this next tattoo. What’s that for?

London. 3:39 in 2016 – I got badly blocked at the back of the field. And then this tattoo here is for Manchester in 2018. That wasn’t a picnic either. I had a hamstring niggle a week before and my body wasn’t happy with me for running. There was a PB of 3:20. However, I couldn’t run again for another six months.

Ouch. You can probably put your top back on again now, Andy. But it’s not just marathons where you have unfinished business, is it? You’ve recently become co-chair of the club. What are you hoping to do with this role?

Three things really. First, I’d like more people to get the enjoyment out of Harriers that I have. That means increasing membership. But to do that we need to increase the number of coaches – which is the second thing we’re working on. We’ve already made headway with the Leaders in Running Fitness (LIRF) programme, but like many clubs we need more accredited coaches. Thirdly, a proper athletics track could be a real game changer for the Harriers. It would be fitting for a club of our stature to have access to a decent track all through the year. There are plans for such a facility and the club is working with other parties on pushing this forward.

Blimey, you sound like you know what you’re talking about on all this…

Ha! Well, I come from a communications background and began getting involved with the Harriers’ social media and website a couple of years ago, initially making it easier for people to see our site on their mobiles. I found that really rewarding and it has been a big part in why I decided to start my own business earlier this year. In 2019 I was made redundant from a senior comms role in the music industry and the voluntary work on the Harriers’ online presence played a big part in shaping my thinking about what sort of work I want to do in the future.

And what’s that?

I really enjoy building websites and providing advice about digital marketing to start-ups and established businesses wanting to get online.

Go on then, what’s the new business called?

Running Commentary, of course.

I suppose it had to be.
