Trick or Treat Training.

Posted on 1 November, 2011 at 13:46
Halloween in Framlingham saw 36 grown adults running around calling for tricks and treats. A regression to childhood? No the members of the running club out training.
Monday night means training for the members of Framlingham Flyers. This Monday training coincided with Halloween and the two were joined together with a Trick or Treat Fartleck session around The Mowbrays.
The group split into 6 teams, each team having their own ghoulish symbols on their backs:
The trailing entrails – Curling ribbon
The zombie heads – A Pink balloon
The giant maggots – A long balloon
The huffers and puffers – Twin balloons
The flying witches – A picture of a witch on a broom stick
The skeleton staff  - A small plastic skeleton
 Each member of the team was then given a baton (a rolled up piece of papers) with either trick or treat on written it. Those in possession of a trick baton had to run hard. Those in possession of a treat got to run easy. However whenever team members passed they had to swap batons. Each team member therefore had a combination of easy and hard sections to their run. If you were unlucky you could have 2 or 3 hard sessions on the trot.
I had some concerns that the session could turn out to be ‘fright night’ and end up as mayhem, but the spell came together and it worked like a charm!

A really imaginative and enjoyable session. I think the fun factor even spurred me (and others) on to work harder than we might usually have. And it didn't hurt a bit (until this morning...) Thanks, Evette.
