Carb party, Friday 7 April

Why not come along to an informal Windmiler gathering to consume a few carbs?  You may be about to do a Spring marathon or just like the idea of coming along because pizza and pasta are, well quite nice!  Oh, and of course the company will be good!  We have places for 30 people, so first come first serve.  7:30pm on Friday 7 April at Al Forno restaurant, 2A King's Road, Wimbledon, SW19 8QN.  Email the social team if you’d like to join us: social@windmilers.org.uk.

Going from strength to strength - injury prevention and injury recovery talk by Steve McCann and Giselle Smith

Steve and Giselle are sports masseurs who have helped many a Windmiler with niggles and injuries.  They have very kindly agreed to give us a talk on injury prevention (Giselle) and injury recovery (Steve). So, if you’ve been doing a lot of training recently and feeling it or not why not come and join us for this talk. There’ll be the opportunity for questions too.  8:30pm on Tuesday 28 February, after training, at the Wimbledon Rugby Club, Barham Road, SW20 0ET.
