What To Do Now
TURN UP! It's that simple.
The steady runs on Monday or Wednesday are perfect, since the Captain will make sure that you're NOT LEFT behind under any circumstances. These runs are gentle, even for the superstars, and often break into different speed-groups so you're guaranteed to have breath to chat.
