Happy Birthday to Halyna this week!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support this fall. xo
Choose your favorite and channel it, as I quickly recap the past 12 weeks.
MUSIC TRIVIA & DRAW PRIZES :)
Our actual wind up will be tomorrow at our music trivia night on facebook at 7pm! I hope you can join us for some fun and our appreciation for all your support and for taking the fall clinic. You can simply log into the group facebook page and we'll start the live feed at 7pm.
VIRTUAL RACES: R135, R70 & PACE HIGH 5
Registration opens on December 1st for these awesome virtual events. Some of you were asking about the timing of Rendezvous with Wildhorse. My suggestion for those wanting to do both, is that you plan to do R135 right at the start of May, so you can taper from there to Wildhorse 50km OR you use R70 as your last build week, before you start your 2 week taper. Rendezvous raises money for Friends of the South Slopes, which gets earmarked for maintenance and trail work in OK Mountain Park every year.
PACE HIGH 5 is now a multi sport challenge which we think is super cool. You can combine nordic, backcountry skiing, snowshoeing or running to earn your 5,000m in no more than 7 consecutive days in the month of March. This event raises money for the Canadian Mental Health Association.
Registration for both events will be through Ultra Signup.
TRANSALPINE RUN / RUN 2 ACCOMMODATIONS
For those of you who are planning a trip to run in the alps next September and want to travel with the PACE group, I will be starting to promote my accommodation booking services on Wednesday with registration opening.
I wanted to give PACERs the opportunity to pre-book before Wednesday, as I am only taking 10 teams in 2022. Thank you!
SUNDAYS GROUP RUN
The deadline to sign up for this weekend's group run at Rose Valley is on Wednesday. Please sign up if you think you're going to be there and remove your name if needed, as it helps our team plan ahead if we have a list ahead of time. This is to ensure we can offer you the safest and best experience we can. Thank you. SIGN UP NOW
7:30 am start time - please see the google document for the specific parking instructions for this weekend and show us some holiday spirit this weekend by dressing in red, green, white or showing your holiday cheer. The run will be 2:30hrs to 2:45hrs for each group and there will be a 1:30hr - 1:45hr option, as well. The maintenance group will be one group, with mixed paces.
HERE is a copy of an extension to the regular fall training plan I wrote, to help you bridge to the next clinic. Of course, this is optional and you can do more or less if that's appropriate for you. I will encourage you all to tread lightly though... As once January starts, training is fully focused and starts to progress for another year. Don't get too excited too soon and keep up the cross training, rehab and strength over December.
See you on Wednesday! Details are on the google calendar which breaks down a nice easy progression and our last night on the greenway for a while.
