Last night was the last Wednesday PACE session of 2013 and I have to say it was AWESOME! There was a festive vibe because the house down the street had TONS of Christmas lights and was playing music as people ran by. There was a calm, yet super strong energy out and I was really proud of everyone as they did their repeats because this was a "no slackers" workout. There were two hills athletes had to climb, with our focus tonight being on strength endurance, technique and leg turn over. It was a continuous run with some downhill and flats as recovery. A bit of road and a bit of trail mixed together. I was really impressed with the determination and effort put forward. Not to mention everyone ran happy and was smiling. I just felt grateful. Grounded and well, just plain happy!
What a way to end the Wednesdays with street music and amazing people all around. Standing out there coaching in my down jacket was the best part of my day yesterday :)
Don't forget we have one last run of the clinic. 8am from Cara Glen Way, off Clifton Road. If people want to go for breakfast together afterwards, I will scout out a place nearby. Groups will finish at different times but we can all eventually meet up for a bite to eat and cheer before the holidays for those who want to.
