Based on the ongoing success of our spring virtual clinic, this summer our trail running clinic will also be primarily build upon our virtual platform, however we will be following the guidelines of BC's Restart Plan.
Normally our summer clinic hosts group runs 1x per week, on Wednesday where we have 6 speed sessions and 6 endurance runs up to 2-2.5hrs. This is because the summer is usually such a busy time with travel, vacation, visitors and more. Due to the restrictions around COVID-19, we feel adapting the summer clinic will be far more valuable to our athletes and community as we all look for ways to stay active, stay in touch and stay positive this summer. Therefore, the virtual summer clinic will run very similarly to the virtual spring clinic with some enhancements and a plan to gather for some small group runs throughout the 12 week program.
The PACE team is excited to stay in touch with our community, motivate athletes to reach their goals, stay active and motivated going into September. We are also really looking forward to some of the enhancements that Phase II of BC's Restart Plan allows us to introduce and we will continue to monitor all updates, modify and hopefully continue to expand our clinic options as we go.
SUMMER CLINIC OUTLINE - performance section with exercises and workouts to help reduce injury and increase strength. New exercises will be uploaded as the clinic progresses. - virtual coaching section with 2x weekly videos from Coach R to provide workout details, focus, motivation and help apply purpose and fun into the training every week. - online training plans to choose from. High volume plans for those who want to continue to increase or maintain their training volumes for summer/fall events or adventures and low volume plans for those who want to stay motivated, active, healthy and push their fitness without investing huge amounts of training time every week. I will also have training plans for anyone who is bumping up distances from the spring clinic. 15k to 25k & 25k to 50k. - live yoga classes, breath workshops, happy hours, zoom calls to meet your fellow runners and stay in touch etc. - accountability challenge that is broken down into 4 week increments. Coach R will announce weekly challenges and when you accomplish them, you earn bonus checkmarks, which give you more chances to win prizes throughout the clinic. - 3-5x small group runs spaced out throughout the clinic. These runs will be 90min to 2hrs in duration. Each group is assigned a PACE leader and there will be 4-6 different locations to help prevent large group gatherings. These runs will take place on some Sunday mornings and some Wednesday evenings. - clear rules/guidelines put in place to ensure the safety and healthy of our participants, team and community during any small group runs. - locally designed summer PACE TRAIL RUNS T-SHIRT designed by local artist Mercedes Minck.
All runners must have a long run base of 2hrs as a prerequisite for the summer clinic.
You don't have to be from the area to participate in our virtual clinic. Out of town athletes, can benefit from our all aspects of our virtual platform, however won't be able to participate in the 3-5 small group runs. These group runs are pending the continued positive progress of BC's Restart Plan :)
