Happy Birthday to Lisa, Trudi & belated to Pam :)
This week we focus on redefining goals for the final four weeks of the clinic. Take a moment to remember where you started. What have you learned? What have you gained or have you slacked off? Maybe you worked through some set backs or are still coming back from a set back. Are you feeling jazzed to wrap up strong?
When you look back at the next four weeks, how do you want to feel?
Redefining your goals for the final four. Let's get to the heart of how you want to feel and then get after it!! CLICK HERE.

Please RSVP for Wednesdays run before Tuesday at 7pm so we can plan accordingly. Thanks!
I scheduled the speed workout on Tuesday this week because we're in REST week and the group run is in a rather hilly location the following day.
The workout is 10 cycles of 30sec hard and 30sec easy, sandwiched between a 20min warm up and cool down. It's best performed on flat terrain. It's such a fun one!
Remember though - if you feel like you need more rest, replace it with a 30-45min easy run.
Group run at Lebanon Creek. Details TBA once RSVP is complete. We will either lead small groups or flag a lollipop route for people to run at their own pace and with folks within their bubbles.
Ahhh... it's a breezy looking weekend :) Groups run 75min to 90min MAX. Go easy, stay steady and have fun. Remember this week as you reduce your volumes, intensity and embrace more rest - you're getting stronger.
EARN YOUR CHECKMARKS
Complete the Wednesday and Sunday workouts for two checkmarks. Do you best and modify if necessary but try. Just getting out the door earns you two checkmarks regardless of how it looks or goes.
If you want to earn two bonus checkmarks - post a photo of your workout to social media with the following hashtags this week:#earnyourcheckmark #pacetrailruns #thefinalfour #rememberwhereyoustarted
Happy Birthday to Kristie Dodds & Jennifer Goodwin!! xo
T-SHIRTS / PRIZE PICK UP
Arrive EARLY this Wednesday to pick up your clinic t-shirt and any prizes you may have won this clinic. You can pick up your items between 5:30pm and 5:50pm at the start of the run.
This week I talk about pressure vrs having fun and what can we do if start to take things too seriously or overthink some things too much. I also discuss the contrast to anyone who perhaps uses pressure as an excuse and holds back.
Review uphill technique / tips:
Back to back thirds challenge this weekend!

It's suppose to be another hot one, so please ensure you're prepared with extra fluid. You can review the tips I put out on hot weather running HERE.

P.A.C.E. GROUP RUN COVID-19 PROTOCOLS
Please review our COVID-19 protocols before the group run tomorrow:
Last week I updated the training plans online to accommodate the changes to the group run dates. I updated the 25km roll-over plan tonight as there was an error on the schedule for this week, so please be sure you're up-to-date by clicking HERE.
Those of you not able to join us tomorrow, I hope you get out there for a fun run and I can't wait to see your homegrown hashtags this week!
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Last week we talked about how important consistency is when it comes to moving your fitness forward and how it helps #closethegap between where you are today and where you are heading.
This week I dive into a story called The Heavy Load and talk about how carrying past mistakes, failure, fears or negativity or self judgement doesn’t serve us and that we need to learn to let go so we can make space for new experiences and successes.
We will use the hashtag #TheTravellingMonks to remind everyone to let go of things that don't serve us anymore and that every day is a new day to do your best and feel good.
Review the importance of having a proper rest strategy from last week and to take 5 minutes, and read the section on goal setting to help you get focused on the next four weeks.
If you don't have a recovery routine in place for when you finish your long runs or key workouts or races, you're probably not maximizing your potential. Click HERE to learn more.

WEEK 5 HASHTAGS
This week we have a fun speed workout with shorter intervals. Try to choose flat to flatfish terrain and make sure you have a nice easy warm up and cold down.
You have the option to perform your strides before your workout or after your workout and before your cool-down this week.
Use the warm up to assess how you feel and to focus on the workout ahead. Think about what your workout goals are, how you want to feel when you look back at the end of your session and use this week's quote to help #risetotheoccasion
A THOUGHT IS JUST A THOUGHT AND IT CAN BE CHANGED
The cool down should feel easy, with the goal of keeping it steady.
This weekend's run is all about going the distance again. Team up with a buddy or plan a fun route that will help keep you motivated to stick to the duration. Don't forget to use Strava to upload a GPX file to your watch or the TrailForks app to help with route ideas.
Time on your feet is more important that pace in the long run. Aim to run steady and practice your fueling!
