Week beginning 22-September

Just 11 weeks to the start of the indoor racing season – UofC Athletics still has details from last year’s races but we are starting training for indoor races now.

Tuesday 23-September – Fun Training Group will meet at 6:30 at Tim Horton’s off Highway 22, running up the grass hill for power, so usual drills and fun on the hill.

Wednesday 24-September – easy run from Trailblazers, start at 6:30PM – will run at pace of slowest person who shows up. Note change of location, with the cooler weather we have had to move back to Trailblazers.

Thursday 25-September – meet 6:30 at Bow Valley High School (in the Riversong community) – at track – 10 x 300m, 1 minute jog recovery, aiming for 5K pace or faster.

Saturday 27-September – meet 8:30AM, long run from Coffee Traders, 10 to 20K depending on how far you want to go.

Sunday 28-September – meet 8:45 at Coffee Traders for an easy 5K to 15K – there will be opportunities to turn around early if you do not want the full distance. Planning on a trail run in Cochrane Ranche and beyond, so bring trail shoes Sunday.

The Town of Cochrane had closed some parks and paths but they are now reopen. There may still be some fallen branches so watch out on the narrow paths and trails.

Canmore Half and 5K results

A few Cochrane runners in the Canmore Half and 5K last weekend. Good results in the various age groups a second and a fourth, so who says hill training does not work?

Dino Dash Results

Jim won his age group in the 5K and Sierra beat a guy seven times her age. In the 10K Ken Skea did 40:09, Neil did 43:48 and Marathon Martin was the surprise of the day with 44:56 – so it does help to do the long runs.

Photos from Pete and Bethan are now uploaded

Interesting subtitled documentary on running form – amazing that some of the drills used in the video are still common practice.
