Another beautiful start to the week...look at that fantastic sunshine!
I just wanted to check in and just say HI to all of my blog readers:) Thanks so much for taking the time to read my posts and leave your comments on my updates-.
The good news this week is that I am back on my bike pain free as the tendonitis has finally gone away...hurray! I went for a few easy rides and was able to push myself more and more as the week went on and the inflammation finally cleared up. This week I am ready to rock!
In addition to the rides we had 2 great clinic runs: Thursday night Adventure Running http://www.elmhealth.com/running_clinics.html#AdventureRunning experienced Orienteering for the first time and kicked but on the O course in Nymph Falls Park http://www.rdcs.bc.ca/uploadedFiles/Parks/Park_Information/NymphFallsNature.pdf! Here is a copy of the original O map for the area: http://www.orienteeringbc.ca/vico/
Sunday morning 1/2 marathon clinic got an easy day with the final run of the clinic- 8km taper run at Comox Lake Dam. It flew by and we even had time to go for breaky at the Atlas cause we weren't running 23kms this week!
Next week is the Log Train Trail Race in Port Alberni http://www.arrowsmithradicalrunners.com/. There are 3 distances all on railway grade trails: 10km, 1/2 and full marathon events all start at 8am next Sunday. This is one of the best little trail races on Vancouver Island!
Congrats to Chris W for his steller PB time at his 1/2 marathon race across the border this weekend! And congrats to all those who took part in the XTC on Sunday in Campbell River!
Finally, Saturday I had a great time teaching MOMAR 101 http://www.elmhealth.com/multisport.html#MOMAR101#MOMAR101 to a new crew of adventure racers out at Comox Lake Dam. The weather even co-operated and we had a great time 'playing' at the dam.
Looks like another fantastic week of summer weather so be sure to get outside and 'geterdone'!
