Those of you that braved the winter weather last week already know that our training hats have arrived. If you registered for the program before January 1st, you are entitled to a Training Studio coolmax hat. We plan to distribute the remining hats this weekend. Shirts are also being printed as we speak and should be ready in two weeks.
I know the weather these past few weeks has been very sketchy at best, but do your best to get outside at least once each week. Treadmill training is good in a pinch, but should not be used as the only running surface.
Now, back to our recent inclement weather. As you may or may not know, we do have an inclement weather policy for the group training. If we feel that the weather circumstances will in anyway jeopardize the safety of our participants, we will not hesitate to cancel. With that being said, usually, excessive icy conditions or lightning tend to be the only reasons for us to cancel. Snowfall is not a problem as long as ice doesn’t accompany. OUR INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY ASKS YOU AS A PARTICIPANT TO CALL THE TRAINING STUDIO PHONE NUMBER (893-4024) ONE HOUR BEFORE THE REGULARLY SCHEDULED DEPARTURE TIME TO SEE IF WE ARE MEETING. WE WILL LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THE MACHINE WITH THE GROUP STATUS. PLEASE DO NOT CALL EARLIER BECAUSE WE ARE STILL EITHER TRYING TO GET THERE OURSELVES OR ARE OUT ON THE COURSE STILL EVALUATING CONDITIONS.
I have also decided to post links here at the end of every blog entry for quick access to the schedules & schedule guidelines. Here is the link to our half marathon schedules, marathon schedules & schedule guidelines.
Here is the training route for this week. Hope to see everyone Saturday.
