The Louisville Triple Crown of racing is quickly approaching. I just wanted to make sure that everyone understands that we do not cover the cost of any races. Registration for these races is completely up to you. We also do not meet as a group in St. Matthews when a race is one the schedule. We will however try to schedule a group meeting place at the race so you can catch up with your teammates. One more thing, team shirts. We would love for everyone to show their support of our program by wearing our team shirt during the race. If it is a little cold, just put a long sleeve shirt underneath. We expect the shirts to arrive this week ready for distribution Saturday. If you cannot make it to the group run this weekend, please make other arrangements to stop by and pick it up.
We heading towards the Norbourne Estates area and taking Old Cannons lane into Park Hills. Click HERE to view the interactive route. Feel free to utilize the interactive tools on the left side of the map to zoom in a little for more details. Remember to stay at a very easy conversational pace for these long runs. Save the faster runs for during the week. Pay some extra attention to Page 2 of the Training Schedules for a description of the specific pacing recommendations. Don’t forget, we plan to start running promptly at 7:30am, so please arrive 10-15 minutes early to take care of any last minute bathroom breaks.
Here are a few tips and tidbits to help you become familiar with our program.
- Study Up: Our sponsors have put together what we believe to be the most comprehensive Online Running Manual available. All of your running/walking questions can be answered in this manual. Use the link above to start enjoying this valuable resource.
- The weekly blog is now posted on the “Home” page of our website. Scroll down a little to see it directly below the “Get Fit” blog. This window will show you the last three entries. We plan to post an entry into the 2014 Run/Walk blog every week with a map, special instructions and friendly reminders. This will be our primary means of communication. We will send weekly emails out on Monday of each week with a direct link to the blog. You will also see a Facebook entry each week. (One more reason to LIKE The Training Studio on FACEBOOK)
- One last thing, keep in mind that this group is a service we provide to help promote the fine sport of running. Myself, Stacey, the sponsors and all of your pace group leaders are here to help make your running experience enjoyable. We are happy to address and help with basic questions or concerns, but this is not a private coaching service. If you would like specific, individualized coaching please contact Dale for more information.
Don’t forget to acknowledge those sponsors that have made this program possible.
