Training Week of Feb 21
It has been a great week to be a coach for such a great bunch of athletes. Excellent effort all around with some great achievements at the Gatineau Loppet and OFSSA qualifying; appreciating that it is 90% athlete, and 10% coaching.
Tuesday Feb 22nd 6:30-8:00 (+/-): With recent weather patterns the life of the canal as a skateway may be limited. Meet at change shacks at 5th Avenue near Lansdowne. Bring skates. Check e-mails tomorrow, I will see if I can find some long blades for anyone that wants to try them.
Thursday Feb 24th 6:30-8:00: Nakkertok. The training field is not so good, and the trails are rock hard. We will meet at Nakkertok South to ski the courses for Saturday’s Races, but check your e-mails in the afteroon for confirmation.
Saturday Feb 26 morning: Nakkertok Juniors. It would be nice to have most of the Racers out as a team. This may be our last opportunity. The cost is reasonable and it is a fun race that does not take much of the day. Registration deadline is Wednesday on Zone 4.
Saturday Feb 26 afternoon: Katie and I have helped with the “Dynarabbits at Riverfront from time to time this season. It would be nice to have a few Racers out as company, and you can get some volunteer time.
