Good Monday morning, friends!
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
I was definitely a bit slow-moving on Sunday after having an awesome time at Winefest with Jen on Saturday. I thought I did a good job at drinking enough water, but my headache on Sunday morning told me otherwise.
Instead of sharing my workouts from last week, I’m sharing my tentative running schedule for the upcoming year and I’ll be back on Friday with my weekly recap and some downloadable training plans for everyone. Don’t forget, if you have a race coming up and are looking to work with a coach either one-on-one or have a custom plan designed, check out what I have to offer or shoot me an email.
If you’re looking for a great way to find races in your area, I highly recommend checking out Run Guides for your city.
Some of the events I haven’t listed the race distance, but that’s because I’m not really sure the distance I’ll feel like running on race day. There are two 30km events in Calgary this year, one in April which might be a big aggressive, and one in September, which I’m really hoping to run.
March 13 (spectator) – St Patrick’s Day Road Race <– one of my runners is running the 10k and Ashley is running the 5k, so I’ll be out cheering on the runners (and drinking coffee!)
March 19 (tentative) – Run for L’Arche 5 miler
April 9 – MEC Race 2
April 30 (tentative) – Eyeball the Wall
May 14 – 5 Peaks Race One
May 15 – Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women (see last year’s recap)
May 29 – Calgary Marathon Half Marathon
June 11 – 5 Peaks Race Two
June 18 – Millarville Half Marathon <– I’ll be running this with my mom!!
July 1 – Spruce Meadows Heroes Behind the Heroes <– I’m so excited to wear my Canada skirt again this year!!
July 10 (tentative) – Stampede Road Race
July 16 – 5 Peaks Race Three
August 6 – 5 Peaks Race Four
August 6 – Calgary Night Race <– this was such a fun race last year!
August 13 – SeaWheeze Half Marathon (see last year’s recap)
September 17 – 5 Peaks Race Five
September 24 – MEC Race Six
October 9 – Victoria Half Marathon (see last year’s recap)
October 22 – Spruce Meadows Oktoberfest Run (see last year’s recap)
December 9 – Spruce Meadows Dashing Through the Glow (see last year’s recap)
I’m super excited that I was asked back as an ambassador for the 2016 Spruce Meadows Race Series events. If you’ve subscribed to emails, you’ll notice some changes from last year: 4 races instead of 6, and no more parking fees! These events were some of my favourite in 2015, so I hope you’ll join me for them in 2016!
I’m also hoping to get out and run on the trails more in 2016. MEC and 5 Peaks races tend to fall on the same day for a lot of the 2016 events, so while I’ve scheduled in the 5 Peaks events, I’ll be looking at my training and how I’m feeling before I register.
I had a really aggressive race schedule in 2015 and I feel like that probably wasn’t the best way to approach my racing, so I’m working on a more cautious approach for this year.
