Great job to all involved with the Junior / Juvenile camp & Quebec team camp this past week & weekend! 
This week we have a higher focus on intensity. We are also doing an intro to plyo's session at the range on Wednesday. This means there is no gym practice. The plyo session is our strength on Wednesday.

On Sunday we are starting at 8AM to be able to get a longer intensity session done before the parkways open at 11.

Hi Team!
We have an awesome week ahead of us. There are over 50 racers from around Quebec and
Ontario training in the Gatineau Park this week. Both the Quebec and Thunderbay National
Training centres are here to both get a lot of training done and to mentor awesome athletes
such as yourselves. 

For some of the older crew who has been invited to some day trainings during the week,
please see my emails for details. 

We are also hosting the Quebec juvenile camp this weekend! Busy busy.

Hi Team,

Good efforts from everyone over this last training block!
This week is your rest week. It is also our club's scheduled holiday week.
There will be no official training this week, HOWEVER; remember you all have 
training plans that you should be following. Your coaches highly encourage
you to get together with your teammates to accomplish your recovery hours
this week!

Remember, the goal of a recovery week is to make sure you feel rested,
strong and fuelled to start the next block of training. Eat lots of yummy food, 
be responsible with your sleep and physically take care of your bodies (stretch!!!)

Take care and we will see you all back on Tuesday August 7th.
