This is week 41 in our yearly training plan. 
I am very proud of all the racing that I saw at Eastern's this year. I received many great comments about you all this week. You did yourselves and the club very proud. Remember that when you are looking at results you want to look at your percentage of the leaders not just the placing that you finished. It is also how well you  held to your plan. There is no greater feeling than creating a plan and executing that plan. Always remember there is good things that you have done and things to be improved, this is a process that will go throughout your life. You have good days and bad days and you always seek to improve.

Thursday we are going to be doing a trial run out our sprint race. You will need to sign up on zone4 as we are wanting to create the start list before hand, if you are not signed up you will not be able to race, registration closes at 2pm in the afternoon. We are trying as best we can to simulate our sprint race for February 14th.  Here is the link. www.zone4.ca/reg.asp?id=6442

For the Gatineau Loppet I suggest that you do one distance race for your category. You can do two races if you wish just make sure that the other race is a short race as we are racing in Orford the week end after.  If you want to do only one race than do a distance race. 
Here is the schedule of races:

  • Friday, February 14th: Registration starting at 5pm
  • Saturday, February 15th: Classic Style day with the 5, 15, 27 et 51 km races
  • Sunday, February 16th : Freestyle day with the Mini Sport Échange Outaouais, and the 10, 27 and 51 km races and the Snowshoes races of 2.5, 5 and 10 km.
So for:

Junior girls I suggest one of the 15km classic or the 10km skate and one of the shorter races if you are wanting to do two races. You can also take on one of the 27km races if you wish but only do one race if this is your choice. 
Junior B and A boys: one of the 27km races, since this is your first 27 km race I suggest only one race this week end so you have enough time to recover for Orford. 
Juveniles the 5km classic and 10km skate  or the 15km classic, do the 5 and 10 if you are wanting to do both races.
