First of all, I would like to just say how impressed I am with everyone's focus, participation and the quality

of training last week. In particular, I am thoroughly impressed with your distance workout yesterday. We had athletes

accomplish 25-45km depending on age. Very impressive. Let's keep this awesome momentum going!

This week is a rest week so the general volume of training is lower but the focus and quality should remain the same.

Some important notes

1) We no longer have a group practice on Wednesday. Please continue to go to the gym on your own and follow your

strength plan accordingly. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

2) Sign up for!

I cannot emphasize the importance of this enough.
Keeping track of your training is essential for both
celebrating improvements and preventing injury.

3) Saturday we will be doing a goal setting session. Please come prepared
with some goals in mind even if they aren't completely formulated yet.
