We finished up our nationals week today with a running time trial. The J2 boys and all of the girls ran 13 km, while the older boys ran 18 km. Mollie, Alex, Calvin and Jack are fighting colds and so they worked on classic technique.
We don’t have too many pictures, but you can get an idea for the day..clear and cool. Below, Gino finishes bare chested while Sverre cheers in a parka (notice the snow in the shade of the bush).
For the 3 older boys who ran, both Gino and Hamish set PR’s. This was especially impressive because the first 8 kms was a narrow snow covered trail.
Here are their times:
The younger boys and the girls ran an out and back with the return slightly uphill:
Koby 27:42 55:59
Scott 26:50 56:53
Katharine 30:13 61:49
Tegan 30:13 61:49
Kate 30:38 63:34
Tess 31:04 64:29
Pippin 31:42 66:09
Mackenzie 33:24 69:13
Ana 33:25 69:26
Great job by everyone! Now we review to see how each person felt throughout the week. Hopefully this will help us be able to make good individual plans for each athlete when they head off for a race series.
