The night was an absolute blast. Although there were only 5 runners this evening, many more will join us over the coming days. What I enjoyed most about the evening is the variety of running experiences and the the goals that each wants to achieve. The variety is great and is enjoyable to coach as I can not take a canned approach to the plan or it will fail for most. As it was a learn to run, we did short runs of 2.5 k and another of 6k. The 6k was with a man who has done many marathons and is out to maintain fitness for an upcing trip to France to cycle. It was a great tempo run. As he said to me half way through, what do you call 2 guys running together, A RACE. We were running 4:45-4:30 km pace. I loved it. It is great to run with others to push you along your limits. As we circled along we joined back up with the rest of the group and had a chance to run with them for a while as well. It was a great night, for some it was the first time ever running which they totally enjoyed, for others it was a re-intro and the start towards a new goal. Being a part of someone setting out to me is a privilege so tonight was a blast!
A very short post tonight as I have some organizing to do for the course that I am running tomorrow. I am out to examine a group of ski instructors who are coming out to try the exam for the first time. Over the next four days ideally I can help new young instructors develop a passion for the sport of skiing and share with the future!
Hope your day was awesome! See you later! Cheers!
