The Wild Runners March Catch Up
Hi Wild Runners,
With the summer running away from us, however slowly, the cooler weather will start making for great running conditions. This is perfect for those training for some of the longer events such as the Bufallo Stampeed, The North Face 100, the Coastal High 50and the Blackall 100 where training runs being to go longer into the midday heat.
As the days shorten and become cooler, we get to see some beautiful sunrises during our sessions. This also means we get to do a bit of low light trail running so don’t forget to bring a head torch to both morning and evening training sessions.
Don’t let the lack of sun deter you from turning up though, running with a headlight is AWESOME fun and an important skill to master. We have a set of headlights which we can lend you until you realise how much you love it and buy your own!
Mountain Goat – Change of location
During March our Mountain Goat session, where we train to increase our running strength, ascending skills and descending speed has been meeting at Channel 9 to squeeze in a few new tracks. If you haven’t tried this session out, the cooler months are a great time to try the hills out and push your trail running to the next level. We are returning to our regular meeting point at J.C Slaughter Falls again through April.
Are you looking for somewhere to run over the long weekend? Our Friday morningToohey Forest and Monday morning Karawatha Forest training sessions are on as per usual. Don’t let public holidays get in the way of a good training session in a beautiful place!
Also, on Sunday, a Wild Runners contingent will be heading to the Wild Horse Criteriumin preparation for the North Face 100 happening in just under 7 weeks time. This isn’t just a race for ultra runners though. There are plenty of distances to choose from between 11km and 80km and the races are run by the fantastic guys at Run Queensland. Why not give it a go?
If you are still holding out for the right time to run, this Wednesday drop into Lululemon Indooroopilly where I’ll be giving a run work shop on trail running. It’s free to attend, will give you the low down on trail running and the opportunity to ask me as many questions as you like.
Last up, it has been fantastic seeing so many Wild Runners T-Shirts out there on the trails. If you are one of the gents, you won’t have much longer to wait until the male singlets are ready to hit the tracks too 🙂 Express your interest and size here to get in first.
It’s been really amazing to see the progression of people training with Wild Runners over the last few months. Keep up the great work and when you get tired remember the key to getting to the end is holding great form.
Happy running, Wild Runners.
