Midweek Report

Training has been a little more consistent this past week:

Fri - 10 miles
Sat- barefoot strength training circuit
Sun - easy 3
Mon- hike 3-4
Tues- 4 tempo
Weds - strength training & watch space shuttle Endeavor land after a marathon mission at the International Space Station.

This Saturday will be very busy:

Morning - I will be bringing my massage table and a biofoam roll to the MDRA 7 Mile to offer free PNF stretching and teach self myofascial release to the runners who participate. I've been doing this for several years as a way of giving back to the club, so stop over and say "Hi" and get stretched out before or after the race if you feel like it. The race is free for MDRA members!

Afternoon - Time for the annual orienteering skills clinic at Hyland Lake park in Bloomington from noon 'til 3 pm! Opportunities will be available for all abilities, including learning how to use a compass and read a topo map, pace counting, a few different courses of varying lengths and difficulties, adventure racing skills, etc. If you think running on trails is fun and dirty, here's your chance to try "cunning running" off trail! You'll also get a topo map of Hyland Lake park, like the one that I drew last years Trail Mix course on:

2007 Trail Mix course

MNOC also sells topo maps of other popular trail running spots, such as Afton, Murphy-Hanrehan, Lebanon Hills, Nerstrand, Jay Cooke, Wirth Park, Telemark, etc.
