CVRR Tuesday Training Summer Sessions

CVRR Tuesday Training Sessions -June 2nd- Aug 18, 2020

Welcome CVRR runners to the summer training sessions. The focus will be on building strength endurance mixed in with speedwork to keep those legs moving. We can build a stronger, more injury resistant body with strength endurance training which then allows us to handle the faster running. Above all, be patient, do not force the running but take your time and hurry slowly! Please be warmed-up and ready to go by 5:10 pm. Also please remember to socially distance yourself from others when at these session by at least 2 metres apart.
