Monday Nights Swim Program, 9PM to 10PM, 20-October thru 22-December 2014

Our coached swim program appeals to runners who want to swim for fitness and cross training. We also have a number of athletes who participate in triathlons ranging from sprint to Ironman distances. All the athletes, regardless of their goals, have been thrilled by the gains they’ve made. This program is geared towards all levels, from novice to experienced swimmer. Workouts improve both technique and endurance that will assist you in improving your strength and efficiency in the water. They also provide a useful cross training opportunity for those weeks when the weather outside makes you not feel like running outside.

A few Cochrane runners in the Canmore Half and 5K last weekend. Good results in the various age groups a second and a fourth, so who says hill training does not work?

Dino Dash Results  

Posted by Pete McBreen Sun, 07 Sep 2014 04:40:29 GMT

Jim won his age group in the 5K and Sierra beat a guy seven times her age. In the 10K Ken Skea did 40:09, Neil did 43:48 and Marathon Martin was the surprise of the day with 44:56 – so it does help to do the long runs.
