Wow, Spring certainly took it’s time getting here this year. Did you know that last year at this time we were already outdoors on road bikes?!!

With the warmer and above average temperatures of the last couple of days, it feels like we have turned a corner and can start to look forward to outdoor workouts soon…ish.

The workout calendar has been updated to reflect our current plans for the spring and I’ll list a few key dates below. The basics are that we have secured indoor facilities until Wednesday April 6th. Regular workouts (Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday) will continue up to and including April 6th.

There will be no scheduled workouts the weekends of April 9 and 10, and April 16, 17

Plan is to begin outdoor workouts on Tuesday April 12th.

Outdoor workout Schedule: (Beginning April 12th)

-Tuesday: 6pm at St. James Collegiate Track: Running Workout

-Wednesday: 6pm beginning at Assiniboine Park Duck Pond: Bike Intervals workout

-Saturday: 8am Group Long Bike Ride: Endurance Pace. Starting at Assiniboine Park Duck Pond.

-Sunday: 8:30am: Endurance Long Run from Assiniboine Park Duck Pond Shelter

Considerations going forward:

-Please ensure you’re registered for the PPT What’s App Group for workout updates and last minute changes if conditions are questionable or meeting locations have changed. Patrick can help with this.

-Triathlon Manitoba has released their race calendar for the season. The April Run Series begins the first weekend of the Month…Don’t miss registration! 5km, 10km and 15km on three weekends…or 5k,5k,5k!

-Check your bike!! Make sure your bike is in good working order to get outdoors and ride with a group, or to enjoy the long rides. If you’re not sure what your bike might need, or what you should bring or how you should dress, please speak with one of the coaches at a workout while we’re still indoors and we’ll be glad to help you out or point you in the right direction.

*No Workout on Easter Weekend (Saturday April 16th and Sunday April 17th).

*We are planning for our Traditional Good Friday Bridge to Nowhere Ride. Details as we get closer to the Date (April 15th). Weather and road condition dependent.
