RaceTeam - You did it!
RaceTeam queenstown done.
Queenstown really put on a show for us on Saturday, it was spectacular. The conditions were perfect as you took on your final challenge. After 10 weeks of preparation you took this challenge head on, worked through each session, each week, overcame mental challenges as well as the physical challenge.
You have worked together towards your own goals and should be really proud of yourselves. We hope you enjoyed your RaceTeam Queenstown experience ;o)
Rest, Recover, Reset
Often after a goal is reached like this we come down from the "post race high" and can feel a little flat. This is normal!
Make sure you give yourself a week of recovery but don't leave it too long after that to get back into a running routine. While you are out there enjoying some nice easy runs, think about what your next goal might be.
Reflect on the last 10 weeks - what did you do well? what would you improve on next time? Most importantly - be proud of yourself. You have dedicated the last 10 weeks to this, you have given so much time and energy into training and so enjoy what you have achieved - we are very very proud of every single one of you.
If you would like to keep running with Extra Mile Runners, there are a couple of options:
3 weeks of Club10k
This RaceTeam was the final one for 2017. We have had a couple of you ask if you can join in with the current Club10k team for the final weeks of this year - and so yes! We would love to see you back!
For those of you doing Queenstown, we recommend you have a week off following your race, you ned to give your body a chance to recover. You can then join Club10k the week beginning 27 November for the final 3 weeks of the programme.
RACETEAM WANAKA 2018
The first RaceTeam for 2018 begins the week starting 15 January 2018 and we are training for the Southern Lakes Half Marathon in Wanaka on Saturday 24 March.
Registrations are open now (registering early is a great way to keep yourself on track over Christmas and New Year ;o))
To keep in the loop with the group and get 1 group session in a week, Saturday Runners is a good option. Saturday Runners is our regular Saturday morning group run. You can buy 5 or 10 sessions and come when you can! All the details are here: Saturday Runners
