Its a belief that true success, true potential, true peak performance all arise from one point: true health. Therefore the pursuit and purpose of training is to acquire the healthiest body, mind, and spirit, as these are the prerequisites for any true pinnacle experience. This is achieved by focusing on skill acquisition, learning and refining of technique, developing an acute awareness of where, how, and why the body moves, to the point that the athlete can execute skills, tactics, and strategies on demand even in stressful environments. The result: athletes live out their fullest potential in sport, and in life beyond sport.


By learning how to initiate all movements move from one central point – the core – allows an athlete to train for all sports simultaneously, and allows the athlete to transfer power efficiently throughout their body minimizing stress, strain, and risks of injury and illness. The result of this type of training: athletes develop a degree of efficacy that allows them to outperform in any one sport, in all three sports, and to transition between each sport effortlessly.

MEC Burlington Race #5 – Confederation Park

We use the MEC Confederation Park events (races #2 and #5 in the series) as test events. Since #2 is in May, its a way to see what the winter of dryland and indoor drills has yielded, and race #5 in October is a great way to plan training for the coming winter.

Results this morning were fantastic! Everyone in the family set a pb [personal best]. The stand out was Serena who on top of placing 3rd female overall, set an almost 2min pb (Serena ran 22:53 on this course in May). Aimee was next with an almost full minute pb (Aimee ran 23:04 in May). Mark took 3rd overall male with a new pb, and dad brought up the back of the pack with a 4second pb on this course.

Speed River Timing Results for MEC #5

Weather conditions were ideal with temperatures in the single digits, minimal wind, and thankfully none of the swarms of gnats that sometimes line the water front. Next up… the last race in the series at Crawford Lake next month. Its a great event to stick your toe into some off road/trail running.

High School Cross-Country Running – pre OFSAA
@Christie Lake Conservation Area   Oct 3rd, 2018

Christie Lake Conservation Area

With more than half of our Junior Masters running on their HS xcountry teams, a link to the recent meet at Christie Lake seems appropriate. Cross country training and racing is an amazing way to make fall and early winter running fun. Jump in the car and head up to one of the Halton Conservation areas, or down into Dundas to the rail trail and you will be amazed at how awesome it is to run when the temperature drops. Congrats to all our high schoolers, especially those who are running cross country for the first time.

Kelso CycloCross Race Series

Just when you think the race season is over… Cyclocross season starts up. When the nights get shorter, the temperature drops, the weather turns wet and windy, you know its time for Cyclocross. Tuesday evenings at Kelso Conservation Area, on the the lower portion of the Glen Eden ski slopes, they turn on the lights so that the race series can run til the end of October. This year, Gabe and Carolina are extending their cycling race seasons competing in the series. A few of us may do a drop in race or two, but with swimming starting sooner this season on Tuesday nights… someone has to be on deck at the pool. Looking forward to following the results. Enjoy!
