After a few years absence, I will be hosting the FREE Around the Bay training clinic in 2020.
Instead of running Friday evenings, we are switching to Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM
The weekly clinics are geared towards the first time Bay runner but we welcome runners of all abilities who wish to improve upon their times with training focused on the Northshore hills section of the Around the Bay course.
We run every Sunday morning out of the LaSalle Park parking lot in Burlington, leaving at 9:00 AM sharp!

Well, it looks like we won’t find out if we get to run the “Valley Inn” hill until just before the race.
CBC reported in December that due to work on the CN rail bridge, race organizers won’t know if the road will be open until a week or so before the race.
So much doing any training on Valley Inn Road hill this year.
Update: I’ve checked Valley Inn Road, so don’t even bother trying. The whole hill is fenced off from the end of the bailey bridge at the bottom to the barricades at the top. I guess we’ll all have to make do with just running all the Northshore hills over and over again.
For more information find the Around The Bay group training sessions, you’ll find it off the Training menu or just follow the link to get the the information and maps for each week’s run.
Since shin splints can happen when your calf muscles become stronger than the shin muscles, one way to prevent shin splints in the first place is to do some strengthening exercises. Heel walks are beneficial, but here’s a simple move you can do while at your desk.
