Winter Running Program with Critical Speed

Hi Avid Winter Runners

This 2018-2019 season CriticalSpeed and Strides Running Store is offering a specific run program to address off season speed, strength and overall volume. The program details are below.

*Please share to runners who might be looking for a social structured program to stay in shape over the winter. I only have 10 spots in this program due to track space.


Tuesday TRACK Session at Mount Royal University from 7:45-9pm. Short Distance Intervals with conditioning (8-9pm Booking). 

Thursday TRACK Session at Mount Royal University from 6:45-8pm.  Mid Distance Intervals with conditioning (7-8pm Booking). 

Saturday Distance Run: Long run together at 9am meeting at Eau Claire Y or Long Run Intervals at the Olympic Oval. All athletes needs to pay the  Oval drop in rate. 

Sunday BONUS Activities: Access to Mountain Royal University during BRICK session to run and basic conditioning (15.00 facility drop in savings) and Vertical Gain Snowshoes (once per month). 

Cost: 175.00 plus gst per month. (Strides Clinic and Club Runners Receive a 15% Discount) 

Start Date:  November 2018

Parking at MRU: No cost in the residential area (short 5’ walk). 

MRU TRACK SESSION: You will gain access to the facility 15’ before booking. Arrive early and start warming up. Ideally we begin the main running sets after proper warm up, transition pre main set 200s then main set. Body conditioning will be scheduled within the track session and at the end. 

If you have any questions or would like to sign up for this program, please contact Cal at

Also please share this to anyone who might be interested. 

Running in a group is much more enjoyable and typically yields more consistent and better quality sessions!
