The track is where most of the M2M coaches first fell in love with the sport, and it was vital to their development as athletes. Many folks who get into the sport later in life mainly use the track as a training venue and have never had the opportunity to throw down in a proper track race. We started Chase the Pace to give our crew the opportunity to have a full-on 5,000m race effort on the track.

What is Chase the Pace?

Chase The Pace (CTP) is not your standard track meet. Most track meets are rather stale and quite honestly, somewhat boring. We try to do things differently with CTP. We want people to have a good time out there, so we have music, food, beer, and other cool stuff to help promote a fun environment.

The main thing about CTP, however, is the actual running. We want people to run their guts out and hopefully set a PB in the process. We help facilitate this in a few ways. First off, the event has the previously mentioned kick-ass vibe. We put people in heats with other runners of similar ability, because running with a group is always easier than having at it solo.

Pacers are the secret sauce

Racing is hard, you have a lot to think about, we don’t need you worrying about splits or pacing – that’s why we have pacers. They will take care of all of that for you. We have sections for all levels, from sub 16:00 to 27:30, no matter your ability, we will have a pace for you.

The track is the place to test your fitness

To be the best runner you can be you have to cover all your bases. There are the easy aerobic runs, tempo runs, long runs and speed work to be crushed. We often choose track as our surface of choice for speed work. The surface is flat, the distance is accurate and it is the most controlled environment we can get which makes it the perfect place for all-out efforts. The track is the place to find out exactly how fit you are.

The 5,000m is a great distance to test yourself

5,000m is a tricky distance – if you go out too fast you suffer. If you’re struggling at 2km, that’s a problem, but if you’re struggling at 3km you can usually stick it out. It’s all about staying strong and being focused and gauging your effort well. That’s why we have our pacers there to help.

Approaching the track as a first timer

Pacing for a first timer is a bit of trial and error. You can’t just step on a track and know what effort you can sustain for a prolonged period of time. Err on the side of caution if it is your first time. Go slow and keep the effort manageable. Now let’s apply this to a track workout, for example, 10x400m. Start at a pace that you know you can sustain, for example, 2minutes per lap. If you handle this well then you know that next time you can go harder, but if you go out too hard and only get in a few efforts before slowing down you don’t really know where you are at. The more time you spend on the track the better you will get at judging efforts. This will translate not only to your ability to pace track workouts, but also your judge of pace in general for all types of training.

Using racing to inform training paces

An all-out 5,000m effort such as CTP can be a big help to help set paces for future track sessions as it will give you a clear picture as to where your fitness currently is.

Getting ready to race

Before each M2M track session, we do a 2-3km warm-up, followed by a series of drills and strides. Warming up pre-race should look very similar to this. No need to change from what you are used to. Keep it consistent and familiar.

Make sure to cool-down after the race! This is a full-on effort, you are going to accumulate a lot of lactate in the muscles, even a slow 2km jog afterward will help to flush some of that junk and allow for quicker recovery. Then go have a beer.

Using racing on the track as a training tool

Racing can be an awesome training tool because in a race you can dig deeper, push harder and suffer harder than you can during a workout. And as a result, you will get both physically stronger, and mentally tougher.

Even if you are training for a marathon, a 5,000m has its benefits. It will increase your speed, bump your V02max, increase pain tolerance and help your running economy.

It is also short enough that it can fit seamlessly into your training plan- the recovery is often much quicker than other race distances, so you can get right back to normal training after a couple easy days. It is basically a hard ass speed work day.

For many of you, your goal race for the spring season is done and dusted. Whether the distance was 1 mile, the marathon, or something in between and no matter if you met, exceeded or came up a bit short of your goal, now is most definitely the time for a bit of rest and recovery.

We all need to respect the need for downtime. It’s as important to listen to your body now as it is when you are in the thick of training. At M2M we usually recommend you take a full week off from running after a marathon. You put your body through a lot of trauma out on the roads and trails. If you find you can’t sit still during this time off from running it’s okay to do some other low-impact or non-impact training. A return to full training should happen gradually over the next 2-3 weeks. Even if your goal race was shorter than the marathon you should still take a few rest days and a few weeks away from structured training.

Take some time for your mind

Too often we see athletes neglecting this aspect of recovery. It’s important that we respect the mental fatigue from a big training block and goal race. 2018 Boston Marathon Champ, Des Linden, said it best after this year’s race.

There is just no way you can stay focused and ‘on it’ day in and day out 52 weeks of the year without experiencing some mental burnout. So even if your body is feeling recovered, take some time off for your mind.

Coping with the post-marathon blues

Many athletes find the transition time between seasons very difficult. I can remember that time well – the post-marathon blues were something I often experienced during my career. You’re out of routine, eating like crap, drinking more than usual and your future goals are a bit unclear. And that is ok.

The transition period is definitely the time to indulge, spend more time with friends and family (that may have been a bit neglected when you were crushing all those miles prepping for your goal race), and do some non-running activities on your bucket list.  It is also a good time to try something new in training or racing. Sign-up for that trail race you’ve always wanted to do or start that strength training routine you’ve neglected for so long. Mixing it up a little should help you to get rolling again later this spring.

So what’s next?

If you haven’t planned out your racing schedule for the fall, now is a good time to do that too. Sit down with your coach, talk about your goals and make a plan to achieve them. This has always been something that helped me kick start my training again after a little downtime. Getting those goal races set in stone can help you visualize what the training will be like over the next few months.

Alrighty, let’s talk about the BMO Vancouver Marathon course. First things first, show up early and keep race day morning as stress-free as possible. The marathon is hard enough already, don’t do anything silly to make it harder on yourself.

We’ll start @ Queen Elizabeth park, the gun goes and we climb a little bit to get out of the park, then we turn left onto Cambie. The 1st km is a net uphill, and it is the 1st KM of 42, do not worry about what your watch says, just get off the line and get the body ready to go.

We’ll turn right on 49th @ about 2.5km, then there is a nice long straight shot for over 6km. Use this time to find your flow and settle in. This section has a really nice gentle downhill from 4km to 9km. It is awesome, don’t force anything here, just relax and roll.

At 9km we take that dreaded right turn on to Camosun. The bad news is that this hill is a tough, challenging 1200m climb. The good news is that it is early in the race. The hill will sting, but I promise you that you will recover and be fine once you hit the peak. Focus on maintaining effort on the hill, do not worry about pace.

After you get to the top of Camosun, it is pretty much smooth sailing. Just kidding. We’ll roll around UBC which is nice because the roads up there are wide and smooth, re-establish your rhythm and continue to focus. Take your gels and hit the water stations when you can.

Nearing half-way now

At 19km we hit a long ass downhill coming out of UBC and onto Spanish Banks. Do not try to hammer this hill to make up any lost time, that is a recipe for disaster as you risk destroying your quads. Float down the hill maintaining effort and trying to run smooth.

At the bottom of the hill we hit ½ way. Your legs will feel funny for a km or two, do not panic, that is normal. Focus on staying relaxed and continue to flow through the beaches.

There is a tricky little climb coming out of Jericho, but it is only 300m long and it’s followed by a nice gradual downhill.

We’ll roll through Kits down Point Grey road and Cornwall, the crowds here are great, so use them to fire ya up.

We gotta run across Burrard Street Bridge at 29km. Yeah, that will suck but there are great crowds on the Bridge and this is the last hard climb of the day. Get over that bridge and then there is a nice downhill onto the seawall. The good thing about this course is that many uphills are followed by nice downhills after to allow for recovery.

We’ll get on the Seawall at about 31km, and from then on it’s all flat and boring. Maintain focus, remain positive and finish that sucker strong. Easy peasy right? Have a great one!

The 26.2 miles from small town of Hopkinton, MA to Boylston St in Boston is the most iconic marathon race in the world. The communities that line the course come together to create an atmosphere like no other. The unrelenting course and the unpredictable weather create a unique element of unknown. The runners have earned their spot on the start line, all owning that coveted BQ. Just getting to that start line on April 15th is a journey worth telling for each of the 30,000+ runners. Race day is a celebration of these runners, the communities, this race.

We asked runners on our team to share a few words about their journey to Boston and what the race means to them. Sandra S. has experienced the full spectrum that is the Boston Marathon. We have loved being part of her journey, and we think you will love reading about it just as much as we have.

“I had to proudly include my 2018 finishing photo. It was miserable so I picked up a toss away coat that I wore to the finish. I started with the shower cap on because the storm was in full gear when I was lined up. I thought it would keep me dry in the chute.”

How many times have you raced Boston?

I have raced Boston 5 times consecutively – this is my 6th Boston and 29th marathon.

What does racing Boston mean to you?

I was at the finish line in 2013 (as a spectator) when the bombs went off and after the dust settled, I vowed to return every year that I qualified.  This year will be my 6th, my husband’s 7th and it also marks the anniversary date of the bombs – April 15th. I was a relatively new runner in April 2013, but had just qualified for Boston in my first marathon a few months earlier (November 2012).  My qualifying time was for the next year in 2014 so I was soaking everything in. I was like a kid in a candy shop overseeing all the festivities and watching the race. There was so much positive energy and buzz. The entire city was focussed on the runners.  I still remember the Boston local commentators on the local station wanting to know who that Robin Watson from Canada was. It was hysterical as they were somewhat stumped that he was leading and had to go and get information to share with the viewers. It was cute and I didn’t really know who he was either, but myself and my friend were cheering him on.

We splurged to stay at the Lennox hotel and had a room overlooking the finish line, which sadly also provided a panoramic view of the finish line bomb.  My husband was out in the streets when the bomb went off and the police forced me to stay in the hotel. However, about 10 minutes later, we were told that the threat required us to evacuate ASAP.  I eventually found my husband as I was being evacuated by the police. He was still in his running gear, without a change of clothes and we had no passports.

We walked for hours, helping other runners and people like ourselves who were lost in the streets. We tried to seek refuge in a few locations, but each time we were ordered to clear out if we were not a Boston resident.  It was getting very cold and people like ourselves were scrambling for a place to go. Eventually, we learned we could not return to the Lennox Hotel and so we walked to find another hotel (keep in mind that my husband had just run the marathon and was still in his running clothes). I had received many invites from many Bostonians who offered us a place to stay.

Eventually, I received an iMessage  (via Wifi… there was no cell service) that a friend of ours had secured a hotel room at the other end of the city. Hence, we walked there (another hour) where my husband could eventually shower and put on his stinky clothes again. We reached out to the Canadian Consulate office, and the next day we were able to get back into the Lennox hotel to retrieve our passports and belongings. At that point, the hotel had become the FBI headquarters.  We spoke with them, gave them our photos as well as videos as much of the focus of the FBI shifted to sifting through social media posts, photos and videos. It was quite surreal.

Each year since then, at least one of our kids has joined us for the weekend. Last year, we had a small family group that ran the 5km together.

Do you have any goals for the 2019 race?

I just keep showing up healthy, fit and ready to take on its challenge. The rest is out of my hands as we learned last year with the weather.  Although I am not fast, I am consistent in my performances and I take the long-range approach. I hope to still be running in my 80s (lol).

I subscribe to the theory that running is a lifetime commitment and a necessary part of my daily routine and ideally, I would like to keep going back to run Boston as long as I am able.  I have a very demanding job, travel constantly and spend a lot of time alone. Running is that vice that helps me maintain a necessary balance in life. We have 4 married children and are anxiously awaiting grandchildren. I had a bit of a health scare earlier this year with my heart, so although I love to race a lot, I do so for fun and very conservatively.

A final note:

Thanks to M2M coach, Tony who has been planning my training schedule for the last 18 months.  He tailors my training to my crazy
work schedule and gives me workouts to keep me honest and focussed no matter where I am.  We plan around my weekly travel days, the snow, and access to treadmills.  As long as I can keep balancing it all, I’ll be able to keep running.

When we reached out to Sandra she attached a photo of her dog, who trained with her for 4 of the 6 Boston Marathon’s she has run.

“He got me running even when my husband couldn’t convince me.  He was my loyal training partner until he got cancer 2 years ago.  So, now I need my M2M program to keep me motivated.”
