Training Recap July 18-24

I have 11 more weeks of training until my 1st ever marathon! Yes, that is almost 3 months, but I have a feeling it will fly by and soon I will be toeing that start line anxiously! So, what did my training consist of last week?

Monday: 16km “easy”, part 1 with Sport Chek Robson Training Club, part 2 at The Adidas Runners Vancouver Launch x East Van Run Crew (my regular run crew), part 3 my solo run home. I also did Gracie Gold’s Core Strength Workout from The Nike Training Club app.

Tuesday: OFF. I did a strength training circuit, lots of body weight exercises like planks, squats, lunges etc.

Wednesday: Interval workout with the Sport Chek Robson Training Club at Beaver Lake. This was a 1-2-3-2-1-2-3-2-1 fartlek workout. They said it was hard, which was the idea. The total was: 10.82km. I also did Joselynne Boschen’s Alpha Abs Workout from The Nike Training Club app- my abs were sore for 2 days after, but it was great.

Thursday: 40 mins “easy”, this ended up being 7.33km, while I tested out my new shoes. You can about them here: Shoe Review: Under Armour Gemini 2

Friday: Run and circuit workout with Sport Chek Robson Training Club. We ran to China Creek Park and did laps around the park as well as body weight exercises using the exercise equipment there, we included hill sprints in our circuit too! The total was 10.07km.

Saturday: I did a 20 minute warm-up, 3 x 10 mins @ marathon pace, 20 min cool-down for a total of: 13.73 km. I also did the same strength training circuit from Tuesday.

Sunday:  I did a 45 min yoga class with the Sport Chek Robson Training Club, followed by 45 min “easy” run, 8km.

Total Weekly Mileage: 65.95km

I will be in Squamish for half of the week participating in a running camp led by my coach! I am super excited.

  1. Sounds like an awesome week of training, nicely done! I’ve never tried the NTC app before. They sound like good workouts! Have a blast in Squamish, what a great place to go for training.

    • Thanks Danielle! I definitely recommend trying NTC, there are so many workouts to choose from and they have videos to demonstrate any moves you are unfamilar with. Lots of great core workouts 🙂
