I swear there are no bad angles in Vancouver, I am always taken aback by the beauty this city has to offer. Most of my runs were in Vancouver this week and I was very happy to have a change of scenery. After 2 nights on the island, I am back in Vancouver for at least 2 more weeks, so I have many more runs ahead of me here and I am super okay with it.
This is what I did last week:
Tuesday: 55′ easy, I got to run with Tay, who I met from Sport Chek Running Club last summer, we headed out to the English Bay inukshuk. I also did the NTC core strength workout.
Wednesday: 45′ easy, I ran out to sunset beach solo. I also did the NTC core strength workout.
Thursday: Solo workout, 20′ easy, 3 x 8′ @tempo (instructed not to look at watch), 20′ easy. It felt good, especially to enjoy a workout without wondering what paces I’m hitting, running based on effort is nice. I also did a 10 minute core for runners workout, it was tough but good.
Saturday: Group workout with the Island Striders: 20′ easy, 3 x 1 mile with a jog back to the mile start between each, 20′ easy.
Sunday: 70′ easy, headed out to good ole lochside trail. I also did the NTC abs and arms workout.
Total Weekly Mileage: 53.9km
This week will bring more running adventures in Vancouver and hopefully a fun trail run.
