Training Recap June 12-18


This week’s runs were all in Vancouver! The weather has gone back to thinking it is winter or spring, but nevertheless I am still happy for the week I had. 

Monday: East Van Run Crew @ Luppolo Brewery. This was a good easy run to start the week. Typically I have Monday off, but I switched it for Tuesday so I could join in. I also did an NTC core workout.

Tuesday: OFF. My dad arrived in Vancouver for a visit and we caught up over a beer.

Wednesday: WO, headed out to New Brighton Park and did some speed work there. 20′ warm-up, 2 sets of 4 x 90′ tempo, 20′ cool-down. I also did an NTC core workout.

Thursday: OFF. I did the NTC core crunch workout.

Friday: 30′ easy, headed out along Victoria drive and ended up on the grand view woodland bike path. 

Saturday: WO, normally done bright and early, but since I wasn’t running with the group and my dad was visiting, we went for brunch instead and did then WO in the afternoon. Decided to take advantage of the proximity to Empire Field and run over there for the warm-up and, the WO was 2 sets of 6’@4:50, 2’@4:35. Admittedly, I got a bit excited to be on the track and went a bit faster, but that’s alright. 

Sunday: 90′ easy, Father’s Day run/bike. It was raining and grey, but it had to be done. We headed out early taking the Adanac bike route to False Creek and a bit of the Seawall. We finished it off with brunch at La Mezcalaria. I also did an NTC core workout. 

Total Weekly Mileage: 50.2 km

I am working and running in Vancouver until Thursday night when I head back to the island briefly before leaving to Hornby Island for the weekend! I have never been and I cannot wait.
