This week consisted of 6 runs in beautiful Vancouver. My mileage dropped even further, and I have started waking up and going to bed early to prepare for the 3-hour time change in Toronto next weekend. I wake up between 4 and 5am, unfortunately this is too early for places that offer GOOD coffee to be open and I have had to drink Starbucks, which I only do out of desperation. We are spoiled in Vancouver and Victoria with so many options to get coffee with locally roasted beans. Anyway, this is how the week went:
Monday: OFF. I did the NTC Abs and Arms workout.
Tuesday: 45′ easy, I ran around East Van and the sun was out, a great fall day.
Wednesday: Solo WO: 20′ easy, 10’@MP, 4 x 4’@10km pace, 20′ easy, ran to New Brighton Park and used the gravel loop for my intervals. I even missed the rain. I did the NTC Core Strength WO afterwards.
Thursday: 50′ easy, back to New Brighton Park for a relaxed run.
Friday: 40′ easy, did a little neighbourhood loop down Powell St to downtown and then back along Hastings. I also did the NTC Core Strength WO.
Saturday: WO with Tay, 10′ easy, 30’@MP, 20′ easy, it was brisk on the Seawall, but lovely to do a WO with Tay who crushed it as usual. I also did the NTC Ab Burner 2.0 workout.
Sunday: 60′ easy, and I did the Ghost Race as well as some extra km. There were many more people out on the Seawall than usual, and I have a feeling many of them were fellow Ghost Racers. Leave it to Lululemon to encourage more people to get out and run on a Sunday, always impressive!
Total Weekly Mileage: 58.6km
The taper begins, fingers crossed the crazy stays at bay.
