Taking the new team gear (and new shoes) our for a spin because I was too excited not to! We got lululemon kits this year in 3 options: tank, t-shirt and long sleeve. I went for a tank and long-sleeve, so both seasons are covered. I am extra excited about this gear because I designed the logo!
This week was half in Victoria and half in Vancouver. Here is what I did last week:
Tuesday: 60′ easy, departed from home which is a rarity on weekdays. Sometime shortly after my out-and-back turn-around, my GPS went wild and my paces began to “triple”. This was odd and continued for the rest of the run, fortunately I knew exactly how long it was. I also did an arm workout.
Wednesday: WO for 1, at the track: 20′ easy, 5’@4:14 (supposed to be 4:35-4:40), 3’@4:45, strides and ABC’s, then: 3 x 400 m, 4 x 100m, 3 x 400m, 20′ easy. This was tough! It’s definitely much more motivating and FUN to do track workouts in a group.
Thursday: 80′ easy, ran from east van to the sea wall and along beach drive, it was so dark I was freaked out by the sea walk at sunset beach, so I went up to the sidewalk. I also did a core workout.
Friday: OFF. Woke up sicker than ever. Food poisoning, enough said. Luckily no run home as scheduled.
Saturday: Supposed to have been a hill workout at Mt. Doug but on account of the previous days’ stomach trouble and inability to eat at all I missed the WO. I did go for a slow walk to say hi to everyone and grab my new team gear!
Sunday: Supposed to be 90′ but I did 60′ just to be safe. Fortunately by the end of the day I was feeling pretty well back to 100%. My running buddy and I also stopped by the Lululemon Victoria grand reopening later on. There were cookies from the cookie guy and 25% off the whole store, which looks great by the way. Now that’s a solid Sunday.
Total Weekly Mileage: 47.1km
This week I have 3 runs in Victoria before heading home to Toronto for the holidays! Time to dig out my winter running layers I guess.
