Training Recap January 1-7

So I haven’t done a training recap in 3 weeks, but rather than writing the most boring post ever with 3 weeks worth of runs, I’ll talk about last week and summarize the other 2.

I went to Toronto for Christmas from December 21-28. It was very cold, and very snowy. I ran anyway. It was definitely challenging trying to do a workout in the snow, it was hard to get good footing and I didn’t hit my paces, but the effort was there. My long run was challenging too, I feel like running in the snow takes more energy than usual. I did my final track workout while I was in  Toronto at the Monarch Park stadium, there is a 370m indoor track which I was happy to use. That workout went very well and it felt good to go fast instead of trudging through the snow.

I am back to running 6 days a week unless it is a race week, I haven’t done that since the fall when I was preparing for STWM, but since Boston is coming up in 3-months, it’s time to get serious again.

Here is what I did last week.

Monday: OFF

Tuesday: 45′ easy, I did a little out and back on Lochside, day one of the Lululemon x Strava challenge. I am going for 80km. I also did a core workout.

Wednesday: Group Wo, a bit of a lighter one in preparation for race day. 20′ easy, 1km @4:08, 4×90” @5km, 1km@4:03, 20′ easy. I also did an upper-body workout.

Thursday: 50′ easy, headed out on Lochside with my running buddy Binder.

Friday: OFF.

Saturday: 30′ easy and strides, the shortest Saturday run ever. I also went for a nice long walk on the beach with my friend and her dog, it was sunny and warm, about 8C!

Sunday: Race Day! 20′ easy, Pioneer 8km race, 30′ easy. Check out my Race Recap: Pioneer 8km 

Total Weekly Mileage: 49.4 km
