This week was a bigger one, but the upcoming week is even bigger! With only 7 weeks until Boston, that is to be expected. It has been cold on the island lately, which is fine. However, when the snow starts to come down and stay on the ground, it’s a different story. Fortunately, it is gone now, and fingers crossed that’s it for the year.
Here is what I did this week:
Monday: OFF. I did strength training and core.
Tuesday: 60′ easy, I did an out and back route along the ocean. I also did core.
Wednesday: Typically a group WO, but the snow started falling in the early afternoon and it didn’t stop. So no WO, but two of us ran 75′ easy instead.
Thursday: 75′ easy, ran big loop around the neighbourhood with my running buddy. It was great to try a new route. I also did strength-training.
Friday: 30′ easy, I did a little out and back on my lunch.
Saturday: Group WO, I was on my own for this one, but the others were doing some short faster stuff nearby. It was 40′ easy, 4km @marathon pace, 3km @marathon-half pace, 2km @half pace, 1km @10km pace, 10′ easy. During the 3km bit, there were some rolling hills (intentional) which made it challenging, but hopefully this will make me strong for Boston. I also did core.
Sunday: 2:20 easy for a 25km long-run. We ran out to Elk Lake, did a loop around the lake and then came back. This was a really enjoyable route offering a variety of trails and road, with some hills as well. I also did strength-training because it won’t fit into my day today.
Total Weekly Mileage: 88.8km
