In 1 word, this week was: SOAKED. I swear my clothes were soaking wet after almost every run, and not from sweat. It has been pouring rain. I don’t mind necessarily, I will run no matter what, but when your shoes are wet for days on end, you kind of notice the rain. I had 2 quality workouts this week and that was great!
Monday: OFF. I did absolutely nothing. Nothing active that is, I watched Molly’s Game.
Tuesday: 50′ easy, met up with my running buddy, Binder, we did an out and back on our regular route. I also did a core and arm workout.
Wednesday: Group WO, back to the track after some time away! 20′ easy, 4×2’@tempo, 200m, 600m, 400m, 1000m, 800m, 200m, 30′ easy. The track was fun, but we got booted to lane 4 just before our 1000m, aside from that it was great, though it rained and we were all soaked.
Thursday: 45′ easy, I ran home from work in the rain. I felt extra tired for some reason, so I rested for a bit and then did strength training. My plan was to shower and then relax for the rest of the evening, but when I got out of the shower, my running buddy Joanne texted me and convince (read: coerced) me to come to yoga with her. I thought okay, a nice, chill class, that will be good. It was fast-paced and challenging on account of being tired, but, still I was happy to have gone.
Friday: 30′ easy, ran to work and got completely soaked, happy Friday!
Saturday: Group WO, 15′ easy, 20’@HMP (4:33), 3×3’@10km (4:20, 4:21, 4:32), 15’@HMP (4:37), 3×90”@10km (4:10), 20′ easy. This was a relatively large workout. It went well though, some parts were slightly fast, some were a teenie bit slow, so it all evens out. I also did an arm and core workout.
Sunday: 50-60′ easy, I ran 10 and then decided to quit. I missed the rain by about 1 minute, I call that a win. I also did a core workout.
Total Weekly Mileage: 63.7km
Next up…First Half next Sunday in Vancouver! Can’t wait for a fun weekend in Vancouver. Oh and racing a half, it’s been a while. Should be interesting.
