Weekly Training Summary: July 13 to 19, 2015

I’ve been consistent at running 25 km during the week but I knew this weekend would be a big one! And I needed it to be huge! I joined the Squamish50 orientation which had two route options: 37 km or 47 km. It was tempting to try the 47 km route but we stuck with the 37 km (and it was plenty)! A few of us drove back the next day and carried on along the course with a plan of doing the last 25 km. Unfortunately we had a wasp swarm incident and had to cut our run short (only 17.5 km).


  • Lunch run – 6.3 km on road.


  • Lunch run – 10.5 km on road.



  • Lunch run – 9 km on road.


  • Rest day!


  • Long run – 38.8 km Squamish50 orientation run!


  • Long run – 17.5 km trail run (more of the Squamish50 route).

I’m going to an out-of-town wedding this coming weekend which is very exciting! … but will throw a wrench into my running schedule. I might try and do a big run at the end of this week and/or on Sunday evening. I’m not too worried though since a long weekend is coming up next and that will be my big weekend before tapering for the race! Whoa, I can’t believe it’s less than 5 weeks away!



  1. You are going to do awesome. I’ll see you at the last aid station!

  2. What an awesome running week you had. Great mileage. How are you dealing with the Summer heat?

    1. Thanks! The summer heat here is low 30s (Celsius) which feels super hot to us but I know it’s not as crazy hot as other places! The trails I’ve been doing have been fairly shaded for the most part too which helps a lot! What’s the temperature like there? How do you deal with the heat?
