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!



I started running about three years ago. Until this time i had never considered myself a runner and actually hated running. I’m not sure what changed but i’m glad it did! I enjoy sharing my thoughts, training, and experiences through my blog and encouraging and supporting others in their running journeys.

Since becoming a runner, I have completed a handful of half marathons, three full marathons, and four ultra marathons. However, my biggest accomplishments have been running the Rim2Rim2Rim in the Grand Canyon and completing a seven-day, 250km stage race in the Alps. These were adventures of a lifetime and something I had never imagined that I would do even in my wildest dreams!


    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?
