Weekly Training Summary: January 18 to 24, 2016

Week 6 of my Gorge 100k training took a turn for the worse when I got sick and my neck got super tight (not sure if it is from being sick??). I took a couple unanticipated days off to rest and recover and felt better (enough) by the weekend. I was surprise by how good Saturday’s run felt actually and on Sunday I ran a 2:10 half marathon on tired legs (which is a not bad for me at the best of times haha).

It’s shaping up to be my first ever 300+ km month (*knock on wood*) which I am super stoked about! Hoping to finally get a 90 km week as well!

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!
