Weekly Training Summary: January 4 to 10, 2016

Wahoo! I hit 80 km for Week 4 of Gorge 100k training! I feel stronger and seem to be recovering faster … I hope it lasts! The weather was awesome this week and it was even a bit warmer and sunny on the weekend. I almost forgot it’s winter!

I’m loving the new Salomon S-lab Adv Skin3 12set pack my parents got me for Christmas. It can hold so much stuff and is still really comfortable! I’ve also been wearing my new 2XU Hyoptik thermal compression pants which are amazing (review coming soon) and perfect for the weather. I often end up washing them Saturday night so I can wear them again on Sunday!

My goal for next week is to run 90 km.

  • Monday – 5.2 km lunch road run
  • Tuesday – Rest day
  • Wednesday – 10 km lunch road run
  • Thursday – 10 km lunch road run
  • Friday – 10 km lunch road run
  • Saturday – 30 km morning trail run
  • Sunday – 15.3 km morning trail run

  • Total Time – 9h 55m



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!
