Weekly Training Summary: January 25 to 31, 2016

Boom!! My first ever 100k week AND I hit 370 km for the month, which blew my previous record of 258 km out of the water.

So Week 7 of my Gorge 100k training was full of victories and I’m feeling slightly better about running 100 km in two months … although I still wince every time I say it out loud. I’ve worked a lot at loosening up my neck, shoulders, and hips while running and throughout the day. It’s paying off and slowly my body is starting to feel less tense.

This next month will hopefully be an even bigger one before I start to taper in March for the big day. Time is flying by!!

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!
