Weekly Training Summary: November 14 to 20, 2016

My goal is to hit 3,000 total km for the year by December 31. To do this, I have to average about 10 km per day. Last week I only did about 50 km so I had to make up for it this week in order to stay on track. I ran every day at lunch plus did a couple 20+ km trail runs on the weekend. My legs felt suprisingly good considering this was quite a high mileage week for me.

Week 14 of Gorge 100k training marked the start of my taper! Wow, I can’t believe my race is less than two weeks away now … crazy! I took a couple days off at the start of the week and only ran once on the weekend. To get my trail fix on Sunday, I volunteered for the Cap Crusher. I’m looking forward to some more tapering in the weeks ahead!

Weekly Training Summary: March 7 to 13, 2016

I was sick for most of week 13 of Gorge 100k training so I rested the first four days and then went for a short-ish lunch run on Friday. I wanted to get one last big weekend in before tapering for my race so I ran 25 km on Saturday and then joined the Squamish50 23k orientation run on Sunday. A group of us decided to also run the route backwards after the orientation run ended to get in some more distance!
