Fun… And Food (Week 6 of 30)

No way. Another week down already?!! Yep, 90km down. Haha,  and posting this as I’m well into week 7 – so much exciting stuff going on – and so many talks!!! But back to week #6… When I first outlined these 30 weeks, I was a little hesitant to begin so far out. I mean, … Continue reading

Let’s Get Racing! (Week 5 of 30)

Let’s Get Racing! (Week 5 of 30)

It’s funny… I’m almost surprised to say I feel great! Especially because I ran the Steveston Icebreaker 8km race today, after running 22km yesterday, and at the end of my highest mileage week thus far in my 30-week schedule. I’d wanted to hit 105km this week, and I easily hit 108km. You might think I’m … Continue reading

Lighter on My Feet (Week 2 of 30)

Lighter on My Feet (Week 2 of 30)

I didn’t do any pace work last week (other than a few strides). Or the week before. And if I do any this week, it’ll be with a group slower than my target pace. Why? Because I intentionally dedicated the first few weeks to simply ramping up mileage and getting back into the swing of … Continue reading

Go Time (Week 1 of 30)

Go Time (Week 1 of 30)

I think I was hoping for fireworks and applause. At least a few sparklers. I mean, after all, it’s the launch of my new training season! But Monday morning dawns with only a loud BOING BOING BOING. Which is the sound of my alarm. I’ve always thought about getting a kinder alarm – you know, … Continue reading
