sooooo Vic and I ran 2 loops of Elk Lake today….20k…and by ran i mean ran most of the way and walked some of it….but the name of the game is getting the distance in….the most exciting part is that my cardio was awesome. Felt like I could run forever…HOWEVER, my hip gave out on me…stupid injuries….i feel like it will get better…when I first started training the 10k distance my joints hated me….and I pushed through it and now the 10k distance is easy… this is a new distance, new pain to push through… i feel like it’ll get better….in all fairness I made a huge training distance’s only fair that my body takes some time to hate me for it….so this week is tuesday 10k, thursday 15k and then sunday marathon!! sounds like fun, doesn’t it! No? I didn’t think so either…..


So, I’m focused on running right now….no triathlons throughout the winter and due to my recent procedure I’m not allowed to swim for another week so I’m totally focused on training to hopefully run the Royal Victoria Marathon. Which might be pushing it. We’ll see. I was supposed to train with Shorty last night but I wasn’t feeling well. So hopefully tonight instead. I like having someone to push me because sometimes I get lazy. So, here’s the plan:

Monday: run (treadmill) weights
Tuesday: 2 horses to ride, weights, run (treadmill)
Wednesday: Elk Lake 10k
Thursday: run (treadmill), weights, climb Finlayson
Friday: 2 horses to ride, Elk Lake run
Saturday: run (treadmill) weights
Sunday: long run, Elk Lake, 2 loops
So, in theory I’m going to make it up to 20 k runs this week, which I’ll need to do if I plan on making it to the marathon. Headed to dinner with a classmate to get some school stuff done…then gym!! More later!!
