10k training update – week 7

Here’s my training from last week, Monday, August 21 to Sunday, August 27. This week I cancelled two of my three of my social workouts. When I woke up to go to Nevember Project I found myself inspired to make art, and since I’d been working through a pretty long art block I felt I needed to take advantage of that. On Friday I was supposed to run with the Fraser Street Run Club but when the time came I wasn’t feeling well. I’m pretty sure that one was all in my head, but I did use that time to keep working on a piece I was working on.

I got a PR at Parkrun this week, and I’m just over a minute away from a sub-30 5k!


Body weight stuff at home. I didn’t really put much effort into it.

Easy run

5 km: Easy run following the Gallery Alley route so I could enjoy the murals again.

November Project yoga at home (Yoga with Adriene)

I woke up in time but decided that I wanted to take my workout to the gym to have more control over what my workout would be.  *Is my introversion sabotaging my social workouts???*

Strength + easy treadmill

4.8 km: This was a great workout! I did a lot of arm and core stuff.


Was supposed to run with FSRC…

70 mins easy @ Parkrun

10.66 km: This run was awesome! I went out to Richmond early so I could finish the first half of my planned run before Parkrun started. I ran somewhere new and saw FIVE bunnies! I also got two waves from other runners. I’m definitely doing that again next week. I got a Parkrun PR! 31:08 for a 5k.

I swear I’m having fun here! I’m rocking out to Hamilton, but not actually singing. Just gasping for air!
