Here’s my training from last week, Monday, September 4 to Sunday, September 10.
This is technically the end of my 10k training plan and the beginning of my half marathon training plan, even though I haven’t run my 10k race yet. The training plans overlapped by two weeks, so I decided to change my mindset to focus on the half instead.
This wasn’t a great week of training. I didn’t stick to my plan and I didn’t eat well, which left me feeling horrible on Thursday with a headache and a stomach ache that was so painful it was hard to breathe.
But you know what? I’m not going to beat myself up over it. We’ll call it a cutback week and carry on next week like it didn’t happen, okay?
Actual: 11km walk (very leisurely) around Stanley Park to take reference photos for my paintings. It was a lot of walking but I’ll still count it as rest.
Plan: November Project
Actual: NP: [2.8 km] Core and cardio and a water balloon fight!
Easy run + strength
Actual: Rest (terrible stomach ache from terrible diet choices)
5k with Fraser Street Run Club
Plan: 5k with Parkrun
Actual: 5.07k in 30:04. So close to sub-30!
Plan: Long run: 10 min warm-up + 40 min easy pace + 5 min brisk walk + 40 min easy pace + cool-down
Actual: 13.6k and my legs are absolutely toast! I’ll be in bed the rest of the day and that’s fine by me. 🙂
Total distance: 21.47
