Here’s my training report for the week of Monday, October 9th. Spoiler alert: I had an excellent week!
It was race week! I’ve already posted my race recap for the Turkey Trot I ran on Monday.
Oh boy, did my routine suffer this week. Long weekend, a race on a Monday, and still getting over my cold. I’m not too mad at it since I still haven’t decided on a time goal for my half. I’ll get back to normal next week for sure. I’m looking forward to the routine.
Actual: Granville Island Turkey Trot race! [10.1 km]
Easy 30-45 min run
Plan: November Project
Actual: November Project. I didn’t use my Garmin, I tracked it as HIIT with my Apple Watch instead so I don’t have a distance to record. Other NPers’ posts on Strava say we ran about 3 km total. We ran around for an hour between stations where we did lunges, planks, squats, and sprints. It was a GREAT workout, and I won the Positivity Award for the week!! What?!
50 – 1 hr 10 min – cruise intervals
Actual: Rest. I wish I’d at least done yoga but I was wiped.
Plan: 30-45 min easy run
Actual: Lululemon Ghost Run with November Project [8.3 km]. I’d planned to run it easy but my new friend Katie from NP pushed me to a comfortably uncomfortable pace. We averaged 5:57/km. I felt like throwing up at the end but didn’t!
Plan: 1 hr 20 min to 1 hr 30 min long run with 20 min kick at the end.
Actual: [13.5 km] on a BEAUTIFUL day. I haven’t actually done a long run in a few weeks, but my easy pace seems to be getting a bit faster.
Total distance: 34.9 km
I need a shower and a burger right now!
