Week #5

Distance Pace Weight
Last week 33.4 km 5:53 min/km 101.5 kg
This week 36.9 km 5:39 min/km 101 kg

Highlights of this week:

  • Attended the clinic again. Ran with the 8:30 group, but I think I will try 8:00 group coming Tuesday
  • First “long” run this week and it was hard.

It was a good running week and now I have hit my target volume 5 weeks in a row. I really hope I can keep this up. I am also starting to notice my weigh loss a little which is a good sign.

Day #20

15 km mid day long run

Technically this was not a long run, but it sure felt like one and it’s main purpose was to put mileage / time on my feet. Today was a gorgeous day in Port Moody – one of the few beautiful Fall days of this year. I started off too fast, of course, and subsequently most of the run felt like real work. But I did hang in there despite it being really hard on the last 3 km. It felt good and gave me a feeling of accomplishment. I know that this type of run will make me stronger and carry me through the week of regular runs. Next week I should really start slower…
