Lake Stevens training update

It has been a while since I updated my BLOG. Since my last post I have completed the first three weeks of my training program for Lake Stevens 70.3. I managed to stick to all but two of the workouts planned for my by The Peak Centre for Human Performance (doesn't that name sound cool!!) I am currently on a 'recovery' week awaiting my next four week program later this week.

I also competed in the Delta Triathlon. It was a great day and a great event. Gotta love the Sprint distances. Great news is that all my training paid off. I took 5 minutes off my time from last year and felt great doing it. Goes to show that training does make a difference. Good thing since I seem to spend a lot of time training these days.

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
