Hamstring on the mend, now for the flu

Just wanted to give a quick update on my hamstring. After 2 IMS sessions and 4 ART sessions, I am on the mend. On Sunday I went for a slow and steady 5km run and felt good. My hamstring was tight but not painful. After my run, I stretched, stretched and then stretched some more.

On Tuesday morning, I woke up around 3am with the flu and a fever. I will spare the details but I am just starting to eat food again today. I am feeling weak but perking up with every item I eat.

So, two setbacks in the past few weeks. Hopefully, things don't actually happen in 3s.

Another day of rest for me today to recover. I should be ready for spin tomorrow and another short run by Friday.

Happy training!

I didn't know you had the flu ! I'm glad you're starting to feel better again.

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.
