Off to IM Camp

He looks a little more comfortable on the bike than I do.

Today I am driving up to Penticton BC with some of my SAA BFFs to start our IM Camp.

We are all looking forward to an epic amount of training. I have to admit that I am still not 100% comfortable on my awesome tri bike. I bought my tri bike last summer from pro triathlete Jonathan Caron (the bike he is riding in the photos is now my bike) and have been riding it on the trainer all winter. Riding the bike on road is a different story though.

This weekend will definitely give the me practice I need and build my confidence.

Happy Training!

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.
