Richmond Oval Family Skate Night

My post race cold has really taken hold of me and I hadn't worked out since the race on Sunday.

Last night was a family event at the Richmond Oval organized for employees at my husband's workplace. Skating is far from my forte but I did manage to get in a 2 mile skate last night with the family without falling or injuring myself.

This morning I did haul myself out of bed at 5:20am for 2500m in the pool with The SAA. Of course it was the post swim coffee with the team that really motivated me to do it.

Happy Training!

You're a trooper Erin! I can't swim 2500m on a good day (yet!). I will defintely know who to talk to when and if I start triathlon 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.
