Big Training Weekend in Penticton

Pictures to come...

166kms on the bike on Sunday followed by a 2km swim/2hour run on Monday.

Great way to spend a long weekend!

Thanks to Colin, Cory, Fay and Marius for the company. Special thanks to TIM for driving the whole IMC course to provide support for us and random cyclist in trouble.

It was a hot one! 40C (104F) at the max. Yikes! We stayed hydrated and had the 70 empty Gatorade and water bottles to prove it. Yes, we recycled them at Save On Foods and collected our $3.50 for the effort. :-)

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.


My weekly swim distance increased this week to 2600m.  Although it was not faster, I felt stronger.  It is always fun to go to work with goggle marks around my eyes.
