Fully Cooked

With one week of high volume running before my marathon on April 28th, I am feeling fully cooked.

After a rest day on Monday, I switched up my track workout day and my trainer ride day.  We secured tickets to the second to last Canucks home game on Tuesday night so I couldn't do my track workout.  

I did my trainer ride in the morning on Tuesday and my track workout on Wednesday.

Instead of going solo at the track last night I created a workout in Garmin and downloaded it to my Garmin 920XT.  

10 min warm up
8 x 1 mile with 90 seconds rest
10 min cool down

Let me tell you, this workout completely exhausted me.  I came home after the run, showered and ate but I felt so drained.  After a bit of rest on the sofa, I was able to feel better and went straight to bed.  

Today I skipped my 6am swim in favour of an extra hour of sleep.  

My mantra for the week is 'just one more week'.  Just one more week of heavy volume until I start my taper.

But first, a tempo run tomorrow and 38kms on Sunday.

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.
