Marathon Monday(ish): Week 13

Happy Wednesday! I had all of the best intentions to write and post this on Monday (and then on Tuesday), despite the long weekend, but then I completed a very wet long run and that all went out the window.

Last week went well. I wish I had done my speed training on the treadmill, though, bec

ause I struggled to complete just 3.5K in the worst heat and humidity. Surprisingly, my favourite “run” last week was the Nike Training Club workout I had to do – it was mostly a 15 minute guided stretching and it felt wonderful. I ended up saving it to my account so I can do it again.

I also succeeded in completing my training despite going away for the long weekend. I woke up a 5AM to run 13KM before driving three hours north to go to our annual family reunion. The weather was clear and cool, and I felt very strong.

This week I’m hoping to incorporate one or two yoga classes into my schedule. I really want to start going to yoga regularly again, and I definitely think it will benefit my training.
