Trail running training log for the UTMB circuit and other random thoughts

Training Log Week 28-30 – Two races Two PBs

Over the last three weeks I’ve had a few opportunities to run in winter weather. Had a nice icy run in Saskatoon a few weeks back and a record setting half marathon in crisp winter conditions in Vancouver last weekend.
I think this should be my next major winter marathon:
And now for 3 weeks of training logs…

Monday: Trampoline
Tuesday: nothing
Wednesday: felt ill
Thursday: 30 min treadmill run (felt ill)
Friday: nothing (felt ill)

Things that went well:

  • Two PB’s! During the Phantom Trail Race I chopped 9 minutes off of my time during the orientation run.
  • At the last minute I signed up for the Vancouver Historic Half. My goal was to break my previous PB of 2:21

Lessons Learned for Next Time:

  • Lots of rest leads to race PBs?
