I’m leaving for Antarctica in a week. It looks cold there, better get my long johns out!
Check out the Richard Juryn trail in North Vancouver (above). So happy to be running in this terrain.
Things that went well this week:
- 5 runs this week, that’s a record for me. I know it wasn’t in the plan, I’m freaking out about not feeling prepared, so I ran a lot this week.
- Long run was 32KM this week with 1,200 m in elevation gain.
- This week I put my gels in a squeeze bottle and mixed it with a bit of water. It was a much more enjoyable way to eat my gels.
Lessons Learned for Next Time:
- I can feel my appetite increasing. I should make an effort to have healthy snacks on hand so I don’t just grab whatever is convenient. (I’m saying this because after my run on Sunday I ate a grilled cheese sandwich, almond croissant and a donut- man were they tasty!)
One more week left to train!
