Training update Feb 10 – 14

Feb 10 2020

After coming home from work I ran 5.53km at a 5.26 min/km pace and then did 20 laps at 50ft per lap. A bit of a heavy first day back in but I definitely felt mentally lighter after all of this. Excited for tomorrows rest day

I was feeling good on tue so I decided to add in another run. Felt pretty good even though it was a little chill i was able to do 6.36km at a 5.08 min/km pace. Fairly happy with that as I begin my marathon prep but I have a very long way to go.

Today I had the chance of joining in on a spin class. Was good to mix up the workout and strengthen the legs a bit. Definitely recommend a spin class if you are looking to change things up. I went to Rocket cycle in Toronto Canada. Here’s the link in case anybody is interested in checking it out. https://rocketcycle.ca/

Was quite a chilly night and yes it was valentines and I spent it running. I did buy a new pair of runners the Hoka One One Clifton 6. Did my first run on them today and they felt fairly cushioned. Not the greatest for running in the winter because of the lack of traction. Otherwise it was a pretty good initial run, no blisters no pains and no bruised nails. Today’s run was a 7.02km run at a 5.25 min/km pace. was -9 degrees Celsius but it felt like -17. Luckily I had a friend join which made it a little better. (tip: find a friend to help make it more enjoyable)

I am a marathoner, a full time employee, a part time server. I enjoy running and I am also trying to live a more mindful lifestyle and it is quite the experience.
