Weeooo race week! Prince Rupert Half Marathon! Rupert Runners for life! Only one hard day this week for that reason. The only thing I love more than race week is race DAY, which is today since I’m posting this on Sunday morning. I’ll recap the race separately!
Operation: Pump up the JAMmie officially starts TOMORROW! I can’t believe it’s time. I’m ready. The plan is to run strong and finish on empty in this half, giving us an idea of where I’m at. Then, start shit-stomping the operation. Here’s what I was up to this week!
Monday, April 2nd – easy day
7k aerobic, trail 🙂 nice change
Tuesday, April 3rd – hard day
First up, swim. 1650m
Next up, nap! followed by an awesome tempo run
- 3k easy
- 4k tempo
- 3k easy
and finally, GYM! I did workout #1 from Kristen, which is basically full-body. My posterior chain especially is like dammmmn.
Wednesday, April 4th – recovery day
Swim only today, and holy shit my arms were tired! I did not expect that. Practiced the same thing as Tuesday, which was 5 x 300m.
Thursday, April 5th – easy day
7k aerobic. Hamstrings still sore from gym day! Extra foam rolling.
Friday, April 6th – easy day
Started with a swim, and decided to keep it simple but challenge myself with 2 x 500m. Success!! Confidence booster for sure.
Then I went to meet Jess for an easy run..
6.5k aerobic planned..except her plan called for ten and I didn’t say no..whoops. #sorrycoach
Saturday, April 7th – easy day
20:00 easy + strides, the usual pre-race agenda from Lifelong Endurance.
Then I went to grab my bib and that’s it, besides coffee, nap and deck, since the weather was fantastic! And the forecast is looking good for the race, too!! Ready to rock and roll
Talk to you post-race. Happy Sunday xo
