No more goofing around with my training. No whining about the cold and snow, wind and sleet. Nope it’s time to haul the butt out the door and just get on with it.
With any luck, March will come in like a Lion (they are calling for another 10 - 15 centimetres of snow today), and that will be the last blast of winter. Well I can dream can’t I?
So, my training is looking like this;
I have 221.5K to jam in before race day and 50K of those are hills. I haven’t broken down the tempo runs nor speed runs yet, but I didn’t want the non-runners’ eyes to glaze over at this point.
Truthfully though, I’m finding the five days a week running a little much, maybe because I’m tired of bundling up to go out and run. So, I’m trying four days per week, including Wednesdays, yes Hump Day is Hill Day in my world. Go figure . . .
In actual fact, the 30K Around the Bay is a regular training day, but my logic is, if you have to run 29K that day, you might as well do the 30K and get the Medal . . . for me “it’s all about the Bling!”
