CDR – w/e Feb 23 and Mar2
These were a good two weeks of training running 60 and 70 km per week. As well, I got in two or three weight/treadmill sessions.
I finished reading two books this past week: Eat and Run by Scott Jurek and Conquering the Canadian Death Race.
Conquering the Canadian Death Race is a great book as it provides valuable information in terms of preparing for the race from descriptions of the course, nutrition, gear, etc. It also validates the training plan I have designed in that the distances and types of running indicated in the book are included in my plan.
I loved Scott Jurek’s book about his journey of becoming an amazing ultramarathoner. I also liked the way he scattered various recipes throughout the book and I am looking forward to trying some of them.
I found both of these books to be a source of inspiration and motivation and they will be kept close by for times when that bit of inspiration is needed.
