CDR – April
Training is going well and I am loving it that finally we are getting some nice weather. What a feeling to be running in t-shirt and three-quarter tights. Not to mention warm toes
Here is a brief synopsis of what I did this month:
|Activity||W/E April 6||W/E April 13||W/E April 20||W/E April 27|
|Run||76km (30 long run)||78km (34 long run)||41km(35 long run)||91km (42 long run)|
|Interval weight class||1||1||1||1|
The treadmill work outs are usually 2 – 3 times a week and are done at 15% incline for 45 minutes. I do mix it up from time to time by adding some -3% decline and some slow running at 10% incline.
April 27th, I ran in the Gatineau Park. For those of you who know the park, I ran two inside loops – once in each direction. This took me around 5 hours and I was pretty tired at the end. Even though I was slow, I feel that I am on the right path in terms of training. I feel strong and my workouts will progressively get harder, especially as I start adding trail runs and a couple of trips to the Adirondacks in the mix.
