Before running in her first ever half marathon on Sunday September 30th, I asked Mom to do a re-cap/review of her 12 week training program :
Take it away Momma,
12 Week Half Marathon Training Program, 1st half marathon, Burnaby Lake, cross-training, Deer Lake, Grouse Grind, Grouse Grind Tips, half marathon, hill training, over 60 training program, running, spinning, Starbucks Run for Women, Sun Run 2012, Surrey International Music Marathon, Track Party Tuesday, track speed work, Vancouver, walking, weight loss
spoiler : neither Momma or I hit our sub 60 & sub 50 min 10 km goals…
BUT, we did both have strong races, and a lot of fun, so it was a successful race either way!
Mom & I are running the
Starbucks Run For Women 10 km tomorrow morning at UBC.
Here are some of MY day before race tips!
Mom came with me (I think twice) last summer, but this year, since she’s more into running and training, she’s already come with me 3 times this season!
All of her grinds have been just over an hour, but last night she cracked the 60 min barrier (post to post) WOO HOO!!!
Since I was pretty sure she’d rock it, we brought the iPhone to take some commemorative photos!
Way to go Momma! Next up, she’s going for a sub 60 min 10 km tomorrow at the
Starbucks Run for Women
Finally back feeling strong!
Yesterday, mom and I headed out for a lunch time workout, her first attempt at running intervals!
10 km, At home Crossfit, Burnaby Bushtits, Burnaby Lake, Crossfit, interval training, Planks, running, Sit-Ups, Spin Workout, spinning, Starbucks Run for Women, tempo runs, Toonie Tempo Runs
I’m still recovering from the marathon, I seem to have a small tear in my
hamstring, adductor magnus. It’s basically considered part of the hamstring, but only really functions when the hamstring is tired (I am not a doctor, this is just my understanding)
5 Peaks, Burnaby Bushtits, Burnaby Lake, Grouse Grind, half marathon, injury, marathon, Run the North Shore, running, Seek the Peak, Starbucks Run for Women, Toonie Tempo Runs, tough mudder, Trail Running, Vancouver
I’m still stuffed up, and on the cold meds, but I am feeling better, and with just over a week to go, I know I’m going to be fine for next Sunday!!
This week’s focus has been on resting, fluids, vitamins, and sleep. I took Sunday, Monday, Tuesday off from running/exercising.
I managed to do a 5 km tempo run on Weds night with my running group (24:15), luckily Jay came and ran with me…
