Scotiabank Vancouver Half - Week 7 Recap

Holy lateness, batman!  This week is almost over and I realized I hadn't done my recap for last week.  What's up, you ask?  Am I spending all my time running?  Is my nose stuck in a book?  Have I started taking swimming lessons, like I said I would?!

Nope, none of the above.  Here, I'll give you a hint....

I've done gone hockey crazy, folks.  I've watched pretty much all the regular season games, and when the Canucks themselves aren't playing, I'm watching other games to see how it might affect the Canucks.  Heck, I watch so much hockey that I can even tell the Sedin twins apart from each other.  I know!  It's nuts.  But I looove hockey and I love my boys (yes, I'm lookin' at you Bieksa).

So...workouts for last week were:

Sunday - 13K run
Oh yes....this was that stellar run where all was right with the world and I ran like the wind.  Definitely had some DOMS in my legs but just means they're getting stronger.

Monday - bootcamp

Tuesday - rest day

Wednesday - bootcamp
Great bootcamp session with J.  I've drawn out a rough training plan for the rest of the year and still wondering how I'm going to rejig things to fit in a few more runs.  And I want to keep up with the weights.  And I want to get back into yoga too.  Seriously, not enough hours in the day!

Thursday - rest day

Friday - bootcamp

Saturday - 30 mins stationery bike/run clinic
First class in the intermediate session!  It was sooo nice to actually see Marilyn...our last class was at 5:30pm, so by the time we were finishing up we could just barely make out what Marilyn was doing.  The intermediate sessions filled up quickly so the only time we could get in was noon on Saturdays so I snapped up the last two spots lickety split!  We did a quick review of the drills and did a lot of work with the elastic bands and I have to really makes a difference in terms of body feedback and knowing if you're doing it right or not.  I'm not going to lie and say it's easy, but I can feel progress slowly but surely.   I had a few really great a-ha moments last week when Marilyn was describing the movement/sensation of the leg...things are starting to click more and more, so just going to trust in the process and training!

A really good training week. It's a wonder you had enough time to fit in all that hockey-watching.

Your training looks solid! I have never watched a hokey game, which is sad considering that hokey is really big at my school.
