Training is still going well! I did my longest run of the cycle on Saturday, 21.1K as two loops of Stanley Park. 21.1K to make it the actual half-marathon distance, and two loops of the park because we were staying downtown for the night. Instead of the seawall I did two times around on the road, including up and down the hill to Prospect Point. That was TOUGH, and I’m glad I could do it. The rest of the week mirrored other weeks. My Wednesday run has become a progression run on the treadmill where I gradually increase the paces of each subsequent mile from one to five. Three OTF classes for a bit of a change.
I am liking the rhythm that has developed over these training weeks.
