The time to hesitate is through

May 13, 2013

During scheduled downtime when the weather gets nice and I’m healthy I have to force myself not to run. And just like when I force myself not to air drum when I hear In The Air Tonight, every once in a while I crack. So I ended up running twice during my two weeks “off,” no big deal. The next week I ran a little more (~100km) and last week I ran 160km, just easy running.  This week I will add in some quality (grade C quality) which I call “training to train.”

Nassagaweya road – marathon training mainstay

I have the luxury to ease into training because I’m not peaking until the fall and my first race effort will be the Scotia Vancouver Half on June 23rd. In the meantime I’m really looking forward to going to the Saskatchewan Marathon (May 26th) with Dylan Wykes to talk at the pasta dinner.  A couple of days later (May 28th) there is going to be a great track meet at the University of Guelph. Despite the ridiculously long title (The Speed River Inferno presented by New Balance), the lack of website and a satellite website to purchase tickets this will be a quality track meet.
