Spring Half Training 2013 Week 14

Week 1 of tapering.

Rest day. Monday was tough. I had been extremely busy at work all day so even though I had heard the news out of Boston, I didn't have a chance to fully digest things until I got home. Than I stayed glued to the TV for the rest of the night.

8.9 km. Had to run. Not my best run of the week or even the last 3 months, but needed to be done.

P90X Back & Biceps, Nike Training Club core. Back to my buddy Tony Horton. Pain.

5K on the treadmill with updated version of Zombies, Run! Definitely makes treadmill running a bit more interesting.

5.44km at roughly half marathon goal pace.

P90X Chest, Shoulders & Triceps followed by some core work on the ball. Still feeling this today.

10K on the Belt Line . Beautiful day for a run. Lots of people and dogs out. I stopped on the bridge to cheer on the Yonge Street 10K

Looking forward to running this soon.
I pretty much stopped with my daily yoga last week and I'm feeling a difference. My hamstrings definitely feel tighter and I was a bit achy during Sunday's run (might have also been the heels I wore the night before at work). Going to get back to it this week.

Looking forward to a new week.


  1. How have I never heard of Zombie Run before? That sounds awesome!

  2. What is the Belt Line? Sounds interesting? Hopefully you were able to get back to your yoga last week!

    1. The belt line is a trail that runs from around Eglinton/Allen Expressway to Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Great walking/biking/running trail.
