Running in the snow

Winter has arrived in Niagara and conveniently coincided with the start of my marathon training.

It wasn’t really an issue for this time around. I think we got off pretty easy – probably just more than 16 cm of snow for the week. Only moved one workout to the indoor track at the YMCA; the roads and sidewalks were good enough for easy running this week.

I’m keeping a training log as I prepare for the Cornwall Run to End MS marathon. If anyone is interested click here to see how I am doing.

I plan on setting a new PB at the race and qualifying for the Boston Marathon. I’ve used the third edition of Daniel’s Running Formula to help me with my training. It’s been a while since I ran 100k in a week, but haven’t found the increase in mileage too hard (it’s only week one, lol). I did find my threshold workout yesterday challenging to complete and I think it was probably due to the more mileage. Can’t wait to see how I improve.

I’ve also updated my Races in Niagara listing with the DSBN Road Race in April, the Rankin Cancer Run in May and the Niagara Falls Women’s Half Marathon in June. Which race are you going to do?

Gotta run,

Rob
