Streaking Update - Week 1

Happy Long Weekend Friends!

Week 1 has come and gone, and I think I did pretty good. I ran 40 km this week, which still puts me short by 10 km - but I feel relatively okay with that.

This week was crazy- life-wise - for me. I had a mid-term Wednesday, and I definitely burnt myself out early in the week with early AM studying session before work and late night library visits after class, so the fact that I still went running 4 out of 7 days is alright by me. Under normal circumstances I probably would have thrown running out the window all together, so baby steps...

This weekend I didn't do much in the way of exercise or nutrition. I spent time with great friends, had some drinks, had some laughs, and slept in all weekend. But it was a must in terms of nuturing my spirit. I feel refeshed and happy and ready to face the world again.

My next race is 3 weeks away, I am running a 10 km race for Breast Cancer on June 11th, and I am admittedly started to get pumped! (Speaking of which is you would like to help me fundraising please go to https://www.giving.runningroom.com/hm/?sub=3&charityId=140&id=VjVRZAJiBWE%3D&item=8&guest=1&lan=1 every little bit helps!) This week I am planning to do some serious long distance running, mixed with strength trainning, and cross trainning. So this week's mini-goal is more specific.

Run a Total of 45 km
2 Strength Training Sessions
2 Cross Training Sessions

Wish me luck, I am heading out to run my longest distance run to-date 15 km. So let's go streaking! You can bring your green hat too!

Love your favourite Darwinian Fail,
