Training Tuesday and Long Weekend Catch-Up

It has been a crazy week over here. Last week was filled with my one woman war against the National Post, starting a new semester at school (my final semester - finally!), marathon training, and working at one of my now 3 part-time jobs. I barely had a chance to catch my breath all week. I did get all of my planned training runs in I just a very bad job of instagramming them!

Luckily it was a long weekend here in Canada so I opted to unplug and spend some time with my  favourite people. It was still busy. But it was nice busy. I got caught up on my Marathon Training. Spent lots of time with my hubby and my pup. Saw Family. Spent time with friends. Ate way too much cheese. Squeezed in some reading. Enjoyed the sunshine. And just relaxed a little.

It was just what I needed. And it is a good thing too. Because I have a whole lot more work ahead of me this week too. All before we jet off to Halifax on Saturday for a Family Vaca and to see my little sister graduate.

This week's plan...
Sunday - 15km Long Run with Pick-ups
Monday - 6km Run
Tuesday - Core
Wednesday - 10km Tempo Run
Thursday - 1.5km Swim
Friday - 5km Fartlek Run 
Saturday - Cross Training

I will be packing my trusty running shoes and heart-rate monitor to take my training on the road next week. Running is always my favourite way to explore a new place. And I am definitely looking forward to a change in scenery and some quality family time.
