6 races in 6 weeks

Niagara Ultra Marathon, Half and 120k startIt’s no real feat to knock off 6 races in 6 weeks so I won’t go on too long on about them. They’re all just a part of my Fall Marathon preparation. I have been doing them as training runs, no rest preparation etc, just throwing them into the mix as Tempo runs. I did 4 x 10km road races and last weekend tackled a 28km trail race as a long run. That race was one that requires a bit more discussion as they is just so many interesting things about it that although it wasn’t a planned goal race, it sure felt like it by the time I was done.

Here is a recap of June / July

  • Niagara On The Lake, ON – 10km – 46mins, paced son Cam to his 10k PB. We finished 3rd and 4th overall, 1st in age groups
  • Sunnybrook Pk, Toronto, ON – Run for Huntington’s Disease – 10km – 42:44 – 3rd overall
  • Barrie – Canada Day Races – 10km – 42:38 – 1st in the 40+ age group
  • Grand Beach, MB (90km north of Winnipeg) – 10k – 42:35 – 6th overall, 3rd in age group
  • Limberlost Trail Race, Hunstville, ON – 28km – 3:08:59 – 22nd overall, 9th in age group
3rd overall at the Sunnybrook pk Run for HuntingtonsNow, these are all fairly small races so there’s no getting too excited about the high finish positions but as far as training runs go, i am quite please. Except for the Limberlost Trail run which I ran without my brain. More on that later.
Next up – The Beaches Jazz Tune Up Run (Part of The Scotiabank Toronto Marathon Series)
Sunday July 24 – 20km. This will definitely be just a training run!

Crazy mad runner, wanting to be fitter and faster but too busy to do it right. Still, I keep trying.
