Quebec training week 6

The heat continues in Bella Scotia.  If anyone is any doubt that #scotlandisnow they just need to be here.  The beaches are amazing, the wildlife is out and the mood is one of intense optimism.  Just like my training at the moment.

There are comments appearing on FB running pages about the heat and how it is hampering training I have news for you there is always a way.  I hate running in the heat but you do everything possible to make it comfortable and safe.

Run when its cooler this may not always be at the beginning or end of the day there might be a cool patch at some other time.  Stay hydrated.  Carry water with you, 0r cash to buy some.  Run in loops sp you can rehydrate when required.

Embrace the heat!!!

Anyway how did this weeks training go?  Really good as it happens.  More running miles than planned more cross training than planned and more weight lost!

Total miles run was 23.6 miles with 1100 feet of climbing.  My intervals have increased from 400’s to 800’s and the long run is 12.5 miles.

Biking 120 miles with 6000 ft of climb.
