Alright, folks, here’s the plan: long training sessions on weekends for endurance and karate for power; shorter runs (about 8 km per session) and cross training on weekdays.
Long weekend sessions will mostly involve running up and down the trails (and the hills! Oh, the hills!!) of MacRitchie. I started with a running buddy and fellow karate-ka, Mark, about 2 months ago and we’ve made some great progress since. The goal is to hit 40 km per session in the run up to the race in October because that’s roughly the distance I’ll have to cover per day on the race WITH 10 kg of stuff on my back.
(If you haven’t stopped reading or come to the conclusion by now that there is some masochistic side to this girl, congratulations: you’ve got a bit of insanity in you too.)
