Seek the Peak: 25 Days To Go
Well I am one week into my ramped up training for Seek the Peak and I am feeling fierce! I did take the Victoria Day long weekend off from work, but I still managed to get in a training run everyday; one flattish, one utilizing the hills as well as the scenery of White Rock, one tempo and one in the trails.
This morning I did my second training session with the Body Campers (also another excuse to wear my posing shoes). Out of sport I decided to dust off the chin-up bar and add stair plyometrics to the circuit. I am not sure how the group feels about my working out along side them, but it is doing my body good, although after the 4th round of skipping drills with the weighted rope, my backside looks more like I spent the morning with Christian Grey than in my Studio.
One thing that I noticed almost immediately was the increase to my appetite; feeding the python this week has been reminiscent of marathon training. It was also perfect timing for the cooler full of Keri sized containers of manicotti that my Mun made and delivered to me over the weekend.
The Grouse Grind officially opened over the weekend, so my training plans for the next week include a test grind (maybe to the peak depending on the snow pack), hitting the weight room with D, taking the stairs EVERYWHERE and also giving my body a little rest time so I can finish my latest read.
