My bike was in for repairs all week and I had a big bike focus planned. To pile on, the pool at my condo was closed. It wasn’t the week of training I had planned, but all I could do was make lemonade out of it. I shifted gears to a run focus and reintroduced strength into my plan. I ran every day for a total of 125k, and finished the week with the MEC 15k where I was able to get in a solid tempo effort before a lingering knee/IT band issue flared up over the final couple km’s. Stuff comes up and gets in the way of that perfectly planned training week, all you can do is make the most out of it.

A big thank you to David Levy ( for the photos and videos from the MEC 15k.
