Victoria Marathon Training - Week 11

Week 11 down - I can't believe it. I kind of messed up this week and ran less than I was supposed to (according to my schedule) because I was looking at Week 12. Oh well, what can you do? Long run on Sunday was 15 miles around the entire downtown Vancouver peninsula (including Stanley Park).

It was POURING rain...which I can't really complain about because I've been so lucky with the weather all summer and it was more pleasant than being too warm. I couldn't have been more sopping wet by the end if I'd jumped into the drink - but it's all good. The iPod and Garmin survived as well. Rain or no rain, you can't beat running around the Stanley Park seawall on a Sunday morning. At least it wasn't crowded...

Current Marathon Training Playlist:

1. Don't Bring Me Down - Electric Light Orchestra 2. Vanished - Crystal Castles 3. I Like the Way (Radio Edit) - Bodyrockers 4. Just Dance - Lady GaGa 5. Dangerous (feat. Akon) - Kardinal Offishall 6. We're Here for a Good Time (Not a Long Time) - Trooper 7. Shut Up and Let Me Go - The Ting Tings 8. Cry for You (USA Radio Edit) - September 9. Waterloo (English Version) - ABBA 10. Call on Me (Eric Prydz vs. Retarded Funk Remix) - Eric Prydz 11. Just What I Needed - The Cars 12. Disturbia - Rihanna I need more songs - but I have a hard time finding the exact right ones...any tips would be great.

Hi Nicole... I'm into podcasts for my runs. In addition to Steve Runner which I know we both listen to... I like podcasts from CBC radio and ABC Radio Australia. In the CBC family, DNTO http://www.cbc.ca/dnto/ is a fave... as well as Spark http://www.cbc.ca/spark/ . In Australia, the 30 minutes podcast called Innovations is great as it bends the mind around all sorts of Aussie inventions that are... well, innovative. http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/innovations/
Try a few of these. Run safe. John

Hey....just checking out your blog....so I can plot how much running I need to do before I give out. SMILE I love your marathon song list. Many of those songs I really like also. This weekend I will try to work up a list of some other fast beat songs that I love. I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the fun "competition" that we are having. It really helps me keep on my running schedule. Now if I can just increase my long runs then I will be doing good. SMILE Hope your having a great day
