Post-Marathon Week 2: What the Plan Is

So, 2 weeks post-marathon and time for a bit of an update. I am still recovering from the Victoria Marathon (which I ran on Oct.12th) and haven't been doing any hard running lately. I don't have any injuries to worry about, which is great, but my knees and ankles are not 100% back to normal yet. My rule of thumb is generally a month of very easy running after a marathon, so I am on track. So what's this map of Whistler Mountain doing up here you may ask? Well, my friends, you see last winter I braved ice & snow, polar winds, snowploughs, blizzards, incessant rain, and perpetual darkness to get in my long runs while marathon training.... ...After that splendid experience I decided there was no way in hell I would train for a spring marathon again unless I qualified for Boston. So, this winter I've got a season's pass to Whistler & I plan to ski my ass off through the months of December, January, February, March, and April.
You can expect to see a lot more pictures like this one (above) in the coming months....

Good for you! I plan to "ski my ass" off too but mostly on Nordic gear. Looking forward to trying out the new Nordic track at Callaghan Valley with my racing skis....mom
