Mississauga Marathon Training Week 6 & 7 and vacation photos!

Here is a condensed post because there was not a lot of running in these two weeks.

Week Six
Monday: Rest

Tuesday: Treadmill Tempo. I upped the pace to 5:19/km and added a bit so that I could get a good cool down in. 7.24k, 41:28

Wednesday: Treadmill part two. I couldn't get out with the group on this day and I was very tired because Fergus was up at the crack of dawn (before my 5:20am alarm), so I just ran a bit of a ladder on the treadmill with a 1.5mi tempo in the middle. 9.7k, 55:33

Thursday: A super easy and fun run with the group. 8.07k, 51:15

Friday: Rest Saturday: 23k LSD Rest due to snowstorm Sunday: Sail away!

Total KM 25.01, Total time: 2:28:16, Average pace per KM: 0:05:56

Week 7
This week was spent aboard the Disney Wonder, sailing from LA to Mexico and back. It was an amazing trip and I got two runs in:

Tuesday: 5ish km, 29:39
Thursday: 5.35k, 34:44

Total KM 10.35, Total time: 1:04:23, Average pace per KM: 0:06:13

Views of the runs:

The trip was so worth it! We all had an amazing time and will be going back again when Fergus is a bit older. Here are some more photos for you to enjoy!

On the plane!

Pirate Night!

Character breakfast! Fergus loved everyone!

Formal Dinner!

Dancing before dinner (we did this almost every night).

Valentine's day brunch (post run). This is the adult only restaurant and was well worth the extra $20 per person.

As you can see, we had a great trip and there wasn't much time for running! I'm right back at it this week though and I've racked up my highest mileage to date (to be detailed in another post).


  1. Glad you had such a good trip. It sure looks like fun. Good for you getting a couple of runs in - no small feat on vacation with little ones, I'm sure!

  2. looks like such a fantastic trip! a break from running is hard to do - but just what your body needs sometimes.


Thanks for joining in the conversation!
