The warm weather has finally arrived in my hometown of Kenora, Ontario. It seemed like yesterday I was making the cold drive down to my local fitness club in order to try and get some miles in on the good old treadmill. I will be the first person to tell you how much I dislike “training like a hamster.” Unfortunately when the temperature in Northern Ontario hovers around -15 to -20 nearly 5 months of the year, you have to do the best with what you got. Thankfully, an early spring brought on a very mild April, and I was able to get some very good 10 mile runs outside. So without further ado, I present my unoffical 2012 Marathon Season Schedule. As you can see, my official running season starts May 6th!
Over the next 5 months I have entered or will be entering the following races in my region:
Over the next few months I hope to keep all of GamerFitNation readers updated with my personnal tips, ideas and thoughts. Just as an example, I went with something different with my training this year. I tried to put more focus on strength training and speed drills. Whether it was squats or lunges, any emphasis I could put on my lower body (legs and more legs) I attempted. Some with better results than others!
I hope to keep you updated as my season unfolds!
