As mentioned in this post, I’m attempting to get my own BQ. I am excited to be training using again the Hansons Method. In a nutshell, this training is based on the concept of cumulative fatigue. You train your body to run often so that you are frequently running on tired legs. The idea is to run this way so that during the last miles of a race you are prepared to push through the final miles. I purchased a new Hansons Method Marathon Plan and now will be running 5 days (instead of 6) a week.

Still in Alaska. I’ve created a page specifically for this trip.
On Monday we did a 4 Mile “Amazing Race” in Skagway. We got a map and a list of places to find. Each was worth 1 point and a few others 2,3 and 5 points.
Meghan and I got 13 points. We did not win but definitely had fun.
I went kayaking (first and probably last time). It was fun for about 15 minutes. Then I got tired. I will admit that I was terrified of the kayak tipping over.
Our last run was in Ketchikan where we did a 5k. There was an option for a 10k too.
Meghann and I did an excursion in Ketchikan where we saw a bunch of totem poles. Pretty cool.
The ship arrived in Vancouver on Friday morning and we stayed an extra day to tour the city.
Ever been kayaking? If so, will you do it again?
Total mileage for the week: 7.03 miles
