DAY who the heck cares!?
Sooooo...how did it go? This isn't one of my rhetorical questions, we really want to know! Please comment or DM to tell us about your race experience.
Also, you really shouldn't take that "Rest Day" part too seriously. Unless you are injured, continuing to move through the stiffness and soreness will actually make it go away faster and helps to keep your fitness longer. Take it easy, wear comfy shoes and compressive clothes but try to do more than chill in a horizontal coma.
Also, I will start some albums up on the Facebook group (link in bio) so we can share some photos.
Thank you for following along on this journey....I'm super proud of you!

DAY 97 - RACE DAY!!
Psssssst...hey you...the one reading this right now...are you excited? Are you scared? Are you wondering if you can do this? Here's a secret: YOU CAN!
I am so proud of each and every one of you for even toeing the line. Today will be hard but it should also be fun, that's the best combination if you ask me!
A few final tips for today:
1๏ธโƒฃ Be Kind - tensions may run high this morning. Be gracious
2๏ธโƒฃ Keep it clean - please don't throw any trash on the ground. If throwing your gel packet on the seawall is required for you to hit your goal time, you don't deserve it.
3๏ธโƒฃ Say Thank You - thank the volunteers, staff, or anyone who helps you today. When you feel tired out there, shouting a "Thank You Volunteers" will actually give YOU a boost of energy. ..

DAY 96 - RACE DAY EVE!!!
Whooooot! We've been training our butts off for months. Don't throw it away now by overextending yourself today.
Hit up one of the three yoga sessions in Jack Poole Plaza. Remember to drink lots of fluids and don't eat anything crazy.
Also, try to eat dinner early so you can "process" everything before the race tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ฌ!
Please come up and say hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ if you see us walking around and be sure to meet Jen and the rest of the Pace Beavers at 1:10 at the MEET YOUR BEAVER event. ..

DAY 95 - STRENGTHEN YOUR STRIDE
I think it's safe to assume today is a travel day for the majority of you. The goal for today is to get your heart rate up and keep things loose. Sprinting through the airport does not count! In fact, travel day can be one of the most "dangerous" pre-race situations. You're schlepping a heavy bag, often favoring one side more than the other only to get wedged into a toddler sized airplane seat for hours. Even if you're driving, you are not immune thanks to the increased sitting time. Combine all of this with travel food and the tendency to not drink enough water and we've got a recipe for sabotage.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
โ€ขDrink extra water
โ€ขStand up and stretch every 45-60 minutes
โ€ขDon't overload your bag or spring for a luggage cart
โ€ขWear light compression leggings or socks โ€ขDo seat stretches like rolling your ankles, IT band "table tops", upper back
If you can squeeze in some of the MOVR app workout, that's ideal.
Safe travels, see you in VanCity! ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

DAY 94 - INTERVALS 6x30 Seconds
So it may seem super strange to do intervals at this point in the game but these intervals aren't full out sprints, rather they are quick "pick-ups" to mix things up and remind your body that you're capable of different speeds. These are actually a great replica of slowing down slightly to grab a water or take your gel, then having to get back up to race pace.
Keep it nice & easy! You're not setting records here, it's just about being able press on the gas when the moment arises.
THE WORKOUT:
10 minutes Warm Up
30 seconds - slower than race pace
60 seconds - easy peasy pace {repeat for a total of 6 times}
10 minutes Cool Down
Total time=29ish miles ..

DAY 93 - YOGA + SHOPPING
What's that? You don't see shopping on your schedule? Trust me, this one is important. Seawheeze is not your typical half marathon and the Showcase Store is nothing like any other race expo. You CANNOT purchase gus, gels, blocks, glide, etc or any of those other items usually for sale at packet pick-up. Trust me when I tell you that I learned this one the hard way, forgetting to pack my gel and sport beans and thinking "I'll just pick something up when I get there". There are a few running stores around town but they are not particularly close to the convention center. Also, there's no guarantee that they'll have your favorite brand or flavor.
So today's important task is to purchase your nutrition and hydration stuff now and bring it with you so we can practice our mantra of "Nothing New On Race Day". ..

DAY 92 - EASY RUN 45 Minutes
This is really our last REAL run before race day but that doesn't mean you should turn on the afterburners. Keep things nice and conversational to avoid getting sore.
Also start thinking about your diet and nutrition. Even though we're still a few days from the race, an upset stomach early in the week can leave you dehydrated. Also, travel schedules and new foods can easily mess with your umm...poop pattern. Hold off on getting that massive plate of poutine until Saturday afternoon! ..

DAY 91 - YOGA
Your favorite practice.
No recovery run? I'm not sure why not. We are keeping things easy because it's race week. I would say if you're itching for a little run, cap it at 3 miles and keep it very easy. If not, do a nice and easy yoga session. Don't do anything that may leave you sore. ..

DAY 90 - LONG RUN!
ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!
Only a 10k today as our long run and you should keep it super chill. No race pace (save it for next week) , in fact, It should almost feel ridiculously slow. The goal for today to to get out there, keep those muscles working and joints loose. It's also a great day to do one last test of equipment. Try on your race outfit, will you wear a hat or sunglasses or both? Do you run with water or take what's on course. Did you buy enough of your favorite gel or gummies? Remember: nothing new on race day!

DAY 88 - STRENGTHEN YOUR STRIDE
Today we're going to jump back over to the MOVR app (it's free and it's really helpful) for an easy Strengthen Your Stride workout. The goal for today is to focus on mobility and making sure you don't have any tight or sore spots. Remember, the goal is to keep things relaxed and easy between now and race day.
THE WORKOUT
โ€ข OPENING (4-5 mins)
โ€ข ACTIVATION (2mins)
โ€ข EXERTION (6mins) - repeat 3x (total 18 mins)
โ€ข RE-OPENING (6mins)

Total time = 30ish minutes.

DAY 87 - INTERVALS

Today's workout should be the last one to make you physically exhausted or sore. During strenuous exercise, you're actually creating microtears in your muscles.
The soreness is a result of your body repairing these tears and as those repairs are made, you get inflammation and the result is a tiny bit more muscle than you had before. (did someone say GAINZ!?).
Because making these repairs takes energy and soreness can change the way we move, it's important to make sure all repairs are made well in advance of race day.
Okay, that's a very basic lesson on why we're gonna keep things chill after today.
.
THE WORKOUT
10 minute warm-up
2 minute strides
60 second interval at mile pace (almost max effort)
2 minute easy recovery jog/walk
โ€ขโ€ขRepeat 2 more times (3x total)โ€ขโ€ข
10 minute cool down
TOTAL TIME= 30ish minutes.

DAY 86 - YOGA
The focus of the week is RESTORATION. If you stuck with the workouts as outlined in the plan, you've been taxing your body quite a bit. Now is the time to let your body heal while maintaining fitness so that it all comes together as a well-rested, well-trained machine. Today should be a nice and easy flow yoga, Pilates, or PT session. Starting today you want to avoid any activity which will leave you sore. That doesn't mean you can't lift or spin or do any of your normal cross-training, just keep things routine. No new skills or weight increases until after race day.

DAY 85 - EASY RUN - 45 Minutes
Let's talk about TAPER TANTRUMS! When mileage is building, it's common to dream about tapering (when you reduce your weekly mileage instead of increasing). The surprising reality is that it's easy to feel crummy during your taper. Easy runs feel hard, you run thin on patience, and it feels like you should be running more than you are. Just know this is completely normal and now is the time to trust your training. Today's easy 45 should be chill and conversational but it may feel harder than it should. Don't panic, it's a part of the process. Do you have a taper tantrum story? Tell us in the comments! ..

DAY 84 - YOGA or RECOVERY RUN
Today is another "choose your own adventure" day based on what you did yesterday. If you did 21k like the plan calls for (๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰) then you should take it super easy and do a chill yoga sesh. You're in MAJOR recovery mode between now and race day. You put your body through a lot yesterday so it's important you do everything in your power to make sure you're fresh for race day.
If you did a chill 16k (or something around there) you should do an easy recovery run and also some yoga/stretching. Your next two weeks are about recovery + maintenance. With your long run last week, you've had more time to recover so you have a bit more flexibility. ..
