As a quick reminder, the goal is a sub 1:50 half at Oakville, or, failing that, at Road 2 Hope. So that's a 5:12/km pace but I want to have a bit of a buffer in there so I'll be aiming for 5:09/5:10.
Monday: 9.5k easy. Normally Monday is a rest day, but I had to start my ragweed allergy shots blah blah blah boring details omitted so I got in an easy run before heading off to the doctor.
|Suck it, ragweed.|
|Breakfast smoothies. We are going through SO much frozen fruit and raw spinach these days. Still need to find a non-revolting protein powder, though.|
|This is where I was going to put a sweaty mid-run selfie, but they came out so badly that I think they might make people go blind, so here's a picture of a bunny instead.|
|Huh, so the slightly above your head selfie angle thing really does work.|
Saturday: 50k bike ride. Actually closer to 60 but my watch went a bit nuts at the beginning of the ride and lost a few km. If your watch doesn't record it, does it really happen?
|This picture makes me laugh. I have no idea why I'm staring off into the distance all DEADLY SERIOUS. Photo credit: Irina.|
|Kim has mad selfie taking skills, even if we did make the rest of the group wait for 5 minutes while we got this one perfect. With Nicole and Sam. Photo via instagram.|
Sunday: Planned a 20k trail run, but things went sideways almost immediately when my planned route was blocked off by a bigass locked gate. I regrouped and found another trail entrance but it didn't really get things started on the right note.
|I did see deer, so that was kind of cool. Nature!|
|I need to come back and start with this section, way more fun stuff here than the sidetrail.|
|Old Guelph Road. Nice and quiet, but HILLZ. The cyclists I saw climbing up looked like they were working pretty hard.|
|So sweaty! But I found the Bruce Trail head office. So that's neat.|
The upcoming week figures some big excitement - my husband is home with the kids so I can bike commute at least once to work, which will help log a few more cycling km. Oh, and I might just be doing a few cycling km on my NEW ROAD BIKE which I am getting fitted for and bringing home in a few hours. Happy birthday to me!
