Route: trails and roads past Jim B’s, and almost colonial acres neighbourhoods – loop
Distance: 3.01 m
Weather: 18C, sunny, cool, beautiful fall day
Wildlife: none, unless you count the woman hiding in the bushes off one of the paths…
Notes: Tonight felt great! Blue shorts were great, blue shoes were great, no tummy issues, legs felt generally pretty good. A bit stiff to start and calves are a bit achy now but pretty good all in all. Perfect temperature for a run in a long sleeve. It was like bounding out there tonight; I thought I could go forever. I was pretty chuffed when I thought I’d done a 8:42 mile but… then I realized that ‘lap 4’ was 30 ft long, not a mile… but I did those 30 ft at Boston qualifying pace!
Tonight I felt like the running gods were smiling on me. Makes me want to go out for more!
Today, I read about the Tri-City Track Club. Not sure whether I’m ready yet but it’s definitely what I need to improve. I really enjoyed structured practices (way back) in highschool and I’m competitive. The combination of practices, structure, and teammates would be a great combination for me but right now I don’t think I’ve got enough of a base to make the jump.
There is a new knitting project on deck for this weekend if I can find some suitable yarn in time. Tomorrow is stitch ‘n’ bitch night so must run in the am. LM, hope you feel like running!
Note to self – get some ColdFX ASAP possible.
