Had a nice cold 7k in the snow on Wednesday. My Canada Geese friends in the pic were out there again near the war memorial for company, likely wondering where all the warm temps went that they heard about on the flight up here!
Saturday’s 14.5 km group run took us through the ritzy part of town past massive homes of music artists like Drake and Prince (at least where he used to live), then down along the railroad tracks and some parks and trails. Loving discovering all these new routes.
With regards to the runs themselves they both went quite well. The pace is still improving for reasons I’m not totally sure of. Managed my fastest ever 5k at 29.16 on Wed, during the 7k run. Considering I could not crack sub 30 since my c25k training, I am happy with that. Last Saturday in the group run we did 17k at 6:16 which, even a few weeks ago was completely unheard of for me. And this Saturday was around 6:20 pace for the 14.5, so it seems to be more or less consistent now. I am trying to pay close attention to my legs and pains etc, but so far, things feel ok. Next week we are ending our long run with a Pancake breakfast with local Maple Syrup - looking forward to that!
