Day 14: 3.5 mile run through Glenmore Reservoir with Wedgie

Today we had an awesome run through Glenmore Reservoir.

We started at 8:30 a.m (the earliest I have run in a long time) but it was nice and cool. We decided to be adventurous and go the opposite direction on the trail; it was a mistake (kind of). Besides seeing the bear warning signs, we learned after about 2km that it was a tad hillier than we had anticipated. Neither of us were particularly interested in hill training today, so we decided we’d run out 4km and run back the next 1.; then walk the remainder (which turned out to be a little more than 2km). When all was said and done, I felt great! A little more sweaty than usual, but it was a really nice run; didn’t feel like we were even in the city.

I also continued with my “Project Morning” and said good morning to pretty much everyone I could. People are definitely more friendly on Sunday mornings I think. Not sure why? Just seemed that way. Maybe more laid back; out for the enjoyment? Lots of smiles today, anyway.

Anyway, thanks to Susan for being an awesome running partner today. And for anyone else out there who wants to do group runs on Sunday, let me know (aka: Lorrainne & Andrea)

Here are todays stats:

  • Distance: 5.6 km
  • Time: 37:15
  • Pace/Km: 6:39
  • Best Pace: 6:04

I also wanted to include this picture from the bridge. It was a gorgeous morning – nothing a beautiful as running along the Bras dOr Lakes, but pretty nice for landlocked Alberta.

P.S: Wanted to share this article: Is pregnancy an ‘excuse’ to let yourself go? with any moms out there. What do you think? I think it’s total bollocks.
