So after a few days of struggling to get up early, I finally managed it this morning! By 7’ish I was fuelled up and out the door. I just ran the old neighbourhood route because I know it well and wasn’t interested in fumbling through a new place. The sidewalks were pretty great except for Acadia Drive – there’s a long strip of sunken sidewalk which was nothing but a skating rink. Absolutely terrifying. Instead of slowing down I just hit the ice full tilt and slid (kind of fun, actually.)
I should have prefaced this post by saying that I absolutely did not want to run this morning. In fact, I was rolling my eyes as I put my sneakers on thinking about the things I would have done in order not to go. But I did. And I had an awesome run with a wicked time! Now, my times aren’t as fast as they were in the summer (5:45 min/km’ish) but I’m starting to speed up again – maybe because the end of winter is nearing? (HAH!) I also got my time down to 3:57/km for a little bit too – very exciting!
- Distance: 5:08 km
- Time: 30:59
- Pace: 6:06
- Best Pace: 3:57
Hope everyone is happy and healthy out there!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
