I am leaving for P.E.I. and Nova Scotia. I am going home for the first time since Christmas 2007 so I am very excited. I am planning on taking 2 weeks away from the city and my hectic and pressured existence. I will also be out of electronic contact so no blogging until mid September.
Today I ran my Tuesday tempo. After a great weekend I was fired up to run my first workout without my cold. I think the cold still had an effect as I was a little sluggish. I ran 45 minutes in total at tempo pace at Jericho Park. I ran the loop that was used for the Canadian Cross Country Championships of 2006. Running a loop for a tempo is a little weird, and running a cross country loop even weirder. By the end of the tempo, although tired, I was racing against the best runners in the world in my mind. I may have pushed a bit too hard, yet again, but I am still pleased with the effort!
Tomorrow easy run, Thursday Workout then hop on a plane!
Happy Birthday Heather!
Trip report in September.
