It's getting dark later now, which is completely awesome! I however, still don't usually get out until dark because I always get Lola's fitness in after work first. Her fitness is pretty much a walk around the subdivision and lots of begging for food, lol.
We've been so lucky this winter with the weather!!! There have been very few runs so far where ice/snow, etc. have interfered with training.
I got NEW SHOES!!!!!!!! Thank you Mizuno!
They are Wave Rider 21s like my last pair but in a different colour, which is very cool!
We had another Jog and Joe last weekend in Clayton Park and the route was basically down and then up a mountain...slight exaggeration, but it was tough!
Our long run Squad keeps growing! Rachael is also training for Boston and lives super close by so she has joined Marg, Stacey and I on a few long runs.
I got so many nice goodies from Tiux!!!!! I can't wait until it's shorts weather so I can sport my new socks!
My Garmin goes a million shades of crazy inside the Canada Games Centre even when the gps is off so my pace is NEVER accurate, sigh.
Lindsay's husband came by and snapped some cool shots last week (Valentine's Day) of our suffer fest provided by Coach Ian.
Thank goodness Matt and I celebrated again with Heart-Shaped pizza from Boston Pizza.
Okay, LOL...it was our 100th day of school on Friday and this has nothing to do with training, but my students and I dressed up like we were 100 years old and it was soooooo fun!
I ordered two pairs of the Dino Shades from goodr and I LOVE them!
They are only $25!!!
I have to tell you that I finally made the Sweet Potato Breakfast cookies from my Run Fast Eat Slow cookbook at Christine's recommendation and they are so good! You should definitely get this book if you haven't already.
Marg and I headed out super duper early yesterday morning to get in our long run before Sam's baby shower and it started out great! Then as the snow got deeper the paces got slower and the miles got tougher!
We took total advantage of the trail while it was still in good running condition even though we were the only ones on it so early! I think Marg was a little spooked for animals, lol.
By the time we were almost done we looked like this:
My legs and hips are incredibly sore today!
I closed out this past week with 54.7 miles (88.1 km) and I'm so happy with how my body is holding up. Jeff continues to remind me how important maintenance is!
How is training going for you?
Can you believe Boston is only 8 weeks away?!??!
Thanks for checking in!
