One of my 1o in 2010 goals is to run the around the bay race in March. The race is 30 km (18.6 mi) so we need to do a lot of training if we want to finish the race on our legs and not crawling towards the finish line. Each Saturday we have to do a long run. LOOOONG. This morning I was laying in bed listening to the news and I heard that it was -15 degrees outside and the city was issuing a cold alert. awesome. what a perfect day to spend an hour and forty minutes outside running.
But…we pushed through. After bagels with almond butter, honey and banana, we hit the road.
-quick dry pants
-under armor shirt
-dry fit t shirt
– another long sleeve dry fit shirt
It’s a beautiful day outside and I know I would have chosen to hibernate inside if it weren’t for our horribly hard training plan. We ran 10.1 miles in an hour and 40 minutes .
Here is the after math:
The rest of the weekend is packed–off to eat egg “mc”muffins made by Ollie, then we have to clean our apartment, head to guelph for a fun dinner with friends!
And then on to Sunday…gosh, I love weekends!
