Sunday long Run, Training run… Running on Sunday then relaxing and watching The Amazing race and apprentice! 15.5 miler
15.5 miles down… Ran it in 2:01 (a little too fast for a LSD) 7:51 miles…
Was expecting a possible heat wave. The weather forecasters have been all over the map predicting the weather for today as some said it would reach 10, others said 5, a few predicted rain and so on and so on… it just proves the best weather forecast is opening the blinds.
It was warm, about 6 degrees celsius however the wind was also howling. First thoughts; Oh great. Winds were SW 25km/h (which is better than if they were northerly) with gusts @ 50km/h, good training as you never know what the forecast will bring on race day…
I brought the toque, and I wore the tights (which was pretty near perfect temperature wise) slipped on the gloves and zipped up the jacket.Had a clif bar before stepping out the door… The route was hilly but hills and Nova Scotia go hand in hand. This entire province is like a huge hill so you really can’t avoid them.
The run all in all was better than expected. Hit a little bit of a low point with about 4 miles to go (this is where I started listening to my Mp3) got smacked in the face by some consistent wind gusts and climbed a few hills. Misjudged (even with the Garmin) the turn around point and ended up walking the last mile cause I was hit 15.5 early lol. Enjoyed the walk!
Glad to be finished, glad to have gotten outdoors… Relaxing for the rest of the day!
