Heading into last week of taper…. Woohoo…. Hills will be alive!!!!!! Bluenose Marathon 2011


I got in 5 miles of running on Friday, 4 miles today… Threw in some hills this morning, but wanted to keep it easy. That puts the weeks total at 33 miles, a nice odd number of running miles.

I was reaquainted with our hilly marathon route on Friday when I decided to do a nice, easy run on part of the course. Ran from the 8k to the 12k part of the course which included a nice 1k, steep, incline and a couple noticeable rollers… Boston is known to be a hilly, challenging marathon, while the one we have here actually makes Boston look like a cake walk. That is not an exaggeration…

I am hoping the rain stays away today… Currently we have over-cast skies. The sun is supposed to peak out which would be a bonus after many consecutive days of rain…

Cheers
