Spring may almost be ready to wake from her slumber in these parts as it has warmed up this morning and we'll get up to a balmy 9°C (48°F)…there is rain mind you, but that's part of spring I suppose. We'll take it!
The forecast looks alright for our Sunday race, 7°C (45°F) and mainly sunny…excellent running conditions. Hopefully we won't have too much wind coming in off the lake. The course is 30K (about 19 miles), which is quite an odd distance…the first 20K is described as fast and scenic, but the last 10K "includes rolling hills". Apparently the race director's idea of "rolling" is this reporter's idea of "brutal".
Well, at least the weather should be better than that! I also just found out that one of my brother's friend's is running the race as well…Boyd is a Leukemia survivor and is running for awareness of the OneMatch Bone Marrow Registry. There's a story and a short clip on the CHCH News site here, take a look. Good luck Boyd!
I've been taking care of the foot and it feels really good…I'm ready to run but not going to do anything until race day. Just keep icing and playing foot tennis.
I've had a couple rides on the trainer this week, one while Michelle and Kennedy were watching TV and I really busted some ass and the other where I decided to play some Disney Infinity with Jackson and I kinda forgot I was on the bike and was barely pedaling at some points. We'll call that a recovery ride
If you remember back to a couple weekends ago I did the MEC Race and got dressed up for St Patrick's Day. Well one of the ladies here at work came to me and said she saw me in the newspaper running in a striped shirt…I had no idea. I went online and found the article, can you spot me?
I'll be back in the pool again today giving 1600m a try…that's a whole mile! Hopefully all the flooding around here holds off and I won't have to swim my way back to work afterwards (rain + snow melt = high river in London).
Have you ever been in the newspaper before? What for?
I was another time too, as a tuxedo model in a bridal special of all things
Any exciting plans for the weekend? Who's racing?
