Back to Commuting

Today was my first day back at work following the birth of my daughter nearly three weeks ago. Being back at work means that I will resuming my routine of running home from work in the evening.

Running home from work is how I fit in most of my weekday mileage. Tonight’s plan was for an easy 8-10 km run. I ended up doing just that by covering 9 km in 44 minutes. Due to freezing rain overnight and this morning the conditions were wet and slippery. Here is what the conditions looked like when I left for work this morning…

Fortunately the conditions were a little better this evening although I was glad I decided to bring my trail running shoes with me. Due to the Gore-Tex lining I managed to make it home with dry feet which would not have happened with my regular shoes.

While the late night runs were a good way to fit in runs while I was off work I prefer my evening runs home from work. Once again I will be back to commuting home from work for the majority of my weekday miles.

  1. do you still run along that path thru vincent massey park along the rideau river? is it plowed during winter? I’ve been sticking to the canal which is plowed/salted, but wondering if there are alternatives.

    1. I have not tried the path through Vincent Massey since we got snow and only found out about that path this year. I keep meaning to run by and check. I will cehck it out soon as I too tend to stick to the canal in the winter.
