I managed to get in two runs today. Both runs allowed me to take advantage of great weather and to get in extra mileage today. Following yesterday’s tempo run both of today’s runs were relaxed efforts.
The first run came over the lunch hour. I decided to head out with some work colleagues and since we work close to the Central Experimental Farm we headed that way for the run. The is the first time I have done this but I found the lunchtime run to be a great way to break up the day. The rest of the afternoon seemed to go by quicker than it usually does following the run. I could see this option becoming a regular addition to my training.
Here are the details on run #1
Run # 2 was my usual thursday night group run. Again tonight’s effort was a relaxed pace. Sticking to the Rideau Canal we managed to get in just over 10 km in less than an hour.
Here are the details on run #2
Overall I managed to get in 16.6 km today which will make it possible for me to get up to 80 km for the week. Since today’s efforts were pretty relaxed I think I will aim for another tempo run tomorrow.
