Monday Long Run

The schedule called for a day off because of 'Family Day" but it called for a 26k run tomorrow. I figured I'd rather be pooped and maybe have a nap on Family day, so I did that run today.

Nadia, Frank and I headed out from Timberlane at about 7:15 and ran straight out Vandorf to hwy 48 and back. There must have been a bit of a breeze from the west because it sure got a lot colder when we turned around at the highway!

We ran a nice easy pace, about 6:36/km - total distance was 27k, but we couldn't see turning around 500 meters from the highway. I guess we went a bit quick. I see my average heart rate was 133 - a bit high!

Water bottles froze on the way out so I was under nourished and under hydrated. It was a painful finish, but we did it!

Frank and I are talking about how cool it is to run what at one time was a good long bike ride distance. At some time this spring, we want to run our to the highway, but add the loop around the lake as well. That will be a 37k run I think.

Hey coach - can we add that in somewhere? :-)

Back to the club for a good round of stretching and e-Mend drinking. I didn't have any extra energy to do any more weights today!
