2 More Races For My Sched!

After going for a nice 4.70 km run on the T-Mill, I decided today was the day I register for two more races. The Harry Rosen Spring Run Off 8K on April 2nd, 2011 and The GoodLife Toronto Half Marathon on May 15, 2011. Yep, I have the half marathon bug. I’m thinking I will do the Scotiabank Toronto Half in October as well, but I haven’t fully committed myself to that one yet!

Gus and My Race-Runners Laces

Today’s run was pretty good. I was exhausted again before my run but decided I had to do it. I want to say “I tied up my laces and went” but that would be a lie. I started using race-runners so that I don’t have to double know my laces and have big floppy laces on my shoes and I love them! Gus wanted to model them for you so I let him. As I waited for a machine I stretched while a fellow gym member took a leisurely walk on the t-mill without breaking a sweat. That’s not irritating at all. Once I jumped on the t-mill I gave it a good workout. Not a long one- but a good one! I decided once I hit 20 minutes I was dunzo. And I made it to 4.7 KM in 20 minutes. Not bad seeming as I could feel my aching muscles from yesterday’s boot camp. I could really feel how much I worked my abs during this run and it was really nice to feel my strong core. I really need to add another day of weight training during my weekly workout. It makes me feel like a superhero. Not really but that sounds impressive. Right? I’m just a little Mighty Mouse!

  1. The half marathon bug is the best. I think that they are the perfect distance. Long enough to really push your body to the limit, but not too far to wipe you out for weeks.

    Good luck with the races!

  2. Thanks, I'm pretty excited! I'm loving the half marathon distance but one day I will really put myself through that marathon challenge just to see how it feels.
