Yesterday I got a 4 mi run in around my neighborhood in the afternoon. This run was noteworthy because I actually ran outside in shorts! The run was...ugh...kinda. The first mile was fine - probably because it was all downhill. Once I hit mile two my legs were complaining. They didn't want to run and my left shin was bugging me. Once I hit mile three I had a big uphill to tackle and that put me back on track as the hill felt pretty good. The last mile was uneventful. I haven't biked this week, partly due to time constraints and partly because I want to rest my legs a bit.
Anyhow...I'm off to Vancouver this afternoon and I can't wait! The weather in Calgary is supposed to be yucky this weekend - full of snow and cold weather. It is actually supposed to be sunny in Vancouver so it looks like I picked a good time to head out of town. I think I am well prepared for the trip:
- Race outfit picked out and packed
- Dining reservations done
- 4 mi run for Friday mapped out
- Plans with friends made
I am looking forward to eating copious amounts of seafood and indulging in some of Granville Island Brewing's best. And running, yes...I am looking forward to running!
