It's been a while since I blog'ed about how my training was going for #STWM 2015. My life got busy and sucked out all the free time I use to have. It did not stop the training though. I am still on target to run in #STWM 2015.
I missed my last few long run's - Mostly due to races that I had signed up. The Night race was really fun this year. The weather was opposite of last years cold and wet night. It was super hot and even at 8pm humid and hot. Luckily I was not running 10K this year and it was just 5K.
The other race that I ran this Sunday was the B&O Yorkville 5K. The swag this year was again really good, actually better because I can use everything from it already. This run was really memorable. I reached on time but for some reason I thought that race started at 10:00am. So I ignored all the people lined up for the run went inside and took a stroll. 5 mins later heard the noise of people running and only to find that they were removing the barricades put for the race.
Finally this Sunday I got back to my scheduled long run's and it was 18K. I was slow but I was lot better than I was at this stage last year. There is a slight pain in the calf muscle but this time it is mostly due to the long run and no injury. I also had a busy day after the run and over body is recovering faster. This time we went a bit more west for the long run. Normally we would do the loop around Bloor and Bathrust to keep the distance on west short. This time it was all along the scenic MTG trail. It was really fantastic morning to run, with cool breeze and sun in the sky. I even took a selfie when I turn'ed around.
The weather is not getting any better for running. Tuesday , Wednesday and today it was hot and humid. The shorter runs were ok as it was short but today's run was not that great. we went to Cherry beach loop and man I was almost done at the half way point. Luckliy there running half marathon race to they had a check point with water and that helped a lot.
