I have also started biking once a week now at least and for last few weeks I got close to 30K rides which helps cross train. I think that also has helped . We are planning to do ride at least once a week and try to slowly increase the bike distance by taking different routes. I want to balance running and biking and slowly increase the weekly mileage.
Today's 8K run was really good. Weather was perfect not too hot and not too cold for a run. We went all the way west to Strachan and than to Trinity Bell wood Park and back. I never run through the park actually never went inside during day time. It was nice to see people running walking around in the park and the community out there in uniquely different.
