I am hoping that this is my last weekend without any long runs. I am really starting to miss long runs, even the back-to-backs that come with ultra training. I think I’ll probably regret this statement in a couple of months but for now, all I want is to be able to run far! A couple days ago when I was complaining, Callum made a joke about how it sounded like I was addicted to heroin the way that I talk about not being able to run. But right now, all I want is to run and run and run!
Here are 4 things from my weekend:
- Long drives. We went to go visit our friends who live a couple of hours away. It was so nice to see them and to get out of the city even if it was only for a night.
- Muddy trails. I did get out for an 8km trail run and part of it was full of really muddy trails and the rest was just beautiful. I did it as a test for my foot, we’ll see how my foot feels tomorrow. I discovered a new trail while I was out there. I’ll definitely be going back to it because it tacks on at least another 1km each direction on my usual trail route. I love exploring the trails!
- Pizza. I might not be in heavy training but I still love carbs. I tried out this completely whole wheat pizza dough and it turned out so well, I definitely recommend it! Plus, it’s whole wheat so it’s healthy, right?
- Bootcamp classes. My gym only has morning classes on weekends which is great because it forces me out of bed. I dragged Callum to an 8:15am bootcamp class and it was tough to get up but I always feel so great after. It was a perfect way to start a weekend that involved lots of sitting in a car and eating.
How was your weekend? Any great trails or delicious food?
An update on the foot injury is coming soon! Next weekend, I am supposed to be running the Tannenbaum 10k in Toronto so my fingers are crossed that my foot will be all better by them.
