Sunny Sunday Seawall
More running. No injuries. All is good.

On Sunday, Erica and I (both recovering from injuries) only did 15km instead of the 26 the rest of the group did. I felt ok (other than the nipple chafe from the rain), but didn’t want to push it.

I was disappointed when the Vega rep cancelled his guest lecture for our running group on Tuesday. I showed up early all set to get some sweet samples and impress him with my knowledge of the Thrive Diet. But the rep got the flu. Obviously he’s not a real vegan, as real vegans are immune to disease.

Instead we went out and did a hard hill workout at Queen Elizabeth Park. I killed it. Not only did I run them quickly, but more importantly, consistently – my 6 reps up the hill were between 2:02 and 2:05.

I’m really enjoying the runner’s yoga course. Lots of stretching of the hamstrings, strengthening of the core, and the dreaded plank position.
