Week #2

Distance [km] Pace [min/km] Weight [kg]
Target 28
Actual 28 6:00 103.3

Second week was right on track. Both the faster pace and the non changing weight are kind of expected. In the past it always took me 4-6 weeks of running before seeing a consistent drop in weight. No real targets for the next week aside from hitting a full 30km total.

But the really story for this week are the wild animal sightings. Both a cougar and a bear family within 3 days is pretty unusual. But perhaps I perceive it as unusual because I haven’t been running at all lately. In any case, it was nice to have these kinds of encounters. Let’s see what the following weeks will expose…

Day #8

10km evening run

Longest run in distance and time in the last 6 months. And Mundy Park is pretty hilly, so it did take quite a bit out of me. I had to take 3 to 4 walking breaks to catch my breath. But if felt good to complete this run and I did have a sense of accomplishment. I am dead now and tomorrow will definitely be a recovery run.

Oh, and my second wildlife encounter in the recent past. First the cougar on Friday and today a bear family with one adult female and 2 cubs.
