What can I say? I am still on track and in line with my training plan. Running is starting to feel a little easier, but I still feel hills pretty badly. I am also proud that I ran with the clinic this week. Definitely will try to make this a regular habit. Next week will be interesting as I will bump up my Sunday run from 12 to 15 km. Still not really a long run, but I am slowly considering the extra time on my feet.

Day #16

12 km afternoon run

Ran 3 loops around Mundy Park. This is was probably by honest run since I started again as I did not stop even once and pushed on the last third of the workout. It took the first loop to get into it, but after the first hills and getting my heart rate I started feeling good. The only think I noticed is that both my feet were numb during almost the full second loop. I think the shoes I am running in are a tad tight 0r I am just not used to it. Also, I felt some slight chafing in the my left groin. But I stop noticing both on the last loop. Overall a really good run and the mileage didn’t feel too hard. But I will surely feel the hills tonight and tomorrow.

Oh, I nearly stepped on a squirrel. It ran across the path in front of my and suddenly decided to stop right in front of me. I actually had to jump a little to not hurt it. First time I had this issue.
