Soooooo...I was hoping to get back into regular running this week, but then the nasty weather showed up. Too hot to walk the dog most days, let alone go for a run. We did have a fairly active week though -
Saturday - Summer cleaning frenzy - I tackled my bedroom. Fun times.
Later, 2K+ dog park walk at High Park. There were a few tense moments on this one - the trails wind around the amphitheatre where A Midsummer Night's Dream is staged every evening, and the cast had left a few gates open to come and go during the performance . Stella noticed...went through the gate...trotted over towards stage left...looked around...watched the audience for a bit...thought things over...and eventually tiptoed back to us without actually interrupting the performance. Phew!
|Good girl. Don't do that again, K?|
|Remains of an old mill, founded in 1867. Very fitting to be checking it out on Canada Day. |
If you're wondering - yes, my son did jump off from where he's standing.
Tuesday - 2.5K brisk dog walk after dark. Too hot to run. Ugh.
Wednesday - Went to the gym for a boot camp. Ana made us run laps around the gym to make up for the lack of outdoor running.
Thursday - Day off, but an NSV: I went shopping for a new hot-weather outfit to wear to work and found that I've gone down a size. WOOHOO!
Friday - Went to the gym for another sweaty boot camp. More laps. And sprints. Waited until after dark to walk the dog - was still very humid but we managed 1s and 1s for 2.1K. Felt oh, so good to run and I'm oh, so glad that we kept it short. I was drenched by the time we got back!
How did this week's weather impact your training plans?
