Half Marathon Training: Week 11
Another week very light on the training. I did some running where I could and focused on stretching and foam rolling afterwards, but didn't put in any cross training.
Monday: Clem and I spent part of Labour Day at his parents' place in Mississauga eating our weight in barbecue, so I was happy as a clam to put in a run with Lululemon's Queen Street Run Crew. It was rainy, and I was conscious of keeping my pace slower than usual. I followed it up with Yoga Moves for Runners and my physio exercises. [5.2 km | 32:35 | 6:13/km]
Friday: REST. Unless you count speed-walking from my office to Union Station to catch a train to Ottawa for the weekend.
Saturday: REST, but we had family friends visiting in Ottawa so there was a lot of walking and sight-seeing.
Sunday: Finally did a long-ish run! Managed to get in one of my favourite loops of the Rideau Canal before another full day of sightseeing and a train back to Toronto. [9.5 km | 1:01:21 | 6:25/km]
