IMG_9681Tempo run is now 8 km.  Every week it keeps getting longer.   I’m on track and VERY happy with how I’m running. I was tired when I finished this workout.  I completed the 8kms 4:35 pace.  RIGHT ON TARGET!   It was an amazing and celebrated by one in the field which was me.  When I look back at my splits it seems like my second last kilometer is always the slowest for some reason.  Anyways I finished stronger than I started with a 4:23.  Not too bad, lets see what next week brings.

IMG_9951On Saturday I finished a few showings that I had in the afternoon and decided I would to see how my buddy Steve was doing at the dirty girls endurance race.  He was running 12 hour race which is a 8 km loop in the Duffern Forest at Mansfield.  The did extremely well and I am very proud of him.  Steve is my crazy ultra marathoner buddy from Orangeville.

My long run on Sunday was 26 km.   I was running it in Orangeville and again I was feeling excited about this run.  We started off from the Alder Rec Center and we made are way down to Townline across town line all the way over to Island Lake.  Around Island Lake cross the new bridges ,which are very cool.

The right past my work and then all the way up Hanson which was a hill then down blind line to Broadway across Broadway and weaved our way back to where we started through the subdivisions.  It was a good run really happy with the way I handled all of that elevation gain.  There was a lot of it again!  Bam another is DONE!.. Lets see what happens next week.
