I am slow, clumsy and have no sense of direction. If I were a pessimist I would think the Universe is trying to tell me I can't be a runner. These three things definitely make running harder, but I am
stubborn persistent, and don't like to be told what I can and can't do especially by something as capricious as the Universe.
Tonight I set out from home to run down the Jolley Cut again. I figured it would be about 5.5 km there and back and I would run a little bit past home to make up to 7 km. I got down to the bottom and followed my 10/1 all the way from the start to all the way back up, which meant I only stopped once on the way back up - go me! It was definitely easier than when I did it on Friday night with Guenther.
On the way back from the trail, my stomach started hurting so I stopped at Tim Horton's to use the washroom. I turned off my app accidentally instead of pausing it :( No problem, I would just start a new run when I started back out again.
As I came out of Tim Horton's I tripped on the step at the door (this is the clumsy part!) and turned my foot. Thankfully not seriously, but I coudn't run on it, so I ended up walking the little more than 1 km home. Although I didn't do what I planned - run 6.0 km - I have still gone out 6 days in a row now which is pretty much an all time record and tomorrow is a new day! Today's total km = 5.79 km
Walk - 0.5 km warm up
Run - 3.88 km (10/1)
Walk - 1.37 km cool down after turning my foot
This is a view of the path on the Jolley Cut trail. It was a gorgeous night for a run, cool breeze, blue skies and lots of wispy clouds and sunshine.
