|The Trans Canada Trail is Awesome! Yes, my head is almost better.|
Monday- 12.20 miles, 1:37, Boulder Creek bike path, 350ft
Tuesday AM- 11.03 miles, 1:13, 162Av Hr, 300ft 7 mile tempo on the bike path. Felt better than I thought I would on this workout. A little up and down for hills, some snow and ice on and off slowed things down a touch. Splits: 6:01, 6:07, 6:09, 5:54, 5:44, 5:50, 5:45
Tuesday PM- 4.32 miles, :33, 141Av Hr
Wednesday- 12.53 miles, 1:42, 138Av Hr, 550ft, Wonderalnd fun
Friday AM- 10.36 miles, 500ft, 138Av Hr, 8 X 600 Meter repeats with 600 meter jogs with general mobility. Ran a under dressed cold/breezy one way speed workout run with the help of my awesome father in law Patrick. Very scenic run along lake fronts and forest. Happy with the splits considering the less than flat terrain and being really cold for the first few: 5:55, 5:16, 5:12, 5:21, 5:08, 5:11, 5:01, 5:08.
Friday PM- 4.96 miles, :41, 200ft, epic trails through the hemlock, maple, pine, beech, birch forest along the muskoka river. I LOVE running the 20+ miles of trail at the door step of the Kernohan cabin along the Muskoka river in Bracebridge Ontario.
Saturday- 30.02 miles, 4:15, 134Av Hr, 1,500ft, long run adventure! Ran from the doorstep through the trails on the Muskoka river to the "Trans Canada Trail" system. It was an adventure. The Trans Canada Trail is awesome around Bracebridge. Great forests, creeks, wildlife and solitude. I did a sort of out and back with some mix-ups and challenges following the trail. Last 4 miles were rough. It was 2 degrees (Farenheight) at the start with about an hour of flashlight (yeah, no headlamp) running on trails and snow. I don't think it broke out of single digit temps for any of the 4+hrs. My Nathan water pack worked perfect withthe tube in my coat, but I wasn't motivated to drink much. My EFS was very cold and slow to come out of the bottle and I only had about 3ish oz, so maybe 350 calories for the run. Awesome run.
Sunday-12.28 miles, 1:40, 300ft, further exploration of the Trans Canada Trail into Bracebridge including running over a bridge with a 50+ft by 40 foot waterfall. Awesome.
