Weekend Runs – 2018 September 1 & 2

It has been a great weekend for running. The forerunner cool ahead of Autumn arrived with September, so heating from the run hasn’t been as pronounced.

Saturday I was able to have a faster run and today I ran out the Chain of Lakes Trail and on to the Beechville-Lakeside-Timberlea Trail. The latter trail is beautiful and I would like to do a longer run out it soon.

Sunday 20K

I ran 20km from my home in Halifax, across the bridge, through Dartmouth and out to Eastern Passage this morning. It was my longest run in nearly 2 years and I was happy with it even though my pace was higher than I am used to. I plan to take longer runs like this to prepare for the marathon I’ll be running in September.

It was nice to go past some unusual sights for this run, including the odd pig on a bench in the photo on this post.

Run – 2018 August 5

I spent the weekend working from my couch, so runs to start my Saturday and end my Sunday were essential. It felt so good to get out running tonight and move after staring at a screen so long. My weekend pace below 5:00 held even though I felt a bit sluggish at first.

Run – 2018 July 15

I’ve been happy with my weekend runs. I’ve been able to maintain a pace below 5:00 fairly regularly since switching to forefoot running, and I’m feeling good about ramping up ahead of running a marathon for the first time in September.
