Just 3 more sleeps to the big day!
Last weekend we embarked on our last training run. It was not a good one. I definitely found my limit regarding my body-chemistry issues. We headed out to Allen Bill pond to run towards West Bragg Creek. As soon as we started running, I felt the exhaustion and tiredness; and the moment I got about 10 steps up the first hill, my legs were on fire, stiff, and lacking mobility. I managed to barely muscle through it (we cut it short); the dip in the river afterwards was numbing but great.
Since Saturday, I have focused on recovery and fueling. I’m now focused on eating enough, and wrapping up chores/errands/etc in preparation for 8 days away from home!
Here are some pics from Saturday’s run:
