Marathon Training: Week 3 Rewind

8 Aug

It’s time to ‘fess up. I was a bad runner this week. My long run on Saturday was supposed to be 17km but I came up 2km shy. Although I didn’t run the full 17km, I felt strong all throughout the run so I can’t say that it was a wasted training day.

The rest of my training days were fairly uneventful. I did not fall or see any old men yelling “bimbo!”

Saturday afternoon Mark and I spent the day in Toronto. We took the bus into the city and wandered around for hours. We walked through Chinatown, ate lunch in a hippie/granola market, spent a bit too much money on shoes in MEC and had delicious drinks by the water.

It wouldn’t be the end of the weekend without a Sunday night beer.
