Thetis Lake 1:30:10
Sunday, October 28, 2008
I sang for a good hour yesterday morning before the race (it went well!!) so I took the day off from singing and had a lazy morning before heading out to Thetis Lake to meet Pan-Pan for a trail run. We had the best time scooting around the gnarly paths, running the route we used to do when we ran with the Sunday IRR group with Rob leading the way. We have to get those runs going again…I miss those trails so much! It was surprisingly dry for this time of the year so the run was fantastic with just a bit of a slow-down as we picked our way through the horrible bramble that has taken over a section of trail near the hydro lines. We came out the other end with bloody scratches on our arms and legs. Otherwise, we kept a steady pace, chatting most of the way and did a small pick-up in the last 15 minutes. We got back in just over 70 minutes so I did a short out and back to do 90 minutes. My legs felt really good today so I had fun attacking the hills. Pan did a big hill run the day before but he was surprisingly perky.
