I am a girl from Canada on a never ending quest to increase my running speed and distance through strength training and proper nutrition.

 

Run log September 30 - Come Hell or High Water (or Dog Poop)

Well I got back at it yesterday, I ran 8,1x13k. It was raining and I am coming off a 3 week cold complete with sinus infection, so it wasn’t the fastest I’ve ever run, at 1:32.38. But I did it! Unfortunately the rain sort of brought up the smell of dog poop and someone along the seawall decided to take all of the bags of dog poop out of the garbage cans and leave them on the pavement, so the environment wasn’t as serene as it normally is. With the rain and the dog poop smell it was quite a feat, so I’m happy I got out there. Even if it drained my energy for the rest of the day :-) 

I’m still tired, so this is all I’m going to write for now. But suffice it to say that I’m back in the game!
