Tuesday night is team practice and normally our hilly mile loops but because this weekend is OTTAWA RACE WEEKEND (aka, one of the most insane weekends for runners here in Ottawa) and most of the team is racing in one of the events (5k, 10k, half or full marathon), we had a taper workout…but let’s be clear, it’s not an easy workout.
5k warmup, then 5 x 600m downslopes with jog back (uphill) recovery and then 5k cool down. The average downslope pace was 3:30min/km (5:36 min/mi).
Um, can we talk about my ever increasing shoe obsession. I bought these the other day…
So, it’s cold here again…like, I wear a hat, mitts and scarf in the morning cold. The one good thing about that?
On the weekend Abby got a much needed bath (you’ve seen how much time she spends lying on the dusty road on her back, right?) and because her fur is so thick it takes FOREVER to dry so I got fed up and tried to take the hair dryer (on low) to her. The video below shows how it went:
It’s hard to see because my arm was in the way, but she is basically snarling at me the whole time. LOL.
This pic was taken a while ago, but so shows her personality (if it wasn’t obvious already)…
