The end to the weekend was absolutely amazing. We hit 25C/77F by Sunday afternoon and I made sure to relax out on the back patio and soak up the warmth…but see where that arrow is pointing? Yeah, that’s still a pile of snow! lol
But as good as the end of the weekend was, most of it was pretty rough. Another allergy issue with my eyes – but now I know exactly what I’m allergic to and will NEVER GO NEAR IT AGAIN. It caused some blistering under my eyes and mega swelling…you don’t need to see a pic of it at its worse, but here’s one taken when it was it was a million times better.
Here is Lisa killing it in the 10 miler – she pulled off almost 7:14min/mi (4:30min/km) pace. Oh and she’s almost 51 years old. (Kathy, in black, is a teammate and ran Lisa in the last km)
Then we watched Spotlight…what a good and horrifying movie!
Sunday morning was by FAR the most beautiful day of 2016 here in Ottawa.
We did 21km at 8:09 min/mi (5:04 min/km) pace and enjoyed every minute of the blistering (hey, it’s Canada, it’s all relative!) heat! Again, while it was almost summer temps yesterday, we were often reminded visually that we’re not that far past winter…
My car got a MUCH NEEDED bath. Like, seriously. That crap along the bottom is grease (from my annual rust proofing last fall) that doesn’t come off in a automated car wash…it only comes off with manual scrubbing and some cursing.
While I enjoyed a beer…
