Three Things Thursday
1. Colin and I have a 16km/10mi race pace run to do this Friday or Saturday. We am going out of town to visit his parents for Easter. They live in a town that could be termed “Podunkville, British Columbia”. So, my options are:
- to run 8km out and back on the highway – boring and there’s the chance of being hit by a car, truck, or big horned sheep (and my mum might
kill menot be too fond of that option).
- to run a big loop around town like we did last summer. Pretty, but there are lots of hills. Not conducive to keeping at pace and the only real hill in the race is going over a bridge. Might be counter-productive.
- to run around town as it is almost exactly 4km to run a square loop. Repeat 4 times. While this will be the most boring route EVER I think I’ll have to take it. Did I mention that Colin and I don’t run the same pace? Yeah, we’re not even close – my race pace is his steady… So it would probably be best to be at least somewhat close together.
