This weekend was a good one running-wise (actually, it was a great weekend overall)! I got in 14 km, which is now my longest run since last summer! I did it on the treadmill since there was a snowstorm with high winds, and my husband was at work so I wouldn’t have a ride if my knee bummed out.
I was ecstatic for the rest of the day! I’m still trying to keep with three days of strength training, so after the run it was weights and core work.
The best part of the running weekend was on Sunday when my husband raced in a local 10 miler. It was the first race of the season, so there were a lot of high-calibre runners.
I’m new to the whole cheerleading role since we usually race together. Last summer was my first time when my husband ran the Edmonton marathon and I couldn’t run at all. I had a blast with my dad riding our mountain bikes around to various spots.
Back to the 10 miler…Kelly ran really well and looked strong throughout. It was a pretty hilly course so he was a little worried since he hasn’t done any hill training except for a few when we were in Hawaii earlier this year.
It was kind of chilly to spectate, but the start and finish were at a small mall so I popped in there a couple times to warm up. My parents showed up to help cheer, too!
Overall, it was a really fun morning. I love watching the elite runners, and it was awesome to see Kelly a few times.
Unfortunately my knee really bugged me so my trainer ride was pretty weak. I’m trying not to stress about it though.
How was your weekend? Any local races? Do you still have snow to deal with?!
