Snow… again

In this calendar year, it has snowed three times that I can remember, twice in the last two weeks (both on Sunday’s). I rest my case.

Yesterday sucked. My running window, with respect to enthusiasm and energy was at 9:00 a.m., due to prior commitments I chose to run at 4:30 p.m., it wasn’t what I was looking for, and definitely not what I needed.

Today, amidst large snowflakes, Matt, Ian, Rosheen, Hicham and I headed out into Mount Doug for a very enjoyable jaunt. After an easy hour, Hicham and I left them to discover some new trails in Broadmead, the best of which was a sustained 10’+ climb; I loved every minute, Hicham didn’t... I can’t blame him, it was his birthday (and he’s not training for a marathon).

This next week should be interesting/challenging as I aim to make it my peak volume. Got to run (figuratively), I was “asked” to mind the bar for a friend's Christmas Party (at my favourite restaurant in town), how could I say no, really?
