We had planned to do 28km...so I checked out all the routes and instead of running loops around town and dosing local traffic, I suggest a nice route out on the highway. We start out from Moms and take some pathways until we get to highway 56 (which heads out towards Camrose). So we've gone about 4km when we hit the highway. Apparently, we are to go until we hit 601 and head on up to Pheasantback Golf Course. If we do that and turn back we'll get in the miles.
We actually got in 29km. It was a clear day, which was a relief given the snowfall the day before. (Groa: when is spring going to END?)
Do we go this way? Asks Chrystal?
Yup I say...and I keep following her.
The only time I get ahead of her is when she pops off to see a sight (aka potty break)!
But really it is a good run. Feels good. It is a tad faster than my slow run at first but I find my rhythm. We finally hit a corner and turn to run up 601 (a quieter secondary highway). On the way back we pause for some stretching and pics...
Despite the last several kilometres being really hard for me and having to dig deep.
THANK YOU Chrystal for giving me her iPod Shuffle!! We dig in and get it done.
We go home a different way (aka less traffic and not down mainstreet) and
I see Chrysal race into a convenience store (the one by my house where I grew up!!)
Only 2k left (well actually 3km...but really who's counting???)
And as we hit the home stretch I have Chrystal yelling at me.
Raise those legs!
Not sure if I raised my legs higher but I tried...
I am so grateful for her encouragement She got me there that's for sure.
And we got home and stretched!
And about 4 hours later ate some turkey, ham, stuffing, carrots,
(extra stuffing no potatoes thanks)
one class of bubbly and only two bites of desert. Took a bite from mom's! haha
How was your Easter?
