Running back to Saskatoon
Couldn’t help myself to those Guess Who lyrics as I fly out to Saskatoon on Thursday for the Saskatchewan Marathon. I will likely run the 10km there as a tempo workout on Sunday morning.
The Inferno has a website now (www.SpeedRiverInferno.com), check it out and come watch the races if you’re in the area.
I have a couple of workouts under my belt now and my body is feeling better each day. The next phase of my training will include reconnecting with some 5km and 10km speed. For the past few weeks I’ve had the feeling that I have so much time before my next race and now all of a sudden it’s less than 5 weeks away. I don’t feel any pressure to force my workouts but I need to get into decent shape sooner than later. I’m really excited about my summer race schedule. After the Scotia Vancouver 1/2 I plan on racing the Boilermaker 15km (July 14) and the Falmouth 7 mile (August 11). These races are stacked up front!
