Thanks for all of your concern on yesterday’s post. This is something that we do not deal with regularly (or ever!) so it was pretty shocking for everyone. Fortunately, no damage or injuries in my area. After the craziness, we enjoyed a pretty spectacular sky.
Tomorrow I’m running A Mid Summer Night’s Run (30K).
A Midsummer Night’s Run is a magical evening of running staged on Toronto’s East end trails and along Lake Ontario. The run will start before the sun sets and will be finished by the light of the moon. Shakespeare’s own words well describe this night as being “…swift as a shadow, short as any dream…”
Given that this is my first 30K race, my first evening race and my first time running any kind of long distance in the evening, I really have no idea what to expect. That being said, I trust in my training and recent results and I should be in good shape for a decent race. Having my trusty pace bunny (husband) by my side will certainly help. I have to remember this this is not my goal race and I can’t afford to wipe myself out completely with two weeks of peak training ahead. What happens tomorrow may largely depend on the weather. The forecast earlier this week promised cooler temperatures, no humidity and isoltaed showers. Now: warm, humid and chance of thundershowers. All things considered, I have three goals.
= ~3:07:30 finish
B Goal (I think I can): ~6:00/KM pace (9:39/mi)
= ~3:00:00 finish
A Goal (I hope I can): ~5:40/KM pace (9:07/mi)
= ~2:50:00 finish
