September 10th

First – last night’s speed work was a success! 8 x 800 at an average of 3:35 (slowest 3:42, fastest 3:26). It felt great to really get the legs moving.

Today is our 5-year wedding anniversary! We have the day off and started our morning with a long-ish run together. My legs were tired less than 12 hours after speed work, but hubs stuck with me and slogged along at my pace. It was a nice way to start our day.

21.0KM/13.0mi – 2:05:36 – 5:59/KM = 9:38/mi

If anyone had told us 5 years ago that this is what we would be doing on our anniversary, we would have told you that you’re crazy! It’s been quite the adventure so far and we’re looking forward to the next 5… and 50!

And now we’re off to the Algonquin Couples Resort for an evening of wining, dining and hot-tubbing! I’ll leave you with some photos from the last few years.







Have a great weekend!
