Saturday morning I was up early for a long run… and wondering how my legs would hold up after 41 miles of riding on Friday. I was running solo for a change and a little worried about 20 miles all by my lonesome, but I easily zoned out in my thoughts and my music, and the miles ticked by pretty easily. I kept the pace on the slow side given my recent hamstring issues and felt great start to finish!

I had a quick ice bath once I got home and then waited to hear from Juliana – she and her hubby were participating in Toronto City Chase #2 and I offered to be their support “crew.”
I was excited to be on the other side of the action for a change. Shortly after 10am some texts and emails came in and I got busy looking up info. They were able to send me snapshots of the clue sheet which made it a lot easier to look up information.
I solved as many as I could and sent them as much info as possible as quickly as possible. I can’t wait to hear how their day went! It was definitely neat to be on this side – especially for J and her hubby since they were pretty laid back, just looking to have some fun – unlike a certain other team (ahem) I know. 😉
When my duties were completed and I had sufficiently stuffed my face with recovery foods, hubs and I headed to Lake Wilcox for an open water swim. It felt great to get in the lake and we swam 1070m out to the mid-point buoy and back. (measured with my handy Garmin-in-swim-cap-trick.)
We had our bikes in the car and headed straight out on a ride after the swim. (Yes we did a little of everything today!) We headed to our new favourite place for a mid-ride treat: Yogurtys!
