Weekend Update

Last Thursday we managed to get out for our after work run on the dyke. We noticed that the days are starting to get longer so hopefully within the next month we can be more adventurous with our after work runs. Saturday Neil had to work until early afternoon so the plan was to go for a run at Buntzen Lake in the afternoon. We had Valentines dinner plans with friends who live in the area so this would all work out nicely. Unfortunately the work did not end in the afternoon as planned so I headed out on my own to Hayward Lake. I ran the railway trail side (the side with the bears!) with the iPOD cranked for an out and back which gave me almost and hour and a half run. A little shorter than we had planned for that day but better than nothing at all. Neil made it home in time so we could still go for dinner. It was great to catch up with Marilyn and Ron and we always enjoy Marilyn's great cooking! Sunday was a beautiful clear winters day. Back to Hayward Lake we went this time all the way around in about 2:15. We were planning to add on to the loop but our legs were tired (from the 30km on the road last weekend) so we decided to call it quits for the day. Next weekend we should run longer as we have a couple of 50km events in the next few weeks. Tonight I missed the workout with Warren due to a later work commitment but I just heard from Neil and it sounds like it was a tough one! The weather looks great for the week so no excuses for not getting out for some runs again this week!
On the weekend we watched the West Highland Way Information night that John Kynaston kindly filmed so those of us from far away could see the evening. Lots of great tips and great humour too! Thank-you to all who contributed to the evening.
