Run Kelownagurl, Run!

I felt like Forrest Gump on my run this morning - I got into the 'zone', no pain to speak of, felt like I coulda run a marathon. My heart rate was steady at 148, I listened to Podrunner 168 bpm and kept my pace steady. With the rolling terrain, I wasn't running fast, about 7 min/km I think. Did a full 7km in 48:19. I'm ok with that. So yeah, I'm happy!

Then, less than an hour later, Erik and I rode out to Winfield to pick up my new Garmin heart rate monitor, to replace the one that died. We rode out via North Glenmore, with a fair amount of climbing, and then came home via the highway, past the airport following our usual flattish route home. I was doing about a 28kmh avg on the first 60 km, but once I started the climb home, I slowed down to give my legs a rest. Ended up with a little over 26 kmh avg, for 65 km. Not bad considering it was following a long run. It was overcast and warm, threatening rain, and we did hit a few light showers but I think I got sunburned as well. Tomorrow I'll go for a swim, and if I ride tomorrow, it'll be easier I think.

Tonight we're off the see Indiana Jones. I know I'll love it, no matter what. :) I haven't been to see a movie in a couple of years.

And here's a couple of shots of my 10 year old son running relays at school last week. He's a pretty fast sprinter, came in 4th in the 100m I think, out of about 50 boys his age. The pics are closeups and a bit blurry but I like the action.

Hi Kelownagirl, how are things? Sounds like you had a great run. So what did you think of Indiana Jones?

Hey TriChick! Things are going well but I'm up to my eyeballs in school stuff and not getting any training done. Indy was great but VERY predictable. :)
