What up Queenie!
Sunday’s Long Run was the second time I ran up Queen Elizabeth hill this week-I guess with the Queen visiting the country – it’s only fitting I pay my respect my running “her” hill twice.
The run was fairly hilly but once you get to the top it’s only about 4km downhill back to the store. Nnot a bad route at all. The weather was perfect for running but I never really got into the grove. When I first started running my leg felt so sore. I was favoring one leg and it felt like I was limping when I ran. After about 5km I loosened up a bit.
The route was 16km long and average pace for Sunday’s run was 5:23/km.
Monday, I rook Keiran along one of my favorite routes. It’s about a 10km loop around the seawall and back over Burrard bridge.
Average pace= 5:25/km. My leg felt pretty good and the run was very comfortable. I think it only hurts in the mornings when I wake up and am stiff. Wow, I am aging at an incredible fast rate.
There are so many awesome running routes in Vancouver that I do with the Running Room that I never really have to think of my own. However, if you want to find a new and pretty run near where you live (ahem, Mom and Dad) or just want to plan out a new route http://www.mapmyrun.com/ is a good website to check out.
