Monday brought some beautiful weather for hill repeats. I had to remind myself that hills would feel hard whether I ran up the hill slowly or quickly so I challenged myself to run faster when my legs were tired and didn’t want to go.
Wednesday was my final spin class at Tri-It for the season. We went out with a bang with all out max efforts of 10 x 0:10 as hard as you can go and 0:10 recovery…twice. I wanted to keel over when it was all done.
Instead I went home, put game one of the Canucks vs Flames playoff series on TV and tucked into this amazing dinner that Neil made.
It is based off of the Salmon and Kimchi rice bowl in this month’s Runner’s World magazine. Neil steamed steelhead trout in a parchment pouch in the microwave with liquid from the kimchi and some shredded carrot. Topped with pineapple, sesame seeds and nori.
On Friday I ran a new route and wound up running all the way to the Stampede grounds. I was amazed at the number of people there…and I spotted Mr. Incredible, Ironman, and two guys in full on combat fatigues. Then I realized the Calgary Comic Expo was on!
Yay for running in shorts!
Friday night pizza at Una followed by game two of the Canucks vs. the Flames. Which jersey to wear??
On Saturday after a 90 min spin and 15 min brick I popped by the mall to scope out Anthropologie. They always have some fun stuff and I love this watermelon print blouse!
Sunday I headed out for a 90 min run through Bowmont Park. With my runs getting longer it was time to get my Camelbak out!
And take a GU!
It was a beautiful day and I had an amazing run. To refuel Neil and I opted to have a late breakfast at Corbeaux Bakehouse.
The steak and eggs Benedict was out of this world.
Tell me about your weekend! What did you get up to?
