We just returned from a beautiful trailrun in bowmont park. We went for just over an hour, it was great to see so many people out enjoying the sunny warm weather regardless of what they were doing. The trails were completely clear and almost completely dry. There were a couple of spots where there was some mud holes but 90% of it was dusty dry. If this weather holds we will have to get the bikes out and hit the dirt in bowmont properly! Have fun and keep training for summer it will be here soon enough.Share on Facebook
Once again another great day of training, we started out at 6am with a gym workout. This is our last week for strength training before we go into endurance and core. Over the last 5 weeks we have seen good increase in strength and now it is time to strip down the muscle but keep the strength.
After work we went for our local 5km run around our neighbourhood in South West Calgary with our dog Buddy. We then came home and got straight on the bikes in the basement (hopefully for the last time this winter) and pounded out an hour on the bikes watching the Transporter.Share on Facebook
