Okay, I’m stretching the truth there a little’not only is it not summer yet, but summer running is far from ideal. Spring/fall is perfect, and on Wednesday I went for my first jacket-less run of the year, and it felt so good!
Nike hosts regular media run nights, with representatives from Nike and their PR agency and invitees from different media outlets around the city. It’s a fun event and a good chance to go running with different people. They host it at the Nike Runner’s Lounge near Summerhill subway station in Toronto (as far as I know, only residents of Toronto and Vancouver are lucky enough to have Lounges just yet). There’s a beautiful park in the area and we usually go running through the trails. It’s as close to nature as you can get around here!
Aside from the media runs, a friend and I go running weekly at the Runner’s Lounge’or we did, last year. Next week will be our first try at starting up our habit again. And it’s not a moment too soon’we’ve got a 10K coming up the first weekend of May and the farthest I’ve run is still the 8K race a few weeks ago. It’s hard to find a balance between increasing mileage and not pushing your body too far, too fast.
Next run: tomorrow morning! If you’re lucky enough to be enjoying good weather too, how are you making the most of it?
