Another wet day here in Vancouver and another 12km in the books. I really didn’t want to go out today. I didn’t do yesterday’s run until 11:30 pm and then to go out and do this one just felt like a little bit too much considering how tired I’ve been feeling over the past couple of days. But, I went out and did it and that’s what matters!

It was actually quite a good run. I hit personal bests on pretty much every Strava segment and the three I didn’t do that on were second bests. So, even when I’m feeling tired and sluggish, I’m still showing improvements¬†over performances from the past! It’s pretty exciting actually.

For this run, I decided to hit Lynn Canyon from the very bottom and run all the way to the top. It’s a slightly more difficult route than I normally do and gives me an extra hundred meters or so of elevation gain. In fact, I think I might start every run by taking this route. It will also give me a slight distance boost, not that I’m going to need that every time, depending on the daily plan requirement and the route I choose to run.

This was the first run in a while where I spent a significant amount of time above heart rate zone 2. In fact, I spent almost 50% of the run at tempo. That will have given me a nice fitness boost as we creep nearer and nearer to Run Ridge Run!
