A year and a half after running Hamilton’s Around the Bay 30k race I will be heading back to that city for my third attempt at a marathon. I have a month to relax a bit then my training session begins.
That leaves the next few weeks to have some fun. It started today with a very pleasant 6k run at a 5:43 pace. All of my solo runs the next few weeks will be based on feel and how much free time I have. Next will be a 2 day training camp for orienteering. Then there will be a women’s trail running clinic in Gatineau and at the end of June I will be stepping out of my comfort zone to run the Mad Trapper Natural Obstacle Off Trail Race. Should I be worried when the website describes it like this:
Steep Uphills, Steeper Downhills, Downriver Canyons, Through Swamps, Under Logs, Up Cliffs, Over Boulders, Lion and Tigers and Bears, Oh MY!
