Wow, time has gone by fast. There is now only 7 days until I run the Waterloo half-marathon.
I drove up to Waterloo this afternoon so I could drive the course to familiarize myself with it. Holy crap there are a lot of hills. Like a lot, a lot. There were maybe 2 steep hills, but they didn't seem long. But many of the other hills were long but less steep.

I will be running the Waterloo Half-Marathon on Sunday April 25th, 2010.
I'm starting to get very excited & nervous about the run. During my training my knees have been bothering me near the end of my runs. I've also experienced a little pain in my lower back. Nothing too bad, I think I just need to stretch that part more. Other then that my training runs have been great & I've been really lucky this passed winter as there hasn't been a lot of snow.

This week & next are my most intense training period for the half-marathon I am doing in April in Waterloo. On Thursday this week I ran 7 miles and this morning I ran 12 miles.
Next week I will be running my usual 5 k on Monday & running intervals on Tuesday (5 miles + warm up & cool down). But here's the kicker, I will be running 8 miles (13 km) on Thursday & 13 miles on Saturday. Ouch!

I ran in my 3rd 5 km run this weekend. It was the second time I had run this race. I did it 2 years ago, but couldn't do it last year because of my broken ankle. I finished the race in under 33 minutes. Not very fast but I finished it. I just kept a steady pace.
Next weekend the 25 km Ride for Heart.
