well, i'm on a roll again! started the day by finding out that the infamous Regatta was on and that the city would officially get a recognized Civic Holiday for the festivities (the only "weather-permitting" stat holiday in north america!) this was at 6.30 am so i went back to sleep for a few hours since i didn't have to go to work.
around 10 am, i had finally finished my bowl of raisin bran and banana and hit the road for a run. it was like i had hit the wall after the first step. i felt very sluggish. i dragged myself down prince philip drive to the mall and back a few times before nearly colapsing after about 12 k. after a water break, i struggled thru a few more k and made it home for an hours rest and some energy food.
feeling a bit better, i went and did another 9k, mostly laps around the pond.
then it was home for a nap and then off to the regatta. a co-worked was holding a dinner party, which was great as he owns a condo that has a balcony that overlooks the lake, so we were able to watch the rowing races from above.
i also managed to run to and from the party while wearing a sexy dress and my running shoes.. lol i got quite a few stares as i ran through the city.
once home from the party, i changed back into running gear and did 4 more laps of the pond to finish my 42.2k for the day. clocking in at what appears to be a consistent time frame: 4.17.24 of running over a total time span of 11.25.00.
earlier in the day, i was really pushing to see if i could get today's run finished by 3.46 pm, so i could register my 3rd career double marathon within a 24 hour period, but it was not to be. however, i am really pleased to have finished another marathon, and even more pleased that i did so strongly and with minimal knee or calf pain. here i sit at 10:40 pm typing this up and i am very confident that i will get thru tomorrow's run easily. in fact, there may be a double marathon in the works tomorrow or sunday.
