wow, i ran up to middle cove beach today for the first time since, geeze, forever. one of my fav summer spots, as has been well documented on here. ran the mostly uphill 9.7k in 51.20, the 4th fastest run up there ever for me. what a shock! especially after all i did yesterday. i guess the adrenaline was flowing with the excitement of a nice sunny day and a trip to the beach.
the beach was lovely, although somewhat sad as it's not quite the same when it's cold and empty. i certainly hope i am still here in newfoundland come summer 2009 so i can have many more visits up there, and have many more swims in the ocean.
the run home was into a strong wind so i was slowed down a bit, but finished strong. and after a break, was out for another 5k to the ponds to feed the duckies.... what a great day! time for a nice bubble bath now!
