well, i just couldn't resist. i was downtown for a doctor appointment today and decided afterward, to make the long 1 mile climb from the bottom of Temperance Street, up Signal Hill Road, to the Cabot Tower. Once again, as was the case during the Cape to Cabot 20k road race, i found it extremely challenging to run uphill and breathe at the same time. But instead of walking, i was able to keep a steady jog for most of it.
It was a very rare beautiful clear day in St. John's, so i had a lovely view of the entire city, as well as out to sea, from the top of the hill. in all, i ran 18k today, and swam 2k in the pool for good measure!
