Jed and I met at GoodLife Fitness downtown London to run with the Runners Choice Marathon Training Group today. The temperature was -12 when we left Jed's truck. We did a route from GoodLife down to the dam in Springbank Park, around the loop to Storybook Gardens, and then back. Here are our 1 km splits:
5:35 (Saturn playground)
5:47 (Guy Lombardo Museum)
5:43 (Loop around back to Storybook Gardens)
5:31 (Guy Lombardo Museum)
5:23 (Saturn playground)
5:17 (170 m.)
So an average of 5:40. It was a tough run with about an inch of loose snow over the snow-packed roads and trails -- very much like running on the beach. Jed kept pushing us, though, and we were pleased with ourselves at the end. Our times coming back (uphill) were better than our times going out.
