It was Gord Ball's 60th birthday today (new age group!) so I went into London to do my tempo run. It was a bit of a miserable night -- warm enough (around 0 C.), but ending with rain. And the footing sucked with lots of puddles and slush that we had to navigate, in addition to dodging cars. But despite the less-than-ideal conditions, we pushed the pace. Here are my splits:
For the last couple of kilometres, we were on King Street and the footing was pretty good, although we were still having to navigate the big puddles and watch for cars again. But it felt great to have traction!
We celebrated the good run and Gord's 60th with a pint at the Fox and Fiddle after we were all cleaned up.
