Three Things Thursday

1. I had a "maintenance" appointment on Tuesday night at physio; after a good rub-down, I walked out feeling nice and loose. Unfortunately I found out that my PT is leaving the practice for 20 months to work in another country. I'm definitely bummed becuase I have really come to know and trust her over 2.5 years; hopefully she will return. In the meantime, she has referred me to the owner of the practice (a.k.a. Dr. Pain - uh oh!) who is also an experienced runner and I know he'll take good care of me.

2. Tonight I'll be running 800m repeats at clinic. I've really been looking forward to taking up speed work again with the group to push me along, but tonight I'll be taking it on the easy side because...

3. This Saturday I'm running the Toronto Women's 10K - 3rd race in 3 weeks if you're keeping track (4th next weekend). Interestingly enough, my (former) PT will also be competing. There goes my chance at winning... ;) Anyone else going to be there??



Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!

I hate it when someone like that leaves. It's like a sad divorce.

You are always up to something!! Good luck on the 10K this weekend.
