This is yesterday's run report, as I didn't get home from Ottawa until almost 11 last night.
A beautiful morning, and I always love the ottawa trails along the Rideau Canal. I started near the locks downtown where I was staying, and ran to Dows Lake and back. 8 miles in total.
Good News!!! My hamstring was not an issue. Very slight tightness, and it got no worse as I went. I could have gone further, but thought it best to not push it. In fact, I'm going to rest today and try for a 10 miler (maybe 11) tomorrow. Then the Bayshore Half is just a week away.
I took it easy on the speed. My splits:
9:21 8:57 9:07 9:01 8:56 8:37 8:43 and 9:04, for an average pace of 8:58 and a running time of 1:11:54.
I have physiotherapy this afternoon and I believe it will be my final one, although for sure I'll be keeping up with my own strength routine for the hammies, and I know I need to be very careful going forward so as not to reinjure them. I have no plans for speedwork any time soon.
