In my last post, I mentioned that I’m not very motivated to train properly when I don’t have a solid race in mind.
So, with that in mind, I signed up for a couple fall races with the Canadian Running Series!
Oasis Zoo Run Toronto 2017
I typically run the Oasis Zoo Run and really enjoy it even though it’s got a bunch of hills, but I didn’t go last year because I had to go to Baltimore for work at the same time.
This time, I’m running the 10K and I’m excited to go back to beat my race time of 01:05 (ish).
Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront (Half) Marathon 2017
I was training for a half marathon before I got into the car accident, so I know I was physically capable of getting up to long runs of 19K. Theoretically, I can do it again, and I really hope I’ll be able to do it according to my corral time – 02:15!
But, I’m thinking that I need to get myself out running more often, which I’m hoping won’t get in the way of my rock climbing training. I’ve run to the rock climbing gym before (about 5.5km) with a Gregory backpack, but then I’m limited to just bouldering since I don’t have the space to pack my harness and GriGri.
Any suggestions on how to balance running and rock climbing? There’s only so many hours in a day!
