I am a lazy runner.
What I mean is that I don’t like to push myself too hard, because if I do, I just won’t go running. I used to be an avid runner when I lived in London running around 25km a week on the canals (a runner’s dream) but since I got pregnant I haven’t run at all. I thought I’d start again when I was at the lake in August (see my running route above!), and now that Bastien is starting…. daycare….. I’ll have some time (more on that later).
I decided to download a Run 5k app on my iPhone which is a run/walk program. It’s pretty cool, and pretty effective. The beginning was a bit too easy for me, but now I’m running longer chunks and feeling good. Plus, it’s not so hard that I have trouble getting out the door. Perfect!!
Any runners out there? Do you have any tips for running in Montreal? I am sort of dreading the winter….
