I can't believe I just ran 60% of a marathon. This is from Cooksville Go station (Mississauga) to Toronto. Amazing. Just a year ago, I thought biking downtown was great. Now I can jog it. Afterwards both quads are quite sore. Very tired after the run. No GI distress :). I think I need to bring more water and less Gatorade.

Beginning of the run, I really don't feel like jogging. After 5 km, I was in full force. Was tired until I saw Lake Ontario. I was saying Good morning to everyone I pass by. Makes the time go by faster :).

Third Week - 15th day training
Short Run
Drink: 750 ml water afterwards
Distance: 6.5 km
Intensity: Medium to High

Feeling emotionally bad. Not a good day to run. Don't feel like running. Just happy I was out running for such a short distance.
