The legs felt heavy today. Makes sense, I did yoga and ran 10k the day before. My shoulder feels sore, too. What’s up with that? Perhaps my body is preparing me for this weekend’s yoga retreat. I (briefly) thought about lunch time yoga, but abandoned that plan. Rest is as important as running. And tomorrow, I have speedwork on the agenda.
On May 5, the Goodlife Toronto Marathon is going through my neighbourhood. I’m setting up a Corktown Cheer Station to support the runners. It’s my (very small) way of giving back — to the spectators who have cheered me on in races in the past and to the running community that has come together as a result of what happened on Monday.
Come out if you can. Hilarious signs are encouraged. Enthusiasm is a must. I will have cowbells. My neighbours are going to hate me. It’s going to be great.
