Things like softball (we lost, as usual) and kicking the weekend off right (drinks with co-workers!) got in the way of running until Saturday morning. A new park opened up right by my house for the summer (it’s closing in the fall to add more elements), Corktown Common, and I wanted to check it out. Matt and I walked through the park. It’s beautiful and reminds me a lot of the Brickworks, but with more grassy areas for kicking back. Good job, Toronto.
It was humid and sticky, so I took it easy, with no real distance in mind. I wanted to run between 40 and 60 minutes and not hurt my knee, so I did exactly that. Zig-zagged through the park, headed up the Don Valley to the Bloor Viaduct and back again. It wasn’t my best run ever, but it wasn’t my worst. It was unremarkable at best.
The park is great, though. You should check it out.
The run: 8k in 48:20
