What we ate:
...I got spinach quiche, sweet potato fries and a salad.
The food was passable, but the views were worth every penny.
I managed to squeeze in an 8-mile run at Ottawa on Saturday. Most of the run was on the road (for a Jersey girl, roads with no cars count as trails!)...
...but toward the end, I found a little trail (if you can call it that) alongside the Rideau Canal.
The weather was perfect...in the mid 60's with a a slight breeze.
You know I love little rustic wooden bridges.
My running buddy for the day...
I would move to Canada, just for the awesome open spaces.
A tip: When you walk into a grocery store in Ottawa, make sure you carry Canadian money, not US money! I had to return the bananas, apples, granola bars and protein shake I greedily picked up after my run, because the store would not accept US dollars. What was I thinking?
We drove back with a couple of friends who live in NJ.
Last week was a light recovery week, after the NYC Half Marathon.
Tuesday: 1250 yard swim
Wednesday: 4 miles
Thursday: 6 miles
Saturday: 8 miles
Hope you are having a wonderful week.
