I have finally, after being sidelined with a sprained foot for over six weeks, been able to rejoin the group over the past couple of weeks and am almost back to normal. I’m still getting my speed and distance up but thrilled to be able to keep up with the group all the way round the cemetery. Thank heavens for the resilience of the human body – even at my mature age!
Being away, has made me even more appreciative of the whole TPW experience – the beauty of the places we walk, the joy of being outside, the comfort of being with friends – even if we have to keep our distances.
Some bits of news – we are going to move back to an 8:30 start on Saturdays at the cemetery (hooray) and we are going to start 4 weeks of hill training as of Tuesday, Sept. 15 at our usual spot at Sherwood Park. Hopefully the weather will remain mild and we can enjoy after-walk pizza on the patio at our favourite place.
Phyllis will be updating us all on the plans for the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon relay but take note that there are couple of spots left – stay tuned.
Wishing everyone a relaxing Labour Day.
