The weather this weekend was sooo beautiful! It was 20 degrees and sunny and I was so excited to get out and about! On Saturday my friend Sarah and I made plans to bike out to the Beaches area of Toronto. I actually woke up pretty early for me (8:00am) and went for a run down by the water before meeting her. We met with our bikes down at Sugar Beach, which in an of itself was very nice. Why have I never been to these parts of the city before? Sugar Beach and HTO park (HTO is within walking distance of my condo) are these adorable urban beaches. You can't go in the water, but they are great for sitting out and getting some sun! Of course, I am more prone to sitting on the rooftop of my condo if I want to relax in the sun!
Sunday was more laid back for me. I worked on a sewing project for my Dad (just some quick chair cushions) and then went grocery shopping. I wanted to go shopping in the morning, but a marathon was blocking my path and I had to wait for the afternoon! I always enjoy walking to the grocery store in the sun- it is such a nice walk up to Queen St! After lunch I did some stretching and went for another short run by the waterfront again. My first 10K race is on Sunday and I am getting so nervous for how I will do! I have tried train, but lately I have had terrible calf pains that sidelined me for a week, which then seemed to have put me out of shape. Sigh. So now I am just doing short runs so that my legs don't get pains again. I would rather run my race slowly than not be able to run it at all due to muscle tears!
Tonight I am hoping to go see the Cherry Blossoms at High Park! I hope it isn't too crowded!
