Things finally started to warm up here in Ottawa this week so I took Wednesday’s run outside. It definitely took me a while to adjust but it was such a beautiful day that my 5 miles went by (relatively) fast :) I did my first mile at 12:00 min/mile and gradually sped up to 10:30 for my last mile.
I have my last long run (10 miles) before the NYC Half scheduled for Sunday. It’s supposed to be another nice day so I’m hoping to run along the Rideau Canal, my favorite route. It’ll be a good opportunity to test out my Camelbak and my playlist!
Unfortunately the weather this afternoon wasn’t quite as welcoming so I stuck to my treadmill for the 5 miles on my schedule. Today’s source of entertainment was The Voice, my favorite of the singing competition shows. And not just because I have a thing for tattooed musicians ;)
I really like the fact that The Voice showcases talented singers from the get-go. I always skip the first few episodes of American Idol because I get really bored watching all the horrible auditions. I also think focusing on mentoring rather than judging is a great concept.
This was the first week of battle-rounds and the performances were, for the most part, really good. Of course, I disagreed with the mentors’ picks every single time; I guess it’s a good thing I’m not judging any of these shows :P
Do you watch any of the singing competition shows?
What are your workout plans for the weekend?
