455.1 kilometres in Canada

To continue a vague theme, here’s another post about running whilst away from home. My wife is Canadian and so we get to spend long chunks of time in Canada from time to time (this is though the first time we’ve been out there since I started running properly in late 2014), and so we spent all of July and most of August there. I just tallied up that I ran 455.1km.

The interesting thing is that my pace appears to have been consistently slower out there than it has been otherwise in 2016. My 2016 runs have averaged 5.275 minutes per km (5:17 roughly), but in Canada I averaged 5:27. I put that down to greater elevation (average of 40 metres per run relative to 27 in 2016), and also longer runs (average distance just shy of 8km compared to 4.7km in 2016). Also I ran socially quite a bit with some slower runners, and found a great trail run which couldn’t be run particularly fast. Excuses…
