good Waterloo Rec Complex Indoor Track 9 km 00:53 09:29 pace

Terrible wind out today, so I decided to give running at the Waterloo Rec Complex a try. The track is free to use on Sat & Sun mornings, and Ive been thinking about checking it out for a while.

I enjoyed the run quite a lot, definitely not as much as a good outdoor run but worlds more than I would running on a treadmill. There were lots of people on the track alongside me, probably about a dozen other runners and twenty or so walkers. So there were lots of people to watch, and it was fun racing a bit against the other runners.

Also, the track is around a hockey arena, so it was a lot cooler on the track than the gym would be. I still sweat a lot, but less than I would have.

I had planned for 10K, but I ran out of time, theres a youth track team that had exclusive use of the track at 10 AM, so I had to go.

I really enjoyed this and definitely will go back on a bad weather day. http://bit.ly/w7vbfE
