The hot weather is finally here.  Hope everyone is getting out there and basking in the sun.  I hear it’s also pretty toasty in Ontario.  Yesterday morning, a friend and I attempted to do our first grind of the season.  I for one, don’t really like doing the Grouse Grind.  Every time I start it, I wonder why I start it but every time I finish, I feel a great sense of accomplishment.  Hiking to the top just over 1100 meters and 2.9km in under an hour, 57mins to be exact, is something that I am proud of.  Plus I averaged a HR of 165 and burned 1134 calories while doing so.  I’d like to get it below 50mins by the end of summer.  So that only means that I will have plenty more mental battles of “why am I doing this”.  Sometimes we get to comfortable just going through the motions, it’s time we each do one thing to challenge us, it’ll keep life interesting.
