Toronto Training walk for #everestbasecamptrek2015

Toronto is a big city and I found it to be a bit cold and uninviting at first. I was dubious of finding a good route to do my walk. I resigned myself to doing a city walk and just checking out the city streets. Luckily the staff at the hostel I was staying at were most helpful and directed me to a nearby park where people like to exercise.

 

I walked through a popular shopping area and checked out the Graffiti as I went.

Arriving at Trinity Bellwoods Park, I was pleasantly surprised to find a big area to walk and explore.

Found some sets of steps and hills to do some running training and get some of the larger leg muscles working. There will be a lot of uphill on Everest! So when an area is flat, I found steps or small hills where I can and repeat.

Lovely puppies and pets playing with their owners- a joy to see.

Spotted some squirrels in the park. Always a pleasure to see these fluffy little critters. We don’t have them in Oz, so yes, Australians get overly excited at squirrel sightings!

So it was actually a lovely walk and I got an hour and a half in before I headed to a work conference for 4 days – where there wasn’t much time for exercise! Apart from dancing to the amazing bands at Canadian Music Week.

Goal achieved. Training walk complete in Toronto!
