  1. RUN
    good Easy post HM kms 5.01 km 00:33 10:35 pace

    Officially my biggest volume week to date as I build into Squamish.

    Plan was a double day, but it was REALLY hot, and I already did some running in the heat.

    Waited til it cooled off a bit, then ... read more

  2. RUN
    good Warm-down 0.42 km 00:02:23 09:10 pace

    Not much of a warm-down, was walking a lot, basically to the car and back to drop off a few things and get my phone to get julie coming in!

  3. RUN
    great Kamloops Half Marathon 21.1 km 01:35 07:13 pace

    Opted for the Noosa Tri shoes again. Worked out great.

    Going to call this one my PR, since my one better time ( by like 10 seconds ) was over 200 meters short.

    Really tried to ease into it, let ... read more

  4. RUN
    good Quickie warm-up 0.65 km 00:03:30 08:36 pace

    Didn't warm up much, the first couple kms in a race this distance tends to do it.

    Did some dynamic movements and leg swings, high knees, butt kicks and a little striding too.

  5. RUN
    good Easy run. Garmin flipped out... 5 km 00:28 08:53 pace

    1.1 kms in 11s? I don't think so :p Had to manually change it in GC, and was able to split the workout in strava and discard the first portion.

    Pretty darn pleased with this pace considering... read more

    good Play trail group! Ok Mtn park! 9.23 km 01:16 13:11 pace

    Another week with the play trail running group.

    Only 3 of us out there this week, and it was a hot one! Getting used to the heat now though despite not getting a lot of really hot days yet.

    good Quickie Z2 run the day after!! 5 km 00:26 08:15 pace

    Hard trail HM yesterday, so just a nice easy 2z quickie to flush out the legs a little :)

    Even while recovering, liking the pace vs hr.

  10. RUN
    great Dirty feet 21k Kal Park 21.72 km 02:11 09:40 pace

    Went WAY better than the last dirty feet race. Helps that we didn't have a sudden burst of heat and I didn't run back to back halves LOL.

    good Mission Creek Greenway phase ... 18.41 km 02:12 11:31 pace

    Easy base miles on the trail as I reverse build into Squamish.

      Haha, I wouldn't say I am turning into a minimalist, especially as far as the shoes go, I like the cushion for the long stuff, but once in a while, not watching pace, heart rate, and just running is nice!

      That said, I'll still track it, gotta know what time it is for turning around too, haha

    good Gyro training loop lap #2! 0.84 km 00:25 47:56 pace

    We managed 2 loops today, and the loop is 1,600m where the across the lake swim is 2,100m.

    We were getting plenty of chop near the end too!

      Careful with those shoes--they can lead to injury at a really bad time. Glad Julie was able to muster through and the girls are enjoying their bikes!

      I think I am on the verge of retiring them based on the numbers, but they still feel great, and you hear about some high mileage guys who totally run their shoes into the ground!

      I do need a pair of walking around shoes though, as my current ones got demoted to work shoes, the old work shoes finally bit it :p

      She's also got a pair of the leadvilles, so hopefully between those, and perhaps some pre-taping as well as carrying some emergency mole-skin she'll make the 50k!!
