  1. RUN
    great Northshore 14 km 01:24 09:36 pace

    Meant to do 10, sort of zoned out and the next thing i knew I was 7k from my car. One of those runs that just felt great. Beauty of a day today!

    great Trainer road - Warlow 30.6 km 01:30 12.7mph pace

    I had been hoping to join Sam J. and Nicole M. this morning, but it didn't work out. So trainer time for me! This was the hardest TR workout yet. intervals with 2 min just under FTP, 1 minute ... read more

    great Headon Forest 7.6 km 00:45 09:37 pace

    Working at home, so got in a short morning run. Felt colder than -4, or maybe I'm just not used to it yet!

    great TR - Geiger 20.8 km 01:00 12.9mph pace

    Three 12 minute sweet spot intervals with a buttload of cadence drills incorporated. The drills are definitely working - I'm getting more and more comfortable spinning faster, and the one sect... read more

    great Ye old Couch 2 5k Route 5.5 km 00:34 09:57 pace

    My legs were so rusty you should just call me Tin Man, but my hip felt fine, so I'm cautiously optimistic. Rest day tomorrow, then bike again Thursday and see how things feel.

      Nice lunch outing. Rusty legs won't last long, give it a week or so. Take it easy getting back into it and hopefully your hip will be fine.

      With the shape of those rusty legs, I'd call you Tin Lady.. but nice work.

    great Trainer Road - Tunnabora 20.6 km 01:00 12.8mph pace

    After two full weeks of rest, testing things out with a spin on the trainer. Hip feels fine (and oh how I have missed exercise!), but I'll have to see how things feel tomorrow morning before I... read more

  7. Hey folks! I'm around, just taking some time off to see if I can get the hip problem that's been bothering me off and on since May to resolve. 8 days rest so far and it's working, th... read more

    Had to take advantage of this nice warm day to get in a short run while dinner is cooking in the oven. Lovely!

    great Trainer Road - Eclipse 32.8 km 01:30 13.6mph pace

    Whew, that was a good one. Three 20 minute sweet spot intervals. one with a fast cadence, one slow, one natural. Starting watching Catching Fire for entertainment, and there are some interesting po... read more

    great Lakeshore 15.1 km 01:32 09:51 pace

    Hooked up with Sam J. and Mari S. for an easy long run on Lakeshore. Other than dodging the piles of leaves and the occasional icy patch, it was a nice morning for a run with some great company. On... read more

    great Trainer Road - Carson 21.3 km 01:00 13.2mph pace

    Yet more sweet spot intervals (the training plan is called Sweet Spot Base, so I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by that), but today they were more climbing orientated. YAY! Lower cadence, bu... read more

      I know of Minecraft as a game, but videos to watch? That's new on me. And it's got to be better than Barney. :)

      @Nicole they stick to Stampy, who the interwebs tell me is kid safe (lord knows I can't watch more than 2 minutes of those things without passing out from boredom, so I'm taking the interwebs word for it on that).

    great Princess Point 8 km 00:48 09:36 pace

    Lunch run! I like these! Lots of other runners out today. Good temp, no wind, a little very light snow to pretty things up. Can't complain about any of that.

    great Trainer Road - Ericsson 20.3 km 01:00 12.6mph pace

    Couldn't figure out why I was so sweaty - then realized I forgot to turn the fans on. D'oh. I guess just setting them in the right spot isn't exactly going to do the job! Some indivi... read more

    alright Lakeshore 10.5 km 01:03 09:40 pace

    Eh, not a great run. Still have the cold, which doesn't help, and I overdressed so was too hot by the end. Nice to get outside by the lake for a bit - so many other runners out today!

    great Trainerroad - Antelope 30.4 km 01:30 12.6mph pace

    The original plan was to run this morning, but instead we slept in and then went to a breakfast buffet. I regret nothing. #offseason

    6x 6 min sweet spot intervals. Getting a feel for all the different types of intervals on the bike. I have determined that when things get tough, I need to switch from Netflix to really shitty danc... read more

      Nice spin Emma. Try a shot of rum in your hot tea to take care of that cold. On the other had, I see what might have caused this. It’s yesterdays 5am running club ;-)

      When things get tough, I usually have sweat dripping all over my face and I can't see anything anyway. :-) It's not a pretty sight either. :-D Nice workout!

    I can't say 90 minutes on the trainer in the aerobic zone is super exciting, but the workout serves a purpose. Now, food.
