    great Long ride 63 km 02:24 16.3mph pace

    Lovely day out there! Warmer than I thought - I started out by climbing King Rd and was so overheated in my jacket that I had to stop 2/3 of the way up and strip off a layer. Did that hill get long... read more

    great Mississauga marathon bike mar... 24.2 km 01:05 14.0mph pace

    I'm volunteering at the Miss. marathon next weekend, and today was the training for the new bike marshals. We rode the last 14k or so of the course and heard all the race director's stori... read more

      I assume you are riding for the FM, not the half? I remember the year the bike marshals screwed up, they ended up having to duplicate the prize and it was a big CF.

      @Jana I knew I wanted to volunteer at Mississauga, and when I went to fill out the form bike marshal sounded a lot more fun than the other options! I'm looking forward to it! And studying the map so I don't get lost!

  3. RUN
    great Northshore/Townsend 15 km 01:23 08:52 pace

    Tagged along with Sam J. and Nicole M. for the first part of their long run. Northshore because we still like hills I guess? And back on Townsend because we don't like them THAT much. Legs fel... read more

    great #5amrunclub 10 km 00:58 09:24 pace

    Retirement lunch at work today, so had to get this one done early. Started out planning to just do 6, which turned into 8, which turned into 10. What can I say, I was feeling surprisingly good for ... read more

    great TR - Avalanche Spire 31.63 km 01:15 15.7mph pace

    Back on a plan with Trainerroad, now focusing on sustained power - and now the Thursday rides are 15 minutes longer. Which meant, in this case, 6 intervals instead of 4. Yay! This one was 6 sets of... read more

  6. RUN
    great Cootes/Rail trail 7.8 km 00:45 09:15 pace

    Ran this route in the reverse direction, just for a change of scenery (and thinking I might get a nice tailwind along the rail trail). Didn't look at my watch - I felt like I was running slowe... read more

    great Burlington Y 1700 yd 00:35 35:46 pace

    Most of the usual cast of characters at the Y this morning - steady swimming lady who never takes breaks, flailing fins guy, Sam J. :D Legs were feeling pretty tired from the FTP test when I starte... read more

    great TR - 20 minute test 26.1 km 01:00 16.2mph pace

    Starting a new trainerroad plan, which means...FTP test time! This was the '20 minute' version, and I was probably a bit too conservative because I wasn't totally exhuasted at the en... read more

    great Dalewood lunch swim 1400 m 00:32 36:59 pace

    Lunch hour fish practice. Usual. Very enjoyable, although the walk back to work into the wind with wet hair is a bit of a drag.

      I'm jealous that you are walking distance to swim! I used to swim at lunch but it's just a little too far to be convenient and I was always in such a rush.

      Nobody has ever complained to said anything to me before. But, at times the smell annoys ME, so I assume others must at least notice :)

    Cross winds, head winds, a distinct lack of tailwinds - this was windy! At one point I was on a flat and had to drop down into one of my lowest gears, the wind was so strong. Also had a disconcerti... read more

    great In my happy place 44.5 km 01:46 15.6mph pace

    Like I was going to let a gorgeous day like this slip by without a bike ride! Too nice not to spend some time on two wheels. The wind made things interesting - some nasty crosswinds in a few places... read more

    great Hills 'o Burlington 12.1 km 01:06 08:43 pace

    I think I'm officially fully recovered from ATB. Sam J. suggested the cemetary route (slightly modified due to Valley Inn being closed), and in a fit of madness I said sure! Then I wondered if... read more

    great TR - Lamarck 25.6 km 01:00 15.9mph pace

    Couldn't do this one last night as planned, so I squeezed it in after work and before going out to dinner with my family. 4x10 minute threshold intervals. Felt good to work hard - we'll s... read more

  14. RUN
    great Lunch run 8 km 00:45 09:05 pace

    Escape from the office before an afternoon of meetings. Always nice to clear my head before that.

    I kind of...miss speedwork. What?

  15. VELO
    great TR- Volunteer 12.3 km 00:30 15.2mph pace

    Realized I won't be able to get in a trainer ride tomorrow due to family obligations, so figured I'd least get in a recovery ride today. Too bad I couldn't do it outside!

  16. RUN
    great Chedoke 8 km 00:46 09:10 pace

    Feeling nicely recovered from ATB - Strava tells me I set a new PB on the Chedoke hill today, and I wasn't attempting to run it hard, so that's rather satisfying. Have to see if I can get... read more

    great Solo #530amswimclub 1800 yd 00:39 38:09 pace

    Probably for the best that Sam J. and Mari S. had other plans, since the pool was busy and we'd have had to circle swim if they'd come. The lifeguard was asking where they were, though, s... read more

    great Trainerroad - Mills 24.7 km 01:05 14.1mph pace

    Back on the trainer for tonight's ride. 3 sets of 3x2-minute VO2max repeats each starting @ 120% FTP and finishing @ 110% FTP. Or, as the on-screen instructions put it 'work hard for 45 s... read more

      Nice work Emma! During the really cold March we agreed that whoever complains about the weather being hot FIRST would have to buy icecream for the whole group. Does that work for your group?
