    good Can I have a do-over? 7.2 km 00:45 09:58 pace

    Took yesterday off due to my hamstring feeling a bit sore. Better today, but still a little touchy. My stomach was really bothering me on this one (likely has something to do with raiding the Hallo... read more

      EEK!! I'm glad that you're ok. Maybe next time run in all black for a better chance of survival. ;o) Hope the tummy feels better. I don't buy our Halloween candy until the last minute for this very reason.

      Yikes glad you are ok. I almost got nailed a while ago on Upper Middle. I now make sure I am running on the sidewalk with traffic along there so hopefully if cars are turning they see me a'coming. That's a stretch for most Burlington drivers I think.

    great Chedoke 9.89 km 00:57 09:14 pace

    Up to the top of the escarpment, then back down again for a little downhill running practice pre-R2H. I hope all the Ottawa folks are safe!

    great Drowned rat run 6.49 km 00:38 09:27 pace

    Got a little bit wet on this one! But it wasn't windy so it was pretty pleasant once I was warmed up a bit. I had a moment where I was so distracted worrying over a tricky bit of database work... read more

      You’ve got to stop thing about work while running :-) ….here is another joke for you:
      Q: Why do you never ask SQL people to help you move your furniture?
      A: They sometimes drop the table.

    great Tempo thursday 10.1 km 00:59 09:21 pace

    Can't say I've really missed #5amrunclub. Glad that's out of the way, though! Did 4k at tempo (5:10/km) and it felt pretty good. On to work and meetings and such exciting things.

  8. RUN
    great lunch run 7 km 00:40 09:13 pace

    I knew it was a bad idea to attempt interval work without a rest day first. So when the second interval sucked I called it a day. And so it goes sometimes. On to the next one (after a rest day!).

    great Group ride! 53 km 02:20 14.1mph pace

      Having never ridden 15th or 6th, I'm glad that it ended up being a good route. I know I'll be redoing that 50k many times next year. Nice to see you today. Hope you enjoyed the rest of it.

    great Pre turkey run 8.6 km 00:49 09:07 pace

    Got the turkey in the oven for our thanksgiving part I this afternoon, so snuck in a quick run while the husband and kids cleaned the house. Long run tomorrow. Lovely day out there!

    great Powerline trail 9.8 km 00:57 09:19 pace

    Finished up my half day of work, figured I'd get in a run before I head out for a million thanksgiving prep errands. Nice and easy on another super windy day.

    great Rail trail tempo 8.03 km 00:45 08:55 pace

    One of those headwind in every direction type runs. The 4k of tempo pace didn't feel great, but, hey, wind. And there's hot water in the showers again! Hooray! That got fixed a hell of a ... read more
