  1. RUN
    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.

      Lunch time already!? I feels like I just got up a few hours ago. Nice use of your lunch hour.

    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

    great Trainer Road - Monitor 20.8 km 01:00 12.9mph pace

    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

    great #5amrunclub 6.1 km 00:37 09:51 pace

    Has anyone mentioned that it's a little bit cold outside?

    great Trainer Road - Goddard 20.2 km 01:00 12.6mph pace

    I bailed on #5amrunclub today because my prone to bursitis hip was feeling a bit touchy after the weekend (and also because the weather was stupid. But mostly the hip. I swear). But everything feel... read more

  8. RUN
    great Bruce Trail 9.38 km 01:05 11:11 pace

    I run for a lot of different reasons. For fitness, because I really like food, because running is fun, because I have goals I want to achieve, etc. Today was about none of those things. I just want... read more

    great Trainer Road - Baxter 29.8 km 01:30 12.3mph pace

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

  10. RUN
    great Lake 10.1 km 01:02 09:50 pace

    Running! That's a thing I like! First run in almost two weeks and felt fantastic. Plus we got the band back together (Amy D. Sam J. Patty S.) for a purple and pink themed morning. Good stuff. ... read more

    great Trainer road - Mount Field 21.2 km 01:00 13.2mph pace

    Some long steady state intervals in this one, working on cadence. Lots of sweat. Loving Trainer Road so far; there is NO way I'd stay on the trainer for an hour without the feedback and goals,... read more

    great Trainer Road - 8 minute test 20 km 01:00 12.4mph pace

    Well that was tough. Although kind of fun (I'm becoming one of THOSE cyclists; next thing you know I'll be buying Sufferfest videos). I'm finding gear selection on the trainer to be ... read more

    great West Burlington 34.9 km 01:37 13.4mph pace

    Still just don't really feel like running, so I took the hybrid out for another spin. Glad to have those nice knobby tires with all the wet and slippery leaves all over Northshore. Saw lots of... read more

    great Walkers/Appleby/Bell School 35.6 km 01:38 13.5mph pace

    Met up with Nicole M. for a ride. Since my road bike is now on the trainer and I was too lazy to deal with it, I took my hybrid instead. Poor Big Red has been so neglected, and was a little cranky ... read more

      Strange that the toes were still cold! Was your head well covered? ("If your feet are cold, cover your head" they say). I just don't recall having cold feet myself when biking, but maybe it's a guy thing... I keep wondering if your socks were too tight and cutting down the blood flow?

    great Trainer Road - Birch 17.3 km 00:45 14.4mph pace

    Picked an interesting looking moderate workout from TR. Fun to follow along with the target power and cadence numbers. I assume the test I'll be doing Monday will be less fun and more pain :)

    great AC Pool 00:30

    Now that the races are done for the year, time to stop wimping out on the swimming thing and just go already. 30 minutes of flailing around, I think at least moderately successfully. I didn't ... read more

      Attagirl! Make sure you do a 8min test or a 20min test sometime soon, but you have to have legs super rested. And most likely take the day after off too, because you'll be crying.

      Good call on the 8 min test...be rested. It's HARD! But welcome - I've only had it a few weeks, but it's incredible! Thankfully only my cat watches me though! :)

    great Osler loop 6.8 km 00:39 09:11 pace

    Easy loop around, with about 1.5k at race pace in the middle just to get the feel in the legs. Felt pretty good. Maybe this race is going to be a good one!
