    great Lake 8.06 km 00:48 09:34 pace

    Went out early before the kids got up - wanted to get it done before the Easter egg hunt. Things seen along the waterfront: a lovely sunrise, a small choir singing hymns, and a guy in a bunny costu... read more

      The trail gets better just after where you stopped- some fun, gnarly single track overlooking the escarpment if you don't mind dodging trees & etc.

    great Lake 8.25 km 00:50 09:44 pace

    Recovery run. Played 'spot the race shirt' - lost count of the ATB shirts after 8, plus spotted two Road 2 Hope. I had on the only Mississauga shirt, I think. Felt good to get the legs mo... read more

    great Lakeshore/Beach 36 km 03:39 09:47 pace

    What an amazing morning! Joined Patty S. & Amy D. for a little 36k run, with special guest appearance by Sam J. with orange slices at the halfway point (my kids are currently finishing them of... read more

      Excellent run! You aren't prepping the oranges properly at home maybe, I cut them into sixths after washing and leave in a bowl, they get scarfed up in no time. Peeling them stings their fingers so they won't.

    good Princess Point 11.5 km 01:05 09:05 pace

    Some nasty headwind out there today! I've been largely ignoring speedwork because my goal right now is just to finish the marathon, but I felt like trying some tempo work today, so this was a ... read more

    great Headon Forest 8.3 km 00:49 09:24 pace

    Finally managed to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Glad I got it done! Skirt and a t shirt, lovely.

    Run #2 for today. No rain, but windy. It's always something!

  12. RUN
    great 9.1 km 00:57 10:00 pace

    #5amrunclub First of two runs today. I wish I could say it was a lovely romp through a light spring rain, but it was more buckets of freezing water and lots of soakers.

  13. FIT
    great TRX class 01:00

    Mercy that was a tough workout. But I did all the atomic pushups without cheating, so there's that.

  14. RUN
    great Headon Forest 8.2 km 00:50 09:42 pace

    Wow what a beautiful day! Get out there and soak up that sun! Recovery run to loosen things up after yesterday's long.

  15. RUN
    great Mississauga Marathon route 33 km 03:18 09:39 pace

    That was a confidence builder! So glad to have company for this one, it's always more fun to yell curses at the headwind with friends. Amy D. and Patty S. and I met up unspeakably early and ra... read more

      Awesome work Emma. Seems to me I saw 4:45 am in Amy's post .... I'd say it would take a running buddy and about 3 sticks of dynamite to get me out of bed on a Saturday at that time!! Well done to all of you!

    Legs are feeling surprisingly good after ATB, and I knew my options this week were either run this 16k with Patty S. today, or probably have to do a double on Thursday. Company and getting it over ... read more

      Root canal was fine, thanks JP. I've had a couple, and I have to say there's quite a difference in having them done by an endodontist. Much gentler and more efficient.
