  1. RUN
    good 8k Thursday 7.73 km 00:54 11:16 pace

    It was tough to motivate myself to get out there but it was curriculum night at Mac's school so I squeezed this run in by running way out of the way to get there where I met up with James and ... read more

  2. RUN
    alright Wednesday 10k 10.44 km 01:13 11:19 pace

    Nice run with Linda tonight, we took it easy and chatted the whole time. Quads, calves and ankles are all tight now though. Even though I didn't run on Monday I feel like they haven't had... read more

  3. RUN
    Rats Tuesday 7.31 km 00:50 10:59 pace

    Good solid run tonight but man my legs are still angry from Sunday. I need to be reminded to take it easy and not push things too much these next few weeks. I can't finish the marathon if I&#x... read more

  4. RUN
    great Marathon Clinic 29k 29.62 km 03:40 11:57 pace

    Finally a long run with perfect weather conditions. The route was good, plenty to look at and just the right amount of hills. Mentally I needed this run to be good and it was! 4 weeks to go!

    Good stress reliever run.

  7. RUN
    alright Marathon Clinic LSD 15 22.5 km 02:49 12:04 pace

    Was very much looking forward to this 'shorter' run but I may have over-hyped it and in the end it kinda sucked.

  8. RUN
    blah Thursday solo run 5 km 00:34 10:56 pace

    Started with a headache and hoped the run would cure it. Unfortunately it did the exact opposite. It's how it goes sometimes. I'm sure the heat didn't help but there was a beautiful ... read more

  9. RUN
    good 8k Wednesday 8.06 km 00:57 11:18 pace

    Perhaps I spoke too soon yesterday when I said I was feeling pretty good after Sunday's 33k. I think after tonight's run I'm starting to feel the effects. Time to take it easy and ge... read more

      All downhill from here. A bit of "rest" for the next two weeks with a mere 23km in the middle and then two more big runs before the taper!

  10. RUN
    great Tuesday rat run 6.34 km 00:46 11:43 pace

    Ran a little 6k tonight and I gotta say I'm feeling pretty darn good two days after my 33km longest ever crazy hot run. That is all my training paying off right there! Sweet.

  11. RUN
    tired Marathon Clinic LSD 14 33 km 04:30 13:09 pace

      I might be sad when it's over but perhaps I'll feel differently in 4 or 5 weeks

    That was an awesome run with Lindsey. I'm so glad we chose this race as her first 5k. She was so awesome out there on that course and finished with the biggest smile on her face! I am one prou... read more

  17. RUN
    blah 8k clinic run 8.05 km 01:01 12:07 pace

    It was so steamy out there and i was tired. Definitely up there in the top 5 worst training runs. A tough mental run for sure.

  18. RUN
    good Hills Hills Hills 7.92 km 00:59 11:56 pace

    Headed out to the hills and tried some new ones tonight. I thought I could beat the rain but when I was at the top of the 6th one it started to come down so I called it a day and headed home.
