  1. RUN
    good on the mill 2 km 00:09:06 07:19 pace

    400m at 2.45 then 1km at 5:08 and then I sped up. 1.6k at 7:32 and I took a short break, then finished the last 400m. As usual, the limited environment of the treadmill made this possible; I tried ... read more

  2. RUN
    good the easy loop 5.6 km 00:38 10:55 pace

    Just jogging the easy loop. Leg was really bad at the start, hurt horribly, but I kept it easy and it started feeling better at about 1K. A cool and very humid morning, 23C, humidex 28, sunny, ligh... read more

  4. RUN
    good On the mill 1.6 km 00:07:28 07:30 pace

    Treadmill run. Slow 400m, sped up for the next 600m and stopped at 1km = 5 min 3 sec and tried to decide whether to do any more. The leg was a little sore from the speedy finish to my outdoor run a... read more

  5. RUN
    good the usual loop 5.6 km 00:38 10:55 pace

    Jogged almost the whole way this time, instead of walking the first 600m as usual. Also I experimented on the last 500m moderate uphill (the dangerous back road!) with a modified running stride (in... read more

  9. RUN
    good sports field 6 km 00:40 10:43 pace

    Just an easy jog to, from and around the large sports field. I saw one of my regulars, a young woman who usually walks her dogs earlier. Some girls were playing baseball. The mower was driving the ... read more

  10. RUN
    good Cobequid Trail 5 km 00:27 08:45 pace

    I'm swamped with things right now but just wanted to post about the trail race I took part in while on my trip. This was a gravel trail, through Truro in Nova Scotia, starting and ending at a ... read more

    good planks 00:08:00

    Last night, I had just nicely tucked myself into bed when I remembered the darn planks. Groan. Unwrapped the blankets and trudged downstairs to read about crime stats while doing the hot hundred pl... read more

  13. RUN
    good On the mill 2 km 00:08:44 07:01 pace

    The first 400m slow, 2 min 24 sec, the next 400m at 15 km/h then I tried to do the rest at 16.4 km/h. This is really good practice, as I'm recovering a good form that has been long lost while ... read more

  14. RUN
    good same old loop 5.6 km 00:40 11:29 pace

    Same old 600m walk and 5k jog. Knee felt like it was completely worn out, clicking and rattling, until about 1km when things went back to normal. A nice cool morning, bright overcast, medium winds... read more

  15. walk

  18. RUN
    good the treadmill 1.6 km 00:07:26 07:28 pace

    A slow 400m, a moderate 800m, then I bust loose at nearly 17km/h for the last 400m. I'm not sure if this helps or not but I sure would like to go this fast at the actual races. The thing is, t... read more

      it sounds to me like you need to simulate that kind of environment on your treadmill runs in order to properly train. I will bring my dogs with me and smoke cigarettes while you run on the mill.

    good Easy recovery run 5.6 km 00:40 11:29 pace

    Walked the usual 600m and jogged the loop, slowly for recovery. I saw the lady in pink and another woman also in a pinkish top whom I said "good morning" to, and who merely scowled at me ... read more

    Bayfront Race 5 km 00:26 08:13 pace

    Up in Owen Sound, this fun little race, then _watched_ the usual kids' 1k. I came in 61st, and was the 1st in my age group. (So happens that's also my age! So I joked if I'd been 1 y... read more
