  1. walk
    good easy day walk 1.8 km 00:15:00 13:26 pace

    Just the easy day treadmill walk. Decided to go a little slower and keep my leg in recovery mode. Important information: do NOT eat fresh coconut just before going on the treadmill unless you have ... read more

  2. FIT
    good planks and pushups 00:10:00

    After the usual physio, the planks and pushups. I forgot to do the hoops, may go back down and do those. Good night! Early --12:30.... just did the hoops.... and now it's nearly 1, darn it.

  3. RUN
    good on the mill 2 km 00:10:35 08:30 pace

    The slow then fast treadmill jog. Am I ever drenched in sweat... leg was sore to start but seems OK now, maybe it's just numb.

  4. walk
    good the usual slightly longer route 5.25 km

    Just speed walking the usual outdoor loop, the longer one. Ridiculous amounts of traffic at 7 am.

  5. FIT
    good another fitness thing 00:24

    This time includes this morning's weights and floor exercises, plus the hoops and planks tonight. (I did the physio twice today as usual, and my knee was strangely crappy this evening, though ... read more

  6. walk
    good the usual light walk 1.89 km 00:15:00 12:47 pace

    Just the usual alternate-day treadmill walk. Seems to be coming along steadily so far.

  7. FIT
    good hot hundreds day 210 00:10:00

    Hot hundreds plus pushups, day 210. Good night! Though it's 2 am, this time it's because I crashed on the couch and slept for almost 2 hours so it's not really "night owl" ... read more

  8. RUN
    good TM jog 2 km 00:11:05 08:55 pace

    An easy treadmill jog, a bit over 6 min/km for the first km and then sped up to a bt under 5min/km for the second. I'm out of shape, I was really puffing for this one.

  9. walk
    good short loop 4 km

    Forgot to time it, but I was lying awake last night with stabbing pains from my broken toe so didn't get much sleep, and slept in. So time is short! A very nice morning, very quiet for some re... read more

  10. FIT
    good hot hundreds 00:10:00

    Just the hot hundred planks, no hoops tonight, since cutting back the planks didn't help my leg, and I wondered if it was the hoops that were bothering it. Yes, it seems that was the problem. ... read more

  11. walk
    good down to Tim's and the drugstore 4.2 km

    Walked to Tim's (coffee shop) for a tea and stopped by the bank and drugstore. A warm day, quite nice!

  12. Just watched the finish line at the Ottawa Marathon and saw Emily Kerr finish in 3:50 and Nicole and Sam finish at 4:11.11 -- congrats to all, hooray! (And saw 4-5 people carried across the finish ... read more

  13. FIT
    good another night 00:12:00

    It was actually more than 12 minutes but got it done. Day 208 of hoops and planks. I tried to keep the strain off the knee again.

  14. Ottawa 10K live stream... the first woman finished 10k in 30.58 minutes and the first man finished in 27.48 approx (I missed it). Very hilly route.

      It sure is! I was studying their form but basically they are just really, really fit and efficient.

      I used to work there, and I would bike to work along the trails and back roads; I studied the landscape as the cameras rolled, trying to identify places, and found many things had changed quite a lot since the 1970s when I was there. (Well, of course!)

  15. walk
    good downtown stroll 5.6 km

    The usual downtown stroll to bank, bookstore and café. Ate only some fruit there as we had just made rolls and rhubarb/strawberry pie, and weren't hungry.

  16. walk
    good easy day again 1.82 km 00:15:00 13:14 pace

    Another easy day treadmill walk. For some reason I started this feeling my slow speed (6.8km/hr) was pretty fast so it took a while to warm up. But kept hitting the FASTER button and was going at a... read more

      Reading about everyone's races is making me really restless to go for a nice fast run. But I tried that a few times in the past weeks and it just hurt so much I had to stop. So it's back to the patient and slow build up and hoping that this will eventually pay off.

      Stay patient, but don't lose the desire to run fast (and indulge that desire no matter what, once in a while!) :)

  17. Have a great Sulphur Springs run today, Patty and Henro! A nice cool morning for it!

  18. FIT
    good modified planks 00:12:00

    To take the strain off the knee, I had to modify my planks, but did the same amount of core work. Should have done this before! 2 am, but who's counting.

      I am!! Night owl! Would be interested to hear more about the new type of plank you are doing

      When I was doing the planks before, I was doing it toes and elbows. Now I'm doing it knees and hands, extended out. Same core stress but doesn't strain the knee (and also doesn't do my leg muscles much good, but worth the tradeoff IMHO since my knee isn't coming out of this feeling shattered).

    A little faster on the treadmill. It was cool in the house this morning but I'm still drenched with sweat! My leg is definitely improving under this regimen -- it didn't buckle or give ex... read more
