  1. RUN
    great 2x around Westwood Lake 7.2 mi 01:15 10:26 pace

    Underestimated how much Scott had left to swim - would have had plenty of time to do another loop! Cool and cloudy with a short sprinkle left me a bit chilled by the time Scott was done, but feelin... read more

  2. RUN
    Bastion Running club 6.1 mi 01:25 13:56 pace

    Finally made it to the Saturday morning group run! Ran with 2 ladies into some of the Morrell Sanctuary trails and they are fantastic! The one leading had not been on them for a while so we did do ... read more

  3. RUN
    Fought for every mile! 5.01 mi 00:57 11:24 pace

    At 31C/88F it doesn't take long to get parched. By mile one I was arguing with myself that I should just head for home, but I kept at it and got the 5 that were on the schedule!

  4. RUN
    great Parkway Trail 3.66 mi 00:37 10:10 pace

    First time I was able to make it all the way back up the hills to my starting point!

  5. RUN
    Elk/Beaver Lake 12 mi 02:12 11:02 pace

    Got up early to drive down to Elk/Beaver Lake for our long run. My plan was for 15mi, which would be 2 loops plus an extra 1.5 out & back. Shortly into my second loop I wiped out (second time t... read more

  6. RUN
    great 4.46 mi 00:49 10:58 pace

    Good run around the lake, maybe one day I will make it all the way up the rock bluffs at the end 😎

      There's always someday...how long of a run would that be Loreen? Good job today!

      The loop around the lake (including the bluffs) is about 3.5-3.75mi. My distance today includes about .25mi to access the main trail, and some overlap from that point to the beach. I did not stop my garmin where I had to walk up the bluffs.

    I can't believe I live here! Westwood Lake trail goes all the way around.

    Look at what came today! Thanks, Sue!

  9. RUN
    Visitor Centre 3.7 mi 00:38 10:09 pace

    Went to start my Garmin and realized I forgot to put it on! Good thing I had my phone - used the Asics app I have my marathon plan in. It was 30C/85F out there so I was actually glad to have the 20... read more

  10. RUN
    great Buttertubs Marsh 7.5 mi 01:21 10:45 pace

    So my original plan was to run what I did yesterday, then tack on the out and back on the Parkway Trail to the visitor centre. Well, when I got on the trail that circles the marsh, it was just so n... read more

  11. RUN
    good Touring a new (to me) route! 4.3 mi 00:48 11:05 pace

    It was stinking hot, I was hungry, thirsty and cranky, but glad I went. We stopped along the way so Scott could explain other trails or options and I found out the track is only about a mile run fr... read more

  12. RUN
    good Westwood Lake 2 loops 7.96 mi 01:30 11:20 pace

    If I can ever find a flat route around here, I am going to fly! The first loop usually isn't too bad, but the second loop kills my mojo!

  13. RUN
    great Visitor Centre 3.93 mi 00:40 10:14 pace

    The sun came out to play today!

  14. RUN
    good Parkway Trail 12.39 mi 02:19 11:13 pace

    The hills here in Nanaimo, BC are kicking my ass! And even though it was cool and cloudy, I was drenched from the humidity! On the bright side, I now get to train in similar conditions to my target... read more

  15. RUN
    good Parkway Trail 4 mi 00:39 09:45 pace

    Cool and cloudy today. Went out to the tourist centre and back again. Still have to mostly walk up that last hill getting back, but I was quite surprised by a 9:25 on mile 3, which included stoppin... read more

  16. RUN
    good Westwood Lake 4.66 mi 00:52 11:13 pace

    Went out with intention to do 2 loops, but no expectations. It was hot and muggy and the second loop got cancelled due to no water.

    • Ben K.

      Good job on getting at least the first loop done. What do you mean no water? Did you carry some and drink it all the first loop? Wise choice not to push it too hard.

      Didn't bring any. Kinda hoping my husband would drive over to the beach with a bottle for me between loops, but that didn't happen. Guess I should probably ask him to instead of just think about it next time 😉

    great 12 rabbits and 1 snake 4.26 mi 00:42 09:45 pace

    Getting much better on these hills! There were only a few rabbits around today, but I had to dodge my first snake! I was already watching out for slugs on the trail (they were in abundance yesterda... read more

    Woke up to thunderstorms this morning and it rained on and off all day, sometimes pretty heavy. With the rain, the slugs come out so you have to watch your step. I managed to keep my shoes slime fr... read more

    Elk/Beaver Lake Trail 6.2 mi

    Walked the lake trail before heading home from Victoria today. Tomorrow will be my first official day of working from home. Let the adventure begin!

  20. RUN
    great Parkway Trail 8 mi 01:22 10:16 pace

    Good run! Went out and back on the Parkway trail. Tourist center is at 1.8 mi from where I start so I can stop there for water. Second half was much easier than coming back on Jingle Pot and didn&#... read more
