  1. RUN
    good Downtown Toronto 6.11 km 00:47 12:24 pace

    First time with the Saturday morning group. I ran there slowly so my legs/hip would be all nicely warmed up. Thank goodness I did... this group is a lot faster than I am. Really felt it towards the... read more

    good Always nearby... 6.43 km 00:49 12:14 pace

    This was my "long run" that I decided to do on my own. 10/1s in hot and muggy weather. It felt a bit challenging at times as I'm totally not used to running in this humidity. But wha... read more

    good Close to home on Lakeshore. 5.08 mi 01:01 12:03 pace

    My running buddy was doing 12k and I didn't want to jump that high in mileage since I don't run regularly. I don't want to compromise my return PLUS I still have a bit of a mental bl... read more

    good In the neighborhood 2.42 mi 00:28 11:44 pace

    Mind was playing tricks on me today. Yes, even on a short run. Started looking at other runners and envying their seemingly easy running when mine was so laborious. I didn't dare talk too much... read more

    Sunday morning run with running buddy Aestus. Had a bit of tightness in my right hip and a stitch and my body was saying WTH are you doing on a Sunday morning :) But I soldiered on and all was wel... read more

  8. RUN
    good 4.25 km 00:32 11:56 pace

    I almost didn't go. I kept waffling, yes, no, yes, no. Downstairs, outside... this went on for about an hour. Then out I went because as much as I dislike running in high humidity, the treadmi... read more

    good 5.09 km 00:41 4.7mph pace

    Doing a 5k run after a spin class was probably not a good idea. It used to be done on a regular basis, but now, not so much. First half of the run was great, I had lots of energy, we made it to Dun... read more

    -26C windchill equals for a very satisfying run. A bit brisk at the beginning, ankles and arms were a bit cold but got better eventually. There was not much wind and it helped a lot. I looked like ... read more

    Not entirely back but on the road to recovery. Spinning 3-4 times a week really helps with the cardio. So is Pilates and yoga although truth be known, I'm more into Pilates than yoga. Was conv... read more

      Way to soldier on and make the most of it! I thought about you yesterday on my long run when I wanted to quit and asked myself "What would Sylvie do?" and then answered, "why, soldier on of course!" so I kept going. Cycling is so different than running and it sounds like you made a good trip out of. I haven't ridden with a group before; just go out and do my own thing.

      Thanks guys! Bill, you made me smile when I read your comment! I kept saying to myself "You sure ain't gonna quit missy!" knowing full well I had no intention to give up. I did however, think about doing the whole distance but it would have taken me way too long so decided to stick to a nice number :) Thanks Jeffrey, I tell ya, I needed a hug at one point! And you're right, next one will be better, I'm already organizing it, over 30k!

      nice run Sylvie..especially sort..foam roller is the best..do you do any ITB stretching exercises? They help with the hip flexors, hammies, and ultimately the ITB

      Sylvie...good stuff for your last minute decision! I could never have pulled this off the way you did! I had DNF in my head for almost half the race today , and never EVER think that! Kudos to you for this one :)
